Jamie Lynn Spears has broken her silence for the first time since the New York Times: Framing Britney documentary dropped on Feb. 5 on FX and Hulu. In it, the doc reviewed the extremely harsh treatment Britney Spears, 39, received at the hands of the media, from accusations of not being a good role model for girls as a young performer.
It was to cover her very public 2007 breakdown where she shaved her head and ended up hospitalized in a psychiatric ward. Jamie Lynn Spears is reminding the media to “do better” as several news outlets and websites have already apologized for the brutal way they handled a young woman’s personal crisis, just because she was a world famous pop superstar.
“Dear Media, try not to repeat the mistakes of your past. Look where that got us. Do better,” Jamie Lynn, 29, wrote in a Feb. 12 Instagram story. “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind, always.”
In a second post, she also said that she “loves” Britney Spears very much. The brutal and unsympathetic treatment by some media outlets towards Britney during her mental health crisis was so cruel, especially by today’s standards.
