The stars of ”Euphoria” recently went through it.
Days after Barbie Ferreira announced her exit from the hit HBO show, co-star Sydney Sweeney is at the center of controversy after sharing photos from the 60th on Saturday, the “White Lotus” actor shared videos and photos from the hoedown-themed celebration.
”there’s no better way to celebrate my mom than a surprise hoedown,” Sweeney wrote on Instagram.
After being relegated to the background in season 2, Barbie Ferreira is now leaving ‘Euphoria’
Barbie Ferreira has offered ”Euphoria“ and her character Kat Hernandez a ”very tearful goodbye” after two seasons of the successful HBO series.
While in some photos Sweeney is riding a mechanical bull and dancing with her loved ones in a barn, eagle-eyed fans have refined the last picture in their compilation. In this picture, Sweeney posed next to a man wearing a shirt with the blue Lives Matter logo – an American flag with a blue line, which is associated with the support of police and law enforcement.
Other sleuths who visited Sweeney’s brother Trent’s Instagram account noticed that partygoers were wearing hats similar to former President Trump’s red “Make America Great Again” caps.
”By the way, the hats say ’Make Sixty Great Again,’” Trent Sweeney wrote in his caption, which has been edited.
On the actor’s original post, fans called Sweeney about the clothes of her family members and questioned her political beliefs.
“QUEEN, NOT THE BLUE LIVES MATTER SHIRT,” one user replied.
“Hmm, where were you on January 6th?”, commented another, referring to the attack on the US Capitol in 2021.
After the outcry on social media, Sweeney addressed the ”wild” criticism on Twitter.
”An innocent celebration of my mother’s 60th birthday has become an absurd political statement, which was not the intention,” she wrote on Saturday. “Please stop making assumptions.”
The skepticism of the fans continued, but the actor found support from conservative personalities, including the expert Tomi Lahren.
”Never bow down or apologize to the mob,” Lahren tweeted after Sweeney’s Twitter statement.
In another tweet, Lahren further defended Sweeney’s pictures.
“OMG sydney_sweeney had the audacity to throw a birthday party for her mother, and her family had the audacity to act like maybe they were conservatives and/or supported law enforcement?! Oh the horror! GTFOH, vulture,“ she wrote.
Conservative media personality John Ziegler also got involved in the controversy.
“In case you’re wondering what sparked this crazy Twitter reaction is that it’s apparently POSSIBLE that some of your family members are Trump supporters,” he tweeted.
Conservative newspaper Citizen Free Press, Newsmax columnist Christine Flowers, rebellious news journalist Katie Daviscourt and actor Nick Searcy have also expressed their support for Sweeney.
’It hasn’t been great for a long time’: Sydney Sweeney on the perils of Hollywood
Now the young actress is shooting Marvel’s action movie “Madame Web” from the Spider-Man universe and has put aside her early struggles and self-doubt.
Sweeney, who is best known for her work as Cassie in “Euphoria,” is nominated for two Emmy Awards and will star in the upcoming film “Madame Web.”
She recently spoke to the Times about how her acting career “hasn’t been great for a very long time.”
“I had no connections. I didn’t come from money. And when you’re 16 and you don’t really like yourself and you’re trying to figure out what the hell is going on in your body and your makeup and your hormones, and people are telling you that you’re not good enough — that weight is so heavy,“ she said. “But I had parents who, no matter what, believed in me.”
