It sounds like Jamie Lynn Spears wanted to take a walk down memory lane Thursday night (April 4), when she took to Twitter to post the above photo of herself as a young girl, riding in a car with sister Britney Spears and Britney’s then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.
Jamie Lynn included with the picture, “@jtimberlake Weird hearing ur music as an Adult. Ha. Not only do I appreciate it. I GET it. #jay #crymeariver #mirror.”
However, the tweet was soon deleted and it sounds as though it was because Britney’s fans were none too happy with Jamie Lynn’s tweeting at Timberlake about his Britney break-up song.
One fan remarks, “‘Cry Me a River’ hashtag? The infamous track about Britney? I feel uncomfortable.”
Jamie Lynn quickly replaced her nostalgia-fueled tweet with, “I hope you all know that my tweets are only to support my sister @britneyspears – anything left over was to @jtimberlake #sisterlove #4eva.”
One fan interprets that to mean “she loves her sister first and foremost. However, doesn’t see the harm in listening to Justin, or missing him.”
But that doesn’t seem to have placated Britney’s fans. One writes, “then don’t say you ‘appreciate’ songs like #crymeariver And that ‘now that I’m older I get it’. That’s not supportive.”
Another fan just writes, “STOP. NOW.”, but most fans just seem confused.
So far, Britney and JT are both mum about the now-deleted tweet.
