As a movement to replace statues of racist figures from history sweeps the globe, one US resident is calling for them to be replaced with a very different cultural icon.
The petition calls for Confederate statues in the state of Louisiana to be replaced with monuments to Britney Spears.
Started by Kassie Thibodeaux, it has already amassed thousands of signatures and it calls on the state government to "do the right thing: Replace Confederate statues with an actual Louisiana hero and influential human being, Britney Spears".
The petition offers examples of the singer's charitable works and describes her as an"inspiration to millions" for overcoming her very public mental breakdown.
"She's already earned her star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and now it's time for her home state to honour her with the tribute that she deserves," the petition states.

Elsewhere in the US, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has urged the Tennessee Historical Commission to remove two monuments in her hometown as she slammed the "despicable figures" in the state's history.
Swift urged that the Nathan Bedford Forrest statue be removed after the Edward Carmack one was torn down last week by protestors amidst the Black Lives Matter movement.
She wrote: "As a Tennessean, it makes me sick that there are monuments standing in our state that celebrate racist historical figures who did evil things. Edward Carmack and Nathan Bedford Forrest were DESPICABLE figures in our state history and should be treated as such ... Edward Carmack's statue was sitting in the state Capitol until it was torn down last week in the protests. The state of Tennessee has vowed to replace it ... Replacing his statue is a waste of state funds and a waste of an opportunity to do the right thing.
"Then we get to this monstrosity. Nathan Bedford Forrest's statue is still standing and July 13th is 'Nathan Bedford Forrest Day'. Due to social pressure, the state is trying to overrule this, and Tennesseans might no longer have to stomach it. Fingers crossed."
And while Swift agreed the removal of the statues wouldn't "fix centuries of systemic oppression", she called for the Capitol and Tennessee Historical Commission to help make a change.
She added in a string of Twitter posts: "Taking down statues isn't going to fix centuries of systemic oppression, violence and hatred that black people have had to endure but it might bring us one small step closer to making ALL Tennesseans and visitors to our state feel safe - not just the white ones ... We need to retroactively change the status of people who perpetuated hideous patterns of racism from 'heroes' to 'villains'.
"And villains don't deserve statues ... I'm asking the Capitol Commission and the Tennessee Historical Commission to please consider the implications of how hurtful it would be to continue fighting for these monuments ... When you fight to honour racists, you show black Tennesseans and all of their allies where you stand, and you continue this cycle of hurt. You can't change history, but you can change this."
