Celebrities are showing their support for Britney Spears after watching the documentary Framing Britney Spears on Hulu.

While the "Free Britney" movement created by fans has been going on for years, the documentary was the first real acknowledgement of the claims that Spears was essentially being held hostage. The new documentary offers a look inside her life in the spotlight and the mistreatment she endured from the media, the paparazzi, and the public as a whole, as well as her court-mandated conservatorship headed by her father Jamie Spears.

After the documentary was released, Kacey Musgraves, Sarah Jessica Parker, Andy Cohen and other celebrities have taken to social media to express their concern and show their support for the "Toxic" singer.

Spears has asked for the removal of her father from the conservatorship, but the request has not been granted. The next court hearing is set for this Thursday, Feb. 11.
