“Replace the Confederate statues with an actual Louisiana hero."
To pop fans everywhere Britney Spears' is a pop icon, but if it'd be understandable that excitement is amped up a bit more in her homestate of Louisiana. Now, a new petition via Change.org wants to memorialize Spears by replacing statues honoring the Confederacy with figures in her likeness.
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.”
