People have been left outraged by resurfaced footage which shows a reporter asking Britney Spears' for a kiss on the cheek.

Spears has had more than her fair share of uncomfortable interviews, such as the infamous 2003 meeting she had with Diane Sawyer when the ABC journalist made her cry.

However, another video has since come to light of Spears being asked for a kiss on the cheek.

The Britney Army has since run rampant in rage.

Prepare to cringe at just how awkward this interview gets:

Spears' interview with journalist Linda Nyberg in 2003 started off well, with the reporter asking the Toxic singer a series of insightful questions such as what the 'worst thing about being Britney Spears is' but also where Spears thinks she'll be 'in 10 years time'.

However, the interview later takes a bizarre turn when Nyberg is told she has time for one final question.

The journalist concludes the interview by asking Spears: "I don't dare ask you this but I have to. Would you dare give me a kiss on the cheek?"

Spears' appears extremely taken aback, with a wide-eyed expression, simply repeating the request back to Nyberg in apparent disbelief, while the reporter continues to ask for 'a tiny one' or 'small one'.

Thankfully, Nyberg finally resolves that Spears doesn't 'have to'.

Damn right she didn't have to, and Spears' fanbase have since pounced on the video to weigh in on the morality of the reporter asking such a question.

The clip - shared by TikTok user @britneysfreedom - has amassed tens of thousands of views, with one user resolving the footage is 'creepy'.

Another said: "I can't with people and their poor ideals and ridiculous lack of boundary...so disrespectful.....bleh."

A third added: "So unprofessional. completely unfit for the job."

However, one user argued: "She asked her before just doing so the interviewer did nothing wrong Britney wasn’t feeling it that day you can tell so she did nothing wrong the end."

Another wrote on a YouTube post of the extended clip: "I actually feel bad for interviewer, sometimes they’re force do some questions, and she look so uncomfortable asking those things."

"It's not the fault of the interviewer; she had to ask the question with the kiss and was obviously embarrassed but on the other hand it's also weird that a total stranger asks Britney for a kiss and expect her to do it just because she is famous. It's kinda cool that she didn't do it but embarrassing for the interviewer," a final said.

Whether or not Nyberg was made to ask the final question, one thing's for sure, the request for a kiss on the cheek definitely made things 'awkward'.
