There are currently over 725 supporters of the petition created by Kassie Thibodeaux to “do the right thing” and “replace the Confederate statues with an actual Louisiana hero.”

The petition says, “Not only has Britney proven her talent, but she's proven her strength of character by not only overcoming highly publicized mental breakdown, but by continuously working towards improving herself. She's an inspiration to millions,” later explaining the contributions she’s made to her “beloved home state.”

The petition reads, “She's already earned her star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and now it's time for her home state to honor her with the tribute that she deserves.”
