There’s a new petition that's live on change.org to replace the Confederate statues in New Orleans with statues of Louisiana-born pop star Britney Spears.
“Not only has Britney proven her talent, but she’s proven her strength of character by not only overcoming a highly publicized mental breakdown but by continuously working towards improving herself,” the petition reads. The petition was started by Kassie Thibodeaux of Rayne.
This petition also lists several contributions Britney has made to the state, such as in 2006 by helping raise $585,000 after Hurricane Katrina, and by helping flood victims in 2016 by donating nearly $250,000 to the relief.
So far the petition has garnered nearly 3,800 signatures in support of the pop star. Click HERE for a link to the petition.
