Britney Spears received a lot of support from her fans who were very vocal on social media to help end her conservatorship. The involuntary conservatorship was set up by Jamie Spears, her father, back in 2008. The conservatorship happened because of the singer’s mental health however, it has since been overturned in 2021.

Ever since then, Spears has been a woman working on her own terms. While her social media posts have raised a few eyebrows, fans are quite happy and supportive of Spears, for the most part. However, Zachary Levi seems to be one of those who have raised eyebrows at Spears’ content as he seemingly mocked it on his Instagram. The Shazam! actor reposted a satire article from Razzle Dangerously News on his Instagram story. The article’s headline read, “Millions Who Hashtagged ‘FreeBritney’ Starting to Change Their Opinions on Conservatorships.”

Well, that was enough for social media to explode. Twitter, as well as his Instagram comment section, is flooding with support for Spears. Along with the support for the singer, there is also quite a lot of hate, mockery, and trolling toward Levi. Fans are calling him out for downplaying and making fun of Spears’ issues. Check out what Twitter has to say about the ordeal.

At a time when good publicity is required, Levi’s social media posts might prove to be a drawback for Shazam 2. Will his personal views affect the entire team?

Levi will soon be seen playing Shazam/Billy Batson in the upcoming Shazam! Fury of the Gods once again. Since things have not been going quite well for the DCU with the ongoing changes, the fun, light-hearted superhero could be just what everyone needed. However, with the current Spears controversy and the previous controversy with Pfizer, Levi might be setting up Shazam 2 for failure.

It does not take long for fans to boycott an actor because of their personal choices (Read: Will Smith). If that happens with Shazam 2 owing to Levi’s social media posts, DCU sure is in for a treat! A win has become a necessity for the superhero universe and there are a lot of hopes on Shazam 2’s shoulders to deliver that win. But will the lead actor’s controversies end up proving to be a negative for the sequel? Only time will tell!

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will release on March 17, 2023.
