Britney Spears attends the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 12, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Britney Spears’ recent Instagram post backing Black Lives Matter is causing a divide with her fans, with some believing that it’s proof she’s being “controlled.”

Spears shared an image on her feed of a black bus passenger holding up a sign that read: “White people have generational wealth. Black people have generational trauma. #WeAreNotTheSame.” She wrote in her caption: “Just sayin’ 🗣🗣🗣 !!!! #BlackLivesMatter #BLM.”

Her nearly 30 million followers on Instagram saw the post on Monday, the day jury deliberations started over the ex-cop charged with George Floyd’s murder.

Some fans were excited to see the pop star weighing in, with one commenting under the post: “We looooove woke Britney yaaas.”

Another wrote: “Hey fellow white people: our generational childhood trauma is not the same thing as generational racist trauma. Get it together and educate yourselves!”

Another fan in support wrote: “So important to use your platform to speak on this Britney!!!!! It’s time redistribute our wealth and pay reparations NOW”

However, there was a lot of negative feedback, with many people bringing up generational wealth to Spears, with one person writing: “Still waiting to inherit all this magical generational wealth. If I don’t go to work, I don’t eat.”

Another upset user wrote: “Where? I know for a fact I ain’t getting nothing from my parents.”

Others thought this post, like many of her others, wasn’t posted by Spears and is another example of how she is being “controlled”: “If ppl didn’t believe you were being controlled, they sure do now…”

Another fan didn’t believe it either, writing: “Britney didn’t post this y’all.”
