Sydney Sweeney solves the problem
Sydney Sweeney recently tweeted about the social media outrage she faced after her mother’s 60th birthday party.
She wrote: The naive celebration of her mother’s 60th birthday has been turned into outrageous political remarks without intention.’
Sweeney further added ‘Stop guessing. Much love to all and Happy Birthday Mom!’
Her reaction came after uploading a series of photos to celebrate mother Lisa Sweeney’s 60th birthday.
She outlined the post with the caption, ‘There’s no better way to congratulate your mom than a surprise hoedown’.
Nevertheless, netizens quickly noticed that in one photo, an unidentified man appeared wearing a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ T-shirt.
In case you didn’t know, the aforementioned slogan refers to the pro-police response movement in the United States that started in response to ‘Black Lives Matter’.
Meanwhile, Euphoria Star’s younger brother Trent also shared several photos on his Instagram account. However, the post showed some customers wearing red baseball caps with the phrase ‘Make 60 Great Again’.
This phrase is a parody of the campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ launched by former US President Donald Trump in 2016. He later started the infamous ‘MAGA’ movement.
Guys, this is wild. A naive celebration of my mother’s 60th birthday has been turned into an outrageous political statement with no intent. Stop guessing. Love everyone a lot ♥️ And Happy Birthday Mom!

home? Don’t gaslight your fans (many are likely young progressives based on the content of the popular show). Your family is clearly far-right based on the blue life issue shirt and MAGA baby. pic.twitter.com/Gwcm4YZduz

Another netizen said, “If the family had been wearing Biden, it wouldn’t have been a problem.” But no one has ever seen a picture of someone wearing a Biden hat at a birthday party.’
Another user said, ‘You seem very comfortable and happy to be with people like friends and family’.
Sydney Sweeney is a very talented actress, but she can’t convince me that the girl on the left in this photo isn’t wearing a MAGA hat. pic.twitter.com/579UsaMSP3
