The internet expressed its support to Britney Spears upon seeing a newly released documentary that details the disturbing realities about the pop star’s career and personal life– from how misogynistic press has mistreated her to the latest scoops on the well-known conservatorship saga.

Titled ‘Framing Britney Spears,’ the documentary by ‘The New York Times’ reinforces the #FreeBritney movement launched by fans in 2019 to raise awareness on the complexities of the controversial conservatorship.

If you’re not familiar with the term, a conservatorship is a legal arrangement where a guardian is appointed by a judge to have full authority over someone’s finances and life decisions due to their physical and mental inability to look after themselves. In Britney’s case, it’s her father, Jamie, who is the ‘conservator,’ while Britney is considered the ‘conservatee.’

If you remember back in 2008, the ‘Toxic’ singer became the center of media attention after a public breakdown. A year of erratic acts– such as that much-documented incident where she shaved her head– caused Spears to be placed on a psychiatric hold at a Los Angeles hospital. It was during that time when Jamie Spears was legally put in the position to take charge of most aspects of Britney’s life, from her finances, health, up to her personal decisions.

The documentary, which is now available on Hulu, sheds light on how the public went too hard on Britney, showing footage of various hosts and personalities harassing the young woman, paparazzi relentlessly crossing her boundaries, and interviews where she is asked questions that are simply too inappropriate for her age.

While the public outcry to free Britney Spears from the overly strict conservatorship has been around for years now, the documentary served as a wake-up call for people that the now 39-year-old performer is yet to free herself from all the troubles caused by the long-running court-ordered arrangement. And thanks to it, more and more people have begun rallying behind Britney.

One Twitter user said: “#FramingBritneySpears was a painful watch, to say the least. What a wake-up call. This must be a moment of change #FreeBritney.

Glamour Magazine, who admits to having enabled Britney’s troubled years, took to Instagram and issued an apology. “We are all to blame for what happened to Britney Spears – we may not have caused her downfall, but we funded it. And we can try to make up for that.” #FreeBritney,” said the online women’s magazine.

Even celebrities have joined the online rally, using their own platform to even amplify the uproar.
