Christina Aguilera unfollowed Britney Spears on Instagram after she was body-shamed by Spears in a post on Monday.

Spears shared a picture quote by Rodney Dangerfield that reads, “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.” In the caption, she wrote in part: “I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children … my dancers … I mean if I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small 💃💃💃”

Spears received massive backlash because of this body-shaming post, which is still on her page.

After all the critics, Spears explained that she didn’t mean to body-shame anyone in a separate Instagram post. “By no means was I being critical of Christina’s beautiful body, it is what it is !!!” she wrote. “To be honest, I’m not trying to be critical of anybody. What I posted is a projection of the insecurities I deal with all the time as a result of how my parents and the media have treated me … I would never intentionally body shame anybody because I know what it feels like …”

After unfollowing her on Instagram, Aguilera has not publicly responded to Spears’ body-shaming comments.
