"I was jst TOLD my @britneyspears interview tomm on@ampradio MUST b pre-recorded & submitted 4 approval by HER mgmt b4 it canair! F THAT!" Carsonwrote on Twitter.
Carsonsaid he didn't blame Britney. "I've known and supported her since she was 15.This has nothing to do w her. Just her ppl," he wrote.
Some Britney fans lashed out at Carson on Twitter. One quipped, "It's calledPR! Bow 2 the ... queen." Another accused him of being unprofessional."
