Britney’s gun shoot slammed

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

POP babe Britney Spears has been slammed for wav­ing a gun around in Hack­ney.

The Toxic singer was film­ing the video for new sin­gle Crim­i­nal in the vi­o­lence-plagued east Lon­don bor­ough.

The vid fea­tures her as a Bon­nie-and-Clyde style bank rob­ber. But the use of fake guns has been crit­i­cised by lo­cal politi­cians.

The 29-year-old singer had per­mis­sion to film in the area – but coun­cil­lors say she hadn’t told them weapons would be in­volved.

A coun­cil spokesman said: “We did not agree a replica gun could be used.”

And Labour MP for the area Dianne Ab­bot added: “It’s pop stars glam­or­is­ing gangs, which means that some young peo­ple get drawn in. Britney should know bet­ter.”

Lo­cal coun­cil­lor Ian Rath­bone called on the Amer­cian star to apol­o­gise and make a do­na­tion to Hack­ney youth char­i­ties.
