Framing Britney Spears: Fans In Shock Over Justin Timberlake's 'Disgusting' Virginity Comments
The one-off documentary explored the public obsession with Britney Spears, who was thrust into the spotlight as a child and was an international superstar as a teenager.
But it was when her ill-fated relationship with Justin Timberlake that left fans upset, with viewers left 'disgusted' and 'appalled' by Justin's casual remarks about taking his girlfriend's virginity.
You can watch a clip here:
In a radio interview with Star and Buc Wild from 2002, the documentary showed how Justin was asked whether he had "f***ed" Britney (their words, not ours), to which Justin laughingly replied: "Okay, yeah, I did it."
His lewd comments come after one talking head described Justin's video to his hit Cry Me A River as "weaponising the narrative against Britney", and making "the classic male revenge fantasy."
Britney fans were not happy with Justin's comments, with many taking to Twitter to deride the former NSYNC singer for talking about something that's supposedly private.
"Justin leaked that Britney wasn't a virgin. Trash!" one irate fan wrote.
"Justin said he f****ed her and he became the man of the moment while she became the sl*t who lied about being a virgin till marriage," another wrote.

"Watching #FramingBritneySpears and wow, the fixation on her body, whether she got breast implants, and whether she's a virgin, what the hell were we doing back then‽" a third asked. Responding to Justin's remarks, one viewer tweeted: "I've never liked Justin Timberlake and #FramingBritneySpears does a good reason of explaining why.
"I liked cry me a river as a song so much I didn't even realise what Justin did to Britney with that video...definitely nasty work," another wrote.
"Watching this Britney Spears doc... Can you imagine an interviewer asking a woman if she's a virgin today?! Disgusting," another added."This is so heartbreaking. So disgusting how she was treated. I saw all this happen and I feel for Britney. That's why I love her so much and want the best for her," wrote a third.
The one-off programme explored he court-mandated conservatorship the 39-year-old has been under since 2008 - controlled by her dad, Jamie.
The arrangement means Jamie has the legal right to oversee and make decisions regarding her finances, health, business deals, and personal life - and has been the source of much controversy among fans.
Framing Britney Spears is available to watch in the US on Hulu. A UK airdate is still to be confirmed.
