Britney Spears’ manager, Cade Hudson, has slammed Saturday Night Live (SNL) for their recent take on the pop star’s memoir.

In the latest episode of the sketch comedy series hosted by Timothée Chalamet, comedian Chloe Fineman dressed up as Britney and joked Michelle Williams wasn't the only one who auditioned to narrate her audiobook.

“I’m beyond touched that my book The Woman in Me hit number one on the New York Times bestseller list, to say the least,” Fineman said as she pretended to be the pop star.

“My audiobook is read by the amazing Michelle Williams, but she wasn’t the only one who wanted to read it.

"Here’s a peek at some of the other actors who auditioned to read The Woman in Me.”

A montage then played other notorious actors reading excerpts from the pop star's book, including Ice Spice (played by Punkie Johnson), The B-52s‘ Fred Schneider (Bowen Yang), Martin Scorsese (Chalamet), Neil deGrasse Tyson (Kenan Thompson), Steve-O (Mikey Day) and Natasha Lyonne (Fineman).

One person on X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote: “I don’t know why everything about Britney and her life has to be made into a joke, yet here we are…”

Another said: “Why does everything about Britney and her life have to be a joke for the media? We are tired of this.”

A third commented: “This is so cringe, making fun of her trauma. Do better.”

Spears’ manager has even chimed in his thoughts, calling the skit ‘pathetic’.

He wrote: “Wow. The writers of SNL are getting worse and worse. No wonder you all reached out to me to get Britney on the show… snl is on life support. You all are pathetic and this Chloe [Fineman] isn’t funny. Did you find her on Craigslist or something?”

Spears’ memoir was released on October 24, 2024, and details her life in the spotlight, her past relationships and her long-lasting conservatorship.

According to Fortune, the book sold a million copies within a week of its release, making it the second-fastest-selling debut behind Prince Harry’s Spare.
