Sydney Sweeney responds to backlash over assumed ‘MAGA-inspired’ hoedown

Sydney Sweeney is dismissing the criticism she and brother Trent received after sharing several snaps from their mother’s surprise birthday hoedown Friday night, as followers expressed disappointment in what they assumed were signs of her family’s conservatism.

“You guys this is wild. An innocent celebration for my moms milestone 60th birthday has turned into an absurd political statement, which was not the intention,” the “Euphoria” actress, 24, tweeted Saturday. “Please stop making assumptions. Much love to everyone ❤️ and Happy Birthday Mom!

The snaps in question show several party-goers wearing red MAGA-inspired hats that read, “Make Sixty Great Again,” which Trent clarified on his own Instagram account.

“Trump era is over baby boy 😂😂,” wrote one follower within his comment section, with another adding, “You set your sister up🗿.”

Within Sydney’s snaps, a man is also seen wearing what appears to be a “Blue Lives Matter” shirt, symbolized with a black and white flag with a blue stripe down the middle.

“Nice blue lives matter flag shirt🤢 🤮,” another sarcastic critic offered, with one more adding, “Damn is this a Maga rally??”

Fans also took the siblings to task through Twitter, with one posting, “Kinda funny how Sydney Sweeney carefully curated her IG post so that none of the MAGA-inspired hats were seen and then her dimwitted brother’s post blew it all up 🤡🤠.”

Aside from causing a stir online, the birthday hoedown appeared to be a good time for all in attendance. Activities included line-dancing, jean jacket embroidery and mechanical bull riding.
