To be fair, Kim K has never not been criticized for more provacative photos so that probably isn’t the best comparison to use, but I get the point that Britney supporters were looking to make.
Britney Spears’ frequent nudes have never failed to cause a stir online, although some people seem to think that the 40-year-old’s decision to freely show off her body is problematic. After she uploaded a series of naked pictures to her Instagram on Monday, May 9th, that were quickly criticized, the pop star’s fans didn’t take long to rush to her defence.
As Page Six reports, the expecting mother dropped off photos that she says were taken from her last trip to Mexico, before she had a “baby inside of [her].” They see her standing completely naked in front of the camera, her hands covering her breasts, and various emojis hiding her crotch. While some of her friends dropped by the comment section to show their support and praise the singer’s beauty, others made comments about her mental health, claiming that she “needs help” and that her father, Jamie Spears, may have had the right idea in placing her under a conservatorship all those years ago.
Of course, being a celebrity comes with criticism, but many internet users pointed out that Kim Kardashian doesn’t get the same sort of flack when she poses nude – which she’s done on more than one occasion.
“So Kim Kardashian can do this Britney Spears can’t?” one user asked. “And you all wanna call her crazy when she is doing the same thing all the other girls are doing? Make it make sense.
Others wrote, “Kim Kardashian has posed nude over 70 times yet Britney Spears is a problem? Y’all f*ckin annoying,” and “The hypocrisy of some people loving Kim Kardashian’s nude post because it was professionally taken. The life of aesthetics. Britney Spears is just living her best existence with zero f*cks given. No lighting.”
Check out more Twitter reactions below, and let us know what your thoughts. Are Britney’s posts really a reason for doubt or concern? Honestly, none of us can really relate to what she’s been through over the years so I don’t feel like it’s my place to judge how she expresses herself freshly out of that or while adjusting to a normal life.

Smh. People hating on an ADULT WOMAN for finally being able to do what she wants with her body after 13 years.
Some of ya'll act like you support mental health awareness but then turn around and label people "crazy". Okay. 🙄🤦♀️

We live in a world where edited fake photos are more acceptable than real unedited Photo's these comments only confirm that .. how sad.

Remember when Kim Kardashian posted a nude selfie & was praised for it but yet Britney Spears does it and she needs help? It's no wonder this poor girl has breakdowns. Why is she constantly held to a different standard? Let her do WTF she wants! #BritneySpears

Britney Spears can do whatever she wants with her own body and for those saying "Why does Kim Kardashian get to post nudes?"…men attacked her too. We're seeing a resurgence of men attacking & telling women what to do with their own bodies bc they feel embolden by the GOP's BS. pic.twitter.com/Gtbj4MYFCc

When Kim Kardashian poses nude it's ok? When Hilary Duff who posed nude for a cover shoot for a magazine it's ok but when Britney Spears dose the same thing you idiots say she's nuts & needs help? Talk about double standards. Women should be able to do WHATEVER without judgement!

I don’t think Britney Spears should upload lazy stuff like that from her house. Instead get a full glam team and make it an iconic professional pic people will remember like Kim Kardashian’s. She’s a legend, she should start moving like one. That’s my only issue. https://t.co/4hxUL4FGWT

I completely agree. People just can’t see the difference. The self proclaimed celebrity Kim Kardashian posed nude posed nude for publicity and notoriety while Britney Spears posed nude to express her freedom and independence. https://t.co/UghSx7pRue
