Asghari on Sunday reprimanded Donald Trump Jr. for using Spears’ recent knife-dancing video as political fodder.
“It’s not okay to be a bully,” Asghari wrote on his Instagram story while tagging the ex-president’s eldest son.
Spears shared a video of herself dancing with what appeared to be (and sounded like) knives, prompting more mental health concerns for the “Toxic” singer and a wellness check by police. (Spears said the knives were props.)
Trump turned the uncomfortable footage into a swipe at the current presidential administration on Instagram. He shared a side-by-side comparison of a professional photo of Spears from several years ago with the caption, “America under Trump” and a screengrab of the knife clip with the caption “America under Biden.” “Yup,” he captioned the meme.
Asghari took umbrage and made it known with a succinct message aimed at Trump.
Asghari, a model and fitness trainer, filed for divorce from Spears in August, a little more than a year after they married. The couple reportedly began dating in 2017.
“After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together,” he wrote.
