When Britney posted to Instagram gushing about her engagement, writing:

I can’t f**king believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!

Octavia slid into the comments and responded:

Make him sign a prenup.

Octavia Spencer took to Instagram on Wednesday to share she reached out to the couple to personally apologize for her jokey joke.

Y’all, a few days ago Sam and Britney announced their engagement and me being me I made a joke. My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain.

I’ve reached out to this lovely couple privately to apologize and now want to restore just a smidge of happiness they were robbed of.

Britney’s fans have seen her through a lot of pain and she’s found happiness. We’re thrilled for her. So let’s show them love. 👇🏽 #nonegativity

Taking into account all of the ways Britney Spears has been taken advantage of throughout her life…do you think Octavia was out of line with her “joke?”
