Agent of Victor Wembanyama on the Britney Spears incident
“The Britney Spears [incident] was a very good ‘Welcome [to] America’ moment. Small in a sense, but big in a sense. That was nothing. But there was so much noise for nothing and it turned into something … He was just walking. He didn’t do anything. But it shows you in America, everything is much bigger than anywhere else in the world,” he said.
Spears and her fans were furious after the incident. Her husband wanted Wembanyama punished, but he will not face charges as a result of the event. Many people may not think this is a big problem, but this incident got viral because Britney is a huge celebrity. Wembanyama surely got to know what it feels like to be in a controversy in the USA.
