Christina Aguilera unfollows Britney Spears after body-shaming post
Christina Aguilera unfollowed Britney Spears on Instagram over a controversial post that body-shamed the “Beautiful” singer’s backup dancers.
The social media snub came shortly after Spears, 40, posted a lengthy caption Monday afternoon that read in part, “If I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small.”
The “Toxic” singer penned the message alongside a quote attributed to Rodney Dangerfield that read, “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”
Spears’ post, which was still on her page as of Tuesday morning, received immense backlash.
“Body shaming others is not the move,” one Instagram user commented.
“You need to delete this,” another suggested.
Aside from unfollowing her longtime pop rival, Christina Aguilera hasn’t responded publicly to the post criticizing her dancers’ bodies.
Spears has not shied away from calling out anyone and everyone since the termination of her conservatorship in November 2021 allowed her to speak freely for the first time in 13 years.
Earlier this week, Britney Spears admitted to her Instagram followers that she “subconsciously” wants to “offend people” because she has “been so f–king offended” throughout her life, particularly during her conservatorship, which put Jamie, 70, in control of his daughter’s personal, medical and financial decisions.
Christina Aguilera was born on December 18, 1980. She is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and television personality. Known for her four-octave vocal range and ability to sustain high notes, she has been referred to as the “Voice of a Generation“.
