Octavia Spencer apologizes to Britney Spears and Sam Asghari for 'prenup' comment: 'Let's show them love'
"My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain."
After Britney Spears announced her engagement to Sam Asghari, fans flooded her comments with congratulatory remarks -- and messages about protecting her assets.
Even Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer wrote, "Make him sign a prenup." Well, now Spencer is apologizing for her remark.
On Wednesday, Spencer posted a beautiful picture of Britney and Sam and wrote on Instagram, "Y’all, a few days ago Sam and Britney announced their engagement and me being me I made a joke. My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain."
"I’ve reached out to this lovely couple privately to apologize and now want to restore just a smidge of happiness they were robbed of," she continued. "Britney’s fans have seen her through a lot of pain and she’s found happiness. We’re thrilled for her. So let’s show them love."
Asghari responded in the comments: "You are very kind to clarify but i have no hard feelings whatsoever. Jokes and misconceptions come with the territory."
We're not sure how Spears feels about Spencer's apology, since she's currently taking a break from her Instagram.
After her profile disappeared earlier this week, a tweet reading, "Don’t worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement ?? !!!! I’ll be back soon ???" was shared on Spears' Twitter account.
