Britney Spears fans, affectionately called the #BritneyArmy, are not done waging war on the singer’s family in the wake of her reports of mistreatment under a nearly decade-and-a-half long court-ordered conservatorship.
While one victory came courtesy of the GRAMMY winner’s father recently stepping down from his leading role in the arrangement, the #Army apparently won’t be satisfied until Britney is completely freed of the legal stronghold.
Until then, they’ve now placed her sister – Jamie Lynn – in their sights.
Hop inside to see how:
Though she later came out with claims she kept mum out of respect for her sister’s privacy, Jamie Lynn’s silence during Brit’s reported mistreatment is the center of much noise this week.
Taking to Change.org, a dedicated Britney fan – Jubemmeva Misanthrope – launched a petition calling for JL to be terminated from season 2 of Netflix dramedy, ‘Sweet Magnolias.’ Although she plays a pivotal role on the show and its yet-premiered season has already wrapped production, Misanthrope says she deserves to be booted from the hit series because she “did absolutely nothing to help [Britney] as [her conservatorship] was going on. In fact, she fed off her sisters conservatorship and took advantage of her sisters money and well-being.”
Quietly launched over the summer, the petition recently gained traction and soared to 27,800 signatures (as of time of this report). At writing, Netflix has not issued a statement about the hoopla.
But wait, there’s more.
Jamie Lynn has attempted to capitalize on the heightened media attention around Britney’s conservatorship drama by raising awareness about her forthcoming memoir, ‘Things I Should Have Said’ (due in stores January 2022).
Because the book reportedly features details about her own mental health struggles, JL announced she was going to donate proceeds of its sales to the mental health nonprofit, This is My Brave. That is, until the #BritneyArmy stepped in.
Taking to the organization’s social media handles in droves to criticize its partnership with JL (in light of Britney’s ongoing situation), the nonprofit took to Instagram earlier this week to reveal it had severed professional ties with the younger Spears.

Though Jamie Lynn has not officially responded to the This is My Brave report, sources claim she was ‘blindsided’ by the news.
