Britney Spears Cried In A Jack In The Box Drive-Thru And Is Furious A Worker Told Her It’s Gonna Be OK

Britney Spears says she went to Jack In The Box for the first time in her life this weekend, but unfortunately, the experience was not as positive as she was hoping. She was left “offended” and quite angry at an employee at the drive thru window who noticed she had been crying and told her it was going to be okay.

The beloved pop star took to her Instagram, which she recently reactivated, to tell the story and talk about what happened. She was driving around and crying some in her car when she realized she hadn’t eaten all day. She noticed a Jack In The Box sign with pictures of the food and decided to stop. She ordered a double cheeseburger and a shake but was left very angry after the “big man at the fucking window” offered her “pity” and told her it was going to be okay while he gave her the order. Here’s a portion of the story from her social media

Normally I forget to eat … I wait way too long and I'm too sensitive so if anything goes wrong at the house it's like the world has ended. So l got in my car yesterday and I cried ... I cried so damn hard… I saw Jack in The Box ... I've never ate there a day in my fucking life ... I was like HOLY SHIT and when I saw that big sign of pictures of the food. Normally hate looking at food but it's TIMING !!! Holy hog heavens I got a cookies and cream milk shake with a double cheeseburger. Well …………… I had been crying in the car ... but nobody could tell, only me ... my face still looked normal … I was fine, but then there he was … this big man at the fucking window… he gave me PITY !!! IT’S GONNA BE OK !!! …………… WTF DID HE JUST SAY ??? He doesn't KNOW ME and I sure as hell didn't know his ass ... so why did he say that ??? It's all gonna be ok !!! I was offended. Fuck you stupid man at Jack in The Box. You don’t know me … you’re not my blood so go fuck yourself !!!

The stranger’s words clearly did not go over well with Britney Spears, but the majority of the top responses on the post were from fans expressing confusion and/ or defending the fast food worker. One comment saying we need more men like that with “kind” hearts had more than 17,000 likes. Another saying the interaction sounded like “one human concerned for another” had more than a thousand likes. Many others expressed confusion about why the interaction was taken so negatively.

Outside of social media, it has been a whirlwind year for Spears. The icon was finally released from her conservatorship and given control of her life back after more than a decade under the control of her father. She quickly got married to boyfriend Sam Asghari and later released a hit song with pop legend Elton John. High profile feuds with her parents, her sister, her ex-husband and her kids, however, have played out on social media, and her no filter takes on her feelings about those estrangements, as well as her perspectives on everyday life, have left some fans wondering if she needs some support.

It’s unclear how much we might see from Britney Spears musically moving forward. The pop star is still enormously popular, as we saw with the Elton John song, but for now, she seems content to focus on her personal life and her new marriage, as well as experience all the things she was unable to during her conservatorship like using an ATM, driving and having a glass of wine. Hopefully it brings her happiness, and hopefully she’s open to trying Jack In The Box again, which is delicious.
