Britney Spears Tells Trolls to Be Nice

Stay safe, be nice and back off.

That’s the message from Britney Spears, who has endured more than enough from trolls and gronks who pester the performer for posting her happy stuff online.

In the gentlest possible way, the “Toxic” singer has called for them to shut the hell up.

“Reading all of the mean comments really hurts my feelings,” she writes on Instagram, “and I wanted to share because you really shouldn’t be saying all of these mean things to someone you don’t even know.” This goes for “bullying anyone really.”

With the coronavirus pandemic gobbling up headlines and turning the world into a more confused place than it was yesterday, Britney figures the flood of mean tweets and Instagrams are way out of line.

“Hard times like we are currently living through should really teach us to be nice to one another,” Brit writes. On posting pics of a horse or a swimsuit (actual criticisms), get a life. “It’s important to see things that bring happiness during hard times and making light of a situation can sometimes help people,” she explains. And with that, she’ll keep on sharing.

Brit has had more time than usual to spend on her socials. The 38-year-old mom recently snapped a bone in her foot during a dance routine, an injury that required a stint in hospital.
