Rachel Zegler is in hot water after seemingly making fun of Britney Spears' trauma and her ongoing feud with sister.

The 20-year-old performed a dramatic reading of a series of the pop star's tweets to Jamie Lynn Spears slamming her for her recent scathing television interviews.

"I’ve never been around you ever with a knife or would I ever even think to do such !!!" Zegler said in the video, quoting a statement from the "Toxic" singer posted on Friday, January 14. "The only knife I ever saw you with at home was cutting the biggest pieces of squash I ever saw in my life and it was way too big for me to cut."

However, fans were less than amused by the Disney's Snow White actress' "artistic" decision.

One user wrote: "wow you took someone’s trauma and made a high school theater kid monologue out of it while actively working with abusers! congrats! you’re a sh—ty person." Another added, "I’m sorry but if you’re still making fun of Britney Spears in 2022 you’re a piece of s–t. Grow up."

Other followers wondered why the post was even allowed to go up in the first place. "what happened to publicists?" An account commented on Twitter. "what happened to social media control? what happened to think before you post? y’all are STUPID"

One commenter wasn't surprised. Instead, they slammed the Shazam! Fury of the Gods star for her friendship with Ansel Elgort — her West Side Story costar who was publicly accused of rape in 2020. "can't expect much from someone who removed 'believe survivors' from their bio bc they were hanging out with people accused of sexual abuse..."

As OK! previously reported, Elgort was rarely seen in public for quite some time after an alleged victim came forward to accuse the Baby Driver actor of sexually assaulting her leaving her "sobbing in pain" when she was 17-years-old.

"I was distressed to see the social media posts about me that have been circulating in the past 24 hours," Elgort wrote in response to the allegations. "I cannot claim to understand Gabby’s feelings but her description of events is simply not what happened."

He later explained that while he did have a relationship with the young woman when he was 20-years-old, it was "brief, legal and entirely consensual."
