A co-social star’s media post has caused a stir, but for a totally different season, only days after Barbie Ferreira’s Instagram announcement that she was quitting Euphoria.
The Euphoria star caused a stir on Instagram on August 27 after sharing photos from their mother Lisa’s Western-themed 60th birthday party.
She said, “No better way to celebrate my mum than a surprise hoedown,” as the post’s caption.
She posted a video of partygoers sporting red baseball caps and a photo of a male attendee wearing what many fans recognized as a Blue Lives Matter design.
In a subsequent Instagram picture, her brother Trent said that the caps actually read “Make Sixty Great Again,” a reference to the slogan used by former President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.
In Defense of Her Mother’s Controversial Birthday Party, Sydney Sweeney
Social media users criticized or defended Sydney’s family hours after she posted the photos and engaged in heated political debates.
Even after she published a letter pleading with her supporters to “stop forming assumptions” and refrain from politicizing an “innocent celebration,” they continued to attack her.
Later, the actress from White Lotus wrote, “You guys this is wild.
An innocent party for my mom’s milestone 60th birthday has transformed into an outrageous political statement, which was not the aim. Please stop making assumptions.”
In late July, Sydney Sweeney told the Hollywood Reporter about her financial troubles, making this kerfuffle over the images her second internet storm in a month.
I don’t make enough money to take off for six months,” she told the magazine. No one is there for me to lean on when I need money to make ends meet or a phone number to call for assistance.
Her statements were met with widespread outrage, and not just because she has a $3 million mansion and can afford to take a six-month hiatus from work despite the current economic climate.
Many people said the complaint was irrelevant. Those who were upset with Sweeney failed to take into account the fact that she was discussing her concerns about being able to afford parental leave.
She told the media outlet, “I’ve always wanted to be a young mom. I was concerned that if I didn’t have a job, my children wouldn’t be taken care of.

However, her tweet did little to assuage the concerns of those who had criticized her. Despite one Twitter user’s claim that “your dad was making a political statement with the blue lives matter shirt,”
The person in question proceeded to upload politically charged photos of him wearing the shirt.
The author Frederick Joseph raised similar concerns about Sweeney’s reply. “Assumptions?
Don’t try to pull a fast one on your followers, many of whom, depending on the nature of the show that made you famous, are probably young, progressive individuals.
The blue lives matter shirts and MAGA infants prove that your family is far to the right, he added.
Sweeney has talked about her family in interviews before, but she hasn’t said much about their political beliefs.
