Britney Spears has taken a different approach to her fellow celebs in tackling coronavirus, by pushing the message 'communion moves beyond walls' - which has prompted fans to turn her into a socialist icon...

With hundreds of celebrities donating to coronavirus relief efforts and using their platforms to encourage fans to stay home and practice social distancing, the people's pop star, Britney Spears, is once again pushing all the boundaries and wants people's wealth redistributed to help relieve the impact of the virus.

It's Britney, comrades!

Whether or not you're a politics geek (Britney doesn't usually shows this side of her either), her Instagram post outlined values of the likes of historical socialist figures such as Karl Marx, who believe that the wealth gap should be closed, and everyone should be living pretty much equally, regardless of what they've done.

The text-based post, simply captioned 'communion moves beyond walls' follows an Instagram Story by the singer where she asked fans to DM her if they needed help, read:

'During this time of isolation, we need connection now more than ever. Call your loved ones, write virtual love letters. Technologies like virtual communication, streaming and broadcasting are part of our community collaboration,' she continued.

'We will learn to kiss and hold each other through the waves of the web. We will feed each other, re-destribute wealth, strike. We will understand our own importance from the places we must stay. Communion moves beyond walls. We can still be together.'

The use of three red roses in the caption of the post have particularly caught fans attention as they're the symbol used by the Democratic Socialists of America, and has left everyone Britney about to become a socialist icon?

Whether it was her intention or not, people on social media have quickly made the 'Work B*tch' singer into a comrade, and there are some Godney-level memes. Karl Marx would be proud.

While the singer can't actually redistribute her own wealth as she's currently under conservatorship by her parents, she's leading the way for celebrities to use their platforms to help those most in need right now, that doesn't include, erm...clapping on a balcony.

Get it, Britney!
