Sydney Sweeney is in hot water, after sharing pictures of her mother’s western-themed 60th birthday party.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Sydney Sweeney addresses the issue
Sydney Sweeney recently took to Twitter to address the social media outrage she faced after her mother’s 60th birthday party.
She wrote, ‘You guys this is wild. An innocent celebration for my mother’s 60th birthday turned into an absurd political statement, which was not the intention.’
Sweeney went on to write, ‘Please stop making assumptions. Much love to all and Happy Birthday Mom!’
Her response came after she uploaded a series of photos in celebration of her mother Lisa Sweeney’s 60th birthday party.
She captioned the post with a caption that read, “No better way to celebrate my mom than a surprise hoedown.”
Despite this, netizens were quick to notice that in one of the images, an unidentifiable man appeared wearing a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ shirt.
If you didn’t know, the slogan mentioned above refers to a counter-movement in favor of the police in the United States that was launched in response to ‘Black Lives Matter’.
Meanwhile, the Euphoria star’s brother Trent also shared several pictures of the event on his Instagram handle. However, at the venue, some guests were seen sporting red baseball caps that had the words, ‘Make Sixty Great Again’ printed on them.
The phrase is a parody of the campaign slogan, ‘Make America Great Again’ started by former US President Donald Trump in 2016. He started his infamous ‘MAGA’ movement subsequently.
You guys this is wild. An innocent celebration for my mother’s 60th birthday milestone turned into an absurd political statement, which was not the intention. Please stop making assumptions. Much love to all ♥️ and Happy Birthday Mom!

Assumptions? Don’t turn on your fans (many are probably young progressives based on the content of the show that made you famous). Your family is obviously far right based on the blue life issue shirts and MAGA babies. pic.twitter.com/Gwcm4YZduz

Additionally, another person mentioned, ‘If your family was wearing Biden this wouldn’t be an issue. But no one has ever seen photos of someone wearing a Biden hat at a birthday party.’
A different user told them, ‘You seem very comfortable and happy to be around people whether they are friends, family, etc.’
Sydney Sweeney is a very talented actor, but you can’t convince me that the girl on the left in this photo isn’t wearing a MAGA hat pic.twitter.com/579UsaMSP3
