Last week, Jamie Lynn Spears was featured in an interview on Good Morning America to talk about her upcoming book Things I Should Have Said, and many felt it was inappropriate that Jamie is receiving media attention to tell her side of the story. Many felt that since Britney was the one who went through a conservatorship, she should be uplifted to tell her story as she was not allowed, but as of right now Jamie continues to be heard about her side of things. Now, podcast host Alexandra Cooper, who is known for the controversial “Call Her Daddy” podcast, is facing heat after doing a two-part series with Jamie, as it is giving her even more attention.
I hope people can truly see how trash @alexandracooper is and the whole @callherdaddy show!!! Having fucking Jamie Lynn Spears on the show and profiting off of Britney’s trauma, I literally can not 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️

Why people are upset
As most are aware, Britney Spears was recently freed from her decade-long conservatorship, which Britney holds Jamie accountable for as well, as she and their father profited from Spears’ money. Now, Jamie Spears is coming out to tell her “side” of the story, which many think is inappropriate as she was not the victim in the situation and therefore should not be treated as one or given a platform to discuss her view on things.
Call her daddy is quickly becoming the go-to platform for abusive manipulators to tell lies in order to rehab their imagine and not be challenged on them. First Colton Underwood, now Jamie Lynn Spears.

Many felt that this was a cash-grab for Cooper, the host of the podcast, and would garner money and attention, especially putting it into two episodes. Many also felt that this would even further promote Jamie’s new book, which Britney Spears recently spoke out about. Essentially, even after Spear’s conservatorship, many feel as if Jamie is still able to profit off of Britney. And, since Cooper gave Jamie the platform, many felt as if she was choosing money and more views on Britney’s behalf as well. Influencer Daniel Preda put it in simple words that many agreed with, noting that Cooper was giving “an abuser such a massive platform and benefit off this situation.”
Embarrassing. You’d think with that $60 million dollar Spotify deal you wouldn’t have to scrape the barrel and give an abuser such a massive platform and benefit off this situation. But hey, girls supporting girls right? Fitting.

Though Cooper recieved backlash ever since she posted the announcement of the episodes last night, she has yet to make a comment or redact her podcast episodes. The only thing Cooper has seemed to do was retweet an article defending Jamie Spears after they had watched the episode, in an article entitled “The Case For Jamie Lynn Spears After Watching Part 1 Of Her Call Her Daddy Interview.” In this article, the author writes that she feels “we have been incredibly hard on Jamie Lynn.”
This is not an accurate write up of that interview. Barstool is just trying to protect Alex because the whole world is coming for her now. That interview consisted of JL dodging all impetus to questions, gaslighting Britney’s experience, and playing the victim. This is a joke

Many did not agree with the article, especially since it came from Barstool Sports, which formerly owned the “Call Her Daddy” podcast. Overall, there were not many good reactions to the newest podcast episode with Jamie Lynn, with many feeling as if the podcast has strayed away from any feminist movement, which they used to try to maintain.
