Chris Crocker: Britney needs to get off stage
By Travis Mayfield
In September of 2007 the tabloid media was reaching a zenith in its obsession with Britney Spears.
As questions swirled regarding her fitness to be a mother and her personal stability, a teenager became the star's unlikely defender and made international news by telling the world to “leave Britney alone!”
Chris Crocker’s shrieking and tearful Youtube video went viral almost instantly. It spawned internet parodies and jokes on late night television.
Four years later times (and Crocker) have changed, but Britney Spears is still trying for yet another comeback. Sunday night saw her take to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.
This time however the message is quite different with Crocker demanding instead, “Britney needs to get off stage!”
