Jamie Lynn Spears is once again being targeted by the #FreeBritney movement after her elder sister, Britney Spears posted a scathing post on Instagram directed toward her 'close' ones who apparently never stood up in support for her when she truly needed it. On Friday, July 16, Britney posted a poster that read "Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask."

As a caption to the post, she wrote, "There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support … there’s nothing worse than that !!!! How dare the people you love the most say anything at all … did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO … so if you’re reading this and you know who you are … and you actually have the nerve to say anything about my situation just to save face for yourself publicly !!! If you’re gonna post something …. Please stop with the righteous approach when you’re so far from righteous it’s not even funny …. and have a good day !!!!! PS if you’re reading this today and you can relate …. I’m sorry because I know what it’s like … and I send you my love."

The post had a number of middle finger emojis towards the end and ended with an array of kissing emojis. While Britney did not explicitly take any names in her post, most of her fans quickly guessed that her message was meant for her sister Jamie Lynn. As Britney's younger sister, she has already been previously criticized for not speaking up against their father's conservatorship. Oddly enough, the post has been liked by Jamie Lynn herself. 


"Jamie Lynn, Lynne Spears & the rest of y’all liars! Y’all can kiss Britney’s lilly white southern Louisiana a**!!" one user wrote, while another said, "Britney Spears just shaded the FVCK out of her “sister” Jamie Lynn on Instagram! Britney YOU ARE so brave and strong and LOVED #FreeBritney." The third quipped, "Just me watching the internet drag Jamie Lynn Spears after Britney's IG post. #FreeBritney." The next commented, "Jamie Lynn, sis, just last year you were saying Britney wanted to keep her conservatorship private. You acted like all of us were pests for advocating for her. Now you are suddenly for #FreeBritney? What changed you miserable, jealous little person? #JamieLynnSpearsIsOverParty" One more remarked, "Jamie Lynn: All we can do is pray.. Britney: please stop with the righteous approach, when you’re so far from righteous."

Another said, "I know Justin and Jamie Lynn somewhere right now shaking and throwing up." A commenter tweeted "Jamie Lynn really said me go and tell the press I’m #FreeBritney Britney said na na na nice try, not today satan I love Britney so much. She’s not stupid, she’s been paying attention to everything! Don’t insult her intelligence!!!!!!" One more chimed in, with, "This is so about Jamie Lynn I love to see it Britney really dragged her hard lollll" A person reacted with, "#JamieLynnSpearsIsOverParty Jamie Lynn isn't the most "supportive" sis. We pick our friends. Unfortunately, we can't pick our family and Britney is just a person and like many others, she's got a sh*tty family. Many of us can relate. So, Britney's fam is snaked TF out."

Last month, Jamie Lynn posted a series of videos on her Instagram stories, speaking in support of Britney, weeks after her conservatorship hearing. Jamie, 30, shared the videos on June 28. In the videos, Jamie explained why she remained silent post-Britney's testimony at her conservatorship hearing and other grievances she has endured over the years. Jamie started off by saying, "I felt like until my sister could speak for herself and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, it wasn’t my place, and it wasn’t the right thing to do." She added, "But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel I need to say." Britney Spears appeared in court and gave testimony regarding her controversial conservatorship for the first time on June 23.

She insisted that she has “only loved, adored and supported" her sister. She said, "This is my freakin’ big sister before any of this bullsh**t. I don’t care if she wants to run away to the rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before. I have nothing to gain or lose either way. This situation does not affect me either way because I am only her sister who is only concerned about her happiness."
