Fans have now reportedly become alarmed by Britney Spears’ most recent Instagram Reel showcasing her dancing with large knives.
In the video, the 41-year-old woman spun about in her living room holding two butcher knives as her dogs were just a few feet away.
She first used the caption “I started playing with knives in the kitchen today!!!” for her post.
Fans expressed their worry on Twitter when the singer’s comments on Instagram were disabled.
Some saw the video as evidence that Spears requires supervision and is not mentally capable of taking care of herself.
Spears modified the caption to read, “Don’t worry they are NOT real knives!!!” after the video went viral. Very soon it will be Halloween.
Look at this. The debate is over. Britney Spears is insane and can’t take care of herself. At this point we even have to ask if she could be a danger to others. For a year she’s been dancing incessantly in the exact same spot, and now she’s even waving knives around. https://t.co/8JyNnGyFhY

In contrast, the vocalist in the Reel knocks the knives together, creating the exact noise that sharp objects produce when they come into contact.
The knives’ reflection of the light demonstrates that they are not made of rubber, unlike the majority of imitation weapons offered for Halloween.
