Kim Kardashian is the latest celebrity to come out in support of Britney Spears after watching The New York Times documentary, “Framing Britney Spears.”
In her Instagram Stories on Friday, the reality star said she felt “empathy” for the pop singer after watching the doc, opening up about her own experiences with tabloids and the paparazzi.
“The way the media played a big role in her life the way it did can be very traumatizing and it can really break even the strongest person,” Kardashian wrote. “No matter how public someone’s life may seem, no one deserves to be treated with such cruelty or judgment for entertainment.”
Kardashian went on to reference a time in her life when she felt similarly mistreated by the media — when she was pregnant with her first child, North, and gained 60 pounds, suffered from preeclampsia and gave birth almost six weeks early.

The mogul said she “cried every single day … mainly from the pressures of being constantly compared to what society considered a healthy pregnant person should look like — as well as being compared to Shamu the Whale by the media.”
“I was shamed on a weekly basis with cover stories that made my insecurities so painful I couldn’t leave the house for months after,” she wrote. “It really broke me.”
Kardashian added that she took “these frustrating, embarrassing feelings and channel it into motivation,” and admitted that “to say this didn’t take a toll on me mentally would be a lie.”
The mother of four ended her post by saying she hopes “everyone involved in the business of shaming and bullying someone to the point of breaking them down might reconsider and instead try to show some understanding and compassion.”
“You just never fully know what someone is going through behind the scenes and I’ve learned through my own experiences that it’s always better to lead with kindness,” she concluded.
