The Saturday Night Live episode of February 20 gave prominent people the chance to apologize for their latest controversial actions – with the help of Britney Spears , played by Chloe Fineman . The actress channels the pop star’s recent Instagram videos, in which she stares wide-eyed at the camera and occasionally takes to dancing, as she explains why she’s the one putting on this apology tour.
“I started this show Whoops, you did it again so people can apologize for the things they did wrong because after the #FreeBritney documentary came out I got hundreds of apologies per day, “she told the audience.” Speaking of which, I’d like to shout out to our sponsor, the Notes app. Are you looking to post a lame apology 20 years late? Walk through the movements with the Notes app. ”
The line is a not-so-subtle dig at Justin Timberlake , who recently apologized to his ex-girlfriend earlier this month after being called out in the New York Times documentary Coaching Britney Spears. The film chronicles the rise of the “Piece of Me” singer to fame and fall from the public pedestal, leading many fans to criticize the way Justin handled their breakup.
