Britney Spears Under the Gun For Heist Video

by at .

Britney Spears' armed robbery-themed video for "Criminal" in Stoke Newington, England, is under fire from the London borough constituency's government.

At issue? The gun-toting video shoot's lawlessness and weapon-wielding.

In the video, Spears and boyfriend Jason Trawick portray two hoodlums who rob a store at gunpoint, then make a break for it, fleeing in ski masks with duffel bags.

In the wake of the massive riots that shook London earlier in the year, representatives want an apology from the pop star, and even a charitable donation.

"I think that she should apologize and make a sizeable donation to a Hackney charity that deals with young people" Councillor Ian Rathbone said of Spears.

The Council said in a statement, "In this case we did not agree that a replica gun could be used at Stoke Newington Town Hall and we are disappointed."

"We will be raising this matter with the production company."

First of all, it's fictional and pretty harmless. Second, are they surprised? The song's first verse includes the lyric, "He's a sucker with a gun, gun, gun."

Amazingly, no such complains have been lodged regarding her recent tour, which is more strip club/VIP champagne room scene than concert. Just saying:
