Britney Spears fans rip Diane Sawyer for 2003 interview that left singer in tears after it resurfaces in new documentaryFebruary 9, 2021
BRITNEY Spears fan ripped into Diane Sawyer for her 2003 interview that left the singer in tears after it resurfaced in a new documentary.
People have been left stunned as they take a stroll down memory lane in the entertainer's chaotic life thanks to the doc Framing Britney Spears.
While many moments from the documentary have left viewers shocked and angry, it's a look back at the now infamous Primetime interview that has truly ruffled their feathers.
At the time, the one-on-one chat touched on many different aspects of Britney's life and career, including her failed relationship with Justin Timberlake.
Diane said: "[Justin] has gone on television, and pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering…what did you do?"
The interview, which also includes the entertainer breaking down in tears, made a stunning 180, however, when the journalist told Britney she had "disappointed a lot of mothers in this country."
She then proceeded to show the pop star a quote from now former first lady of Maryland, Kendel Ehrlich, who said that if she "had an opportunity to shoot Britney Spears," she would do it.
Diane then seems to defend the quote, which led plenty of fans to quickly rush to Twitter to slam the interview.
One wrote: "Obviously disgusted by Justin after watching Framing Britney Spears but when is Diane Sawyer going to apologize for that interview?"
Another added: "I’m sorry, why is Diane Sawyer defending someone who threatened to shoot Britney Spears?"
A third chimed in: "Diane Sawyer owes Britney Spears a sincere apology," while one user wrote, "She was so awful to her."
The ex boy band member, 40, has also felt plenty of heat after the documentary's release as many believed Justin made Britney into the "villain" of their break-up, which soon led to her downward spiral including drug use accusations and hospitalizations.
As rumors swirled that the Womanizer singer betrayed him during the romance, Justin released the Cry Me A River music video featuring an Britney lookalike as a cheating ex-girlfriend.
One angry fan wrote: "Justin Timberlake took full advantage of the s***ty misogyny and double standards of the early 00s for his own gain. Without Brit, there’s no him. He was absolutely nothing special. Still ain't s**t."
Another said: "Wow what Justin did to Britney Spears is so messed up. I used to love him so much when I was a teenager. So disappointing."
The film comes as Britney battles her father, Jamie Spears, in court over who should control her finances and personal life decisions.
The documentary also touches on Britney, now 39, shaving her head, attacking paparazzi with an umbrella, and her marriage to failed rapper Kevin Federline.
