If you ask Madonna, Britney Spears shouldn’t have to stand alone in the midst of her ongoing conservatory drama.

The 62-year-old “Like a Prayer” singer took to her Instagram story Thursday July 8th to express her unconditional support for her co-performer from the 2003 hit “Me Against the Music”. Madonna’s post contained a photo of herself wearing a top that read “Britney Spears” in purple letters.

“Give this woman her life back,” added Madonna. ‚ÄúSlavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has done this to women for centuries. This is a violation of human rights! Britney, we’re coming to get you out of jail! “

On the same day, Britney herself shared her own strong message with fans when she posted on Instagram that haters “can kiss my ass”. This was an obvious indication of negative comments the 39-year-old star had received about the topless photo she posted the day before.
