Pop star Britney Spears is facing criticism and it’s not for her music. At least one anti-gun group is taking Spears to task after her son was photographed playing with a toy gun in a California hotel earlier this month.
Jayden Spears, 6, was seen holding a plastic gun while the family was visiting the Four Seasons in Westlake Village, Calif. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America apparently does not approve of Britney’s parenting abilities, Guns.com reported.
Shannon Watts, the group’s founder, talked about Jayden holding the gun.
“As parents it is our responsibility to set a good example for our children, and as a celebrity parent it is especially important. Jayden was photographed not just playing with any toy gun,” Watts said. “It looks like an assault weapon. It is very disappointing to see Britney allowing her young son to play with such a violent toy.”
The photo shouldn’t come as a surprise at all, really. Britney is from Louisiana, a state that has fairly loose gun laws, and she’s also been seen with a (fake) firearm herself.
This is a picture from the video of her song “Criminal.”
