Naturally, with Spears and her conservatorship back in the headlines, many fans have reached out to Crocker to find out what the former viral star thinks, but in an eloquent statement Crocker explained that this isn't about them.

Posting on Instagram, Crocker said: "I've been getting a lot of people reaching out to me today, wanting my thoughts on everything, and et cetera.

"I never know how to speak on anything because I don't want it to be about me.

"This is about Britney, this is about her being able to be free, and this is about her being able to finally be heard, and that is what is important: Not what I have to say, what Britney has to say.

"And I hope that she gets that freedom and that happiness. That's what we all want for her."

Crocker, 33, posted an emotional clip urging people to 'leave Britney alone' back in 2007 - years before the 'Free Britney movement' kicked off.

Crocker was subject to vile abuse, and even death threats, after the clip was widely shared online.

Speaking about the clip in February this year following the release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, Crocker said: "Me saying Leave Britney Alone was never really the issue.

"Michael Moore said it and no one batted an eyelash.

"Maybe people reaching out to tell me, 'Chris, you were right' would feel good, if I knew that people could unpack that the reason no one took me serious was because I was a gender-bending teenager and the reaction to me was transphobic.

"When I said it, I had to fear for my life. Death threats were sent to my grandmother's house. I was already living in the south as a gender-bending teenager with no money or ways of feeling protected.

"The hate was also directed towards me by other LGBT people. Not just verbal but physical attacks were made towards me at gay bars and out in the streets.

"(By LGBT people who were embarrassed of me because of the way the media made fun of me. Which made them feel I gave them a bad name.)

"This was during a pre-Drag Race time, before everyone and their mom was saying 'Yass queen!'.

"It was a time of only embracing the heteronormative people in media.

"I hope not only Britney gets the freedom she deserves but that Femme queer people are not tortured in the media when showcasing humanity."
