Britney Spears updated the caption to one of her recent Instagram videos after fans expressed concern over the "Toxic" singer dancing with large kitchen knives.
The video was originally captioned, "I started playing in the kitchen with knives today 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️," but the 41-year-old later edited the post and added a second sentence:
"Don’t worry they are NOT real knives !!! Halloween is soon 🙈🙈🙈 !!!"
In the 26-second video, Spears, outfitted in an orange and white polka-dotted crop top and white bikini bottoms, double-fisted some butcher knives for her usual at-home choreography, this time to “Principles of Lust: Sadeness/Find Love/Sadeness (Reprise)” by Enigma.
You can watch, below.
While Spears did attempt to assuage fans' fears with the updated caption, several weren't buying it.

@Complex this is unsettling as hell— \ud83c\udf0d (@\ud83c\udf0d) 1695769940
On the second slide of another dance video posted yesterday, Spears sported a bandage on her wrist and had a noticeable gash on her thigh... 🤔
Goodness... please be safe!
