“The moment we’ve all been waiting for last week: The Super Bowl,” Spears begins in her Instagram post. “I was so excited, but honestly, I was rooting for Kansas City, but I was also rooting for the other team. So, it was a little confusing for me. I love sharing.”

Does Spears’ conservatorship censor her Instagram account?

According to her digital marketing representative, Casey Petrey, Spears creates her posts for Instagram. However, her social media team helps edit the videos and material she shares. Petrey does not believe that Britney Spears is referring to the documentary in her posts.

“Britney is not asking for help or leaving secret messages in her social media accounts,” Petrey explained on Instagram

The conservatorship controls her finances and significant personal and professional life decisions for her. However, there is no proof that her Instagram account is censored. Although, the #freebritney movement might believe otherwise.

“My work on Britney’s social media does not involve her conservatorship in any way,” Petrey added.
