Britney Spears' Pride Month message to 'friends AT the LGBTQ community' inspires dozens of jokes - as people say she makes it sound like 'it's the YMCA' or 'we all live in a retirement home'

Britney Spears has joined in the Pride celebrations, wishing her LGBTQ fans a happy month — but while fans are loving her sweet message, her video is going viral for a different reason.
On Tuesday, the 38-year-old pop star uploaded the Pride video to Instagram and Twitter, where it's been viewed over four million times combined.
But fans are fixated on the way Britney showed out to her fans 'at the LTBTQ community,' referring to the group of people as if they are a physical location.
