Britney Spears has slammed her online trolls, calling them “bullies”.

The 38-year-old pop star, who boasts a staggering 23,6 million followers on Instagram, said she’d had enough of the “mean comments” about her on the social media platform, saying they “hurt [her] feelings”.

She posted an image which read, “Nobody watches you harder than the people that can't stand you”, making it clear she reads what fans write about her.

Referring to a few swimsuit selfies she recently posted, she wrote, “I’ve read a lot of things online of people criticising my posts . . .  saying I post the same 15 pictures with the same red background and wearing the same white bathing suit.

“For me I get really excited about my posts and I like to share them with you all! I've never owned a white bathing suit before and I simply liked the red background!

“Reading all of the mean comments really hurts my feelings.

“I wanted to share because you really shouldn’t be saying all of these mean things to someone you don't even know . . . this goes for bullying anyone really!”

Clearly the Toxic singer is going through something as the day before she uploaded a similar post that contained a message about speaking your mind.

She certainly has endured a tough few months, which have seen her ex, Kevin Federline (41), gain increasing custody of their two sons, Sean (14) and Jayden (13), and her youngest going on an Instagram Live rant where he criticised his grandfather, Jamie Spears, and said his famous mom may want to “quit” music forever.
