Britney Spears is being dragged into the muddy waters of the internet after dragging Ludacris, 50 Cent, Jay Z, and Puff Daddy into her feud with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
She’s been tagged as a racist for mentioning only Black artists in her ‘weed’ comment via the Daily Mail;
Britney Spears has been accused of racism after she said that her teenage sons were growing up in a house with more marijuana than a slew of famous faces – all of them black.
The 40-year-old singer is currently in the midst of an explosive and highly-public row with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, who last week told DailyMail.com their sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, do not want to see their mother.
Spears posted a lengthy retort on Instagram, attacking Federline’s parenting and claiming the boys were being raised in a household ‘has more weed than Ludacris, 50 Cent, Jay Z and Puff Daddy combined.’
It was quickly noted that all four people she cited as marijuana smokers were black, and several people pointed out that former dealer 50 Cent is now avowedly clean-living.
‘So everyone is just ignoring how #BritneySpears assumed a bunch of black rappers are smoking weed and compared successful black millionaires to her sperm factory, no job having baby daddy?’ one person said.
‘Britney Spears named a bunch of black rappers to make a comparison about weed,’ another pointed out.
‘Why those particular people? And they’re all black,’ said one woman, writing on an online discussion board.
‘I don’t like that at all. It’s giving she assumes every black rapper smokes weed.
‘And when she thinks of weed she thinks of black people. Interesting.’
Another said: ‘Jay Z and 50 have famously said they don’t do drugs. The only reason she named them is because they’re black.’
One commented: ‘The racism jumped out,’ while another said: ‘This seems racially motivated…..’
Yet another sarcastically stated: ‘So she didn’t know any white people who smoke weed?’
‘She could have at least through Willie Nelson in the mix,’ one replied.
The Louisiana-born singer said in her lengthy post that the situation with her sons ‘breaks my heart.’
She said the teenagers acted in a ‘hateful’ way to her during some of their visits and didn’t want to spend time together.
Spears added that her children’s indifference was frustrating, writing: ‘I want to shake their shoulders and say wake up I’m here too!!! The teenage age is weird, I don’t know what’s going on in their heads!!!’
