The Smoking Gun is reporting that Britney Spears’ lawyers sent a strongly worded letter to a Florida radio station that used unauthorized paparazzi pictures of the singer in its promotional billboards. The ads, which were for MJ Kelli’s morning-radio program, feature images from Britney’s bald phase, and are about as funny as you’d expect from a “wacky DJ,” meaning that they’re completely obvious and two months old, joke-wise. We’re all for first-amendment rights, of course, but if it takes legal threats to silence our nation’s zinger-spewing knuckleheads, we’d be willing re-write the Patriot Act. Again.
