Asgari called producers hours before FX’s follow-up documentary was set to premiere on Hulu
Sam Asghari is questioning the motives behind upcoming documentaries about the life of Britney Spears and the battle for guardianship.
Asgari began his statement by saying, “Obviously my opinion has grown in importance over the past few days.” “Previous docs left bad taste. I hope it’s respectable. I don’t blame CNN, BBC or Netflix (which [sic] got me through lockdown [emoji]) to broadcast them because as an actor I tell other people [sic] Stories too.”
“I question the producers who made them ‘just to shed light’ without any input or approval from the subject,” he continued. “Any credit for shedding light should go to #freebritney.”
