  • Rachel Zegler has apologized on Twitter for reenacting one of Britney Spears' tweets.
  • Last week, Spears shared multiple posts slamming her sister Jamie Lynn for her upcoming memoir.
  • Zegler deleted a video where she read one of these tweets in the style of a monologue.

"West Side Story" star Rachel Zegler apologized on Twitter for sharing a video of herself doing a dramatic read of one of Britney Spears' tweets about her sister.

Spears is currently engaged in a feud with her younger sister about Jamie Lynn's upcoming memoir, "Things I Should Have Said," which touches on the sisters' fallout in 2020.

During an interview with ABC , it was revealed that Jamie Lynn writes about Britney once locking them in a room while brandishing a knife when they were kids.

In response to this, Britney wrote : "Jamie Lynn... congrats babe! You've stooped to a whole new level of LOW... I've never been around you ever with a knife or would I ever even think to do such!!! 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... So please please stop with these crazy lies for the Hollywood books!!!"

Zegler, who recently made her film debut in "West Side Story," received backlash from fans for sharing a video of her reading this statement in the style of an audition monologue. Zegler has since deleted the post and said she meant "no disrespect" to Britney and her fans.

"Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Britney and am rooting for her always," the 20-year-old actress wrote on Twitter. "While I meant no disrespect whatsoever, I should have thought about how this could be perceived, and I'm so sorry for upsetting or disappointing anyone."

She continued: "This is not a situation to be taken lightly, and we should all be lifting Britney up in this pivotal time. Thanks for hearing me out, and a big thank you to all who held me accountable."

Jamie Lynn Spears and Britney Spears.

Last week, Britney had made a series of Twitter posts slamming her sister for the memoir saying that the "Zoey 101" star "never had to work for anything."

In a statement posted to Instagram by Jamie Lynn last week, the former child actor says that it's "exhausting" that her conversations with Britney in private differ from what Britney says on social media.

"That being said, I hate to burst my sister's bubble, but my book is not about her," Jamie Lynn wrote. "There are no sides, and I don't want drama, but I'm speaking my truth to heal my traumas, so I can close this chapter and move forward, and I wish my sister could do the same."

Britney responded to this with a statement on Twitter saying she loves her sister "unconditionally" but still says Jamie Lynn is "making up" things about Britney in her memoir.

She wrote: "What Dad did to me, they don't even do that to criminals... so for you to sit back and act completely aloof to what has happened to me is honestly insane to me!!!"
