Sydney Sweeney has responded to the intense backlash aimed at her mother for having a party where a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ top was spotted by fans

The Euphoria star’s family appeared to host a ‘hoedown-inspired’ 60th Birthday party on Saturday, where guests were spotted rocking Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ caps.

Social media users quickly slammed the family’s alleged political ties with the 24-year-old actor rushing to hit back at the critics.

She wrote: “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. Please stop making assumptions. Much love to everyone and Happy Birthday Mom!”

Those in the comments were still not having any of it, with one person writing: “It’s literally a political statement. Magats are gonna maga.

“You support a treasonous traitor! Guilty by association.”

Another wrote: “Then you should’ve selected other pictures to post that wouldn’t be left up to interpretation in this manner. Lesson learned for you, I ‘assume’.”

Elsewhere a third person joked: “If your family was wearing a Biden hat this wouldn’t be an issue.

“But no one has ever seen photographs of anyone wearing a Biden hat at a birthday party.”

A fourth user said: “You look very comfortable & happy being around people whether they’re friends, family, etc.

“You have to know MAGA represents hatred, division, confusion & disrespect, white nationalism, etc. Again, you posted the pics & people are naturally going to respond & be outraged.”

However, a handful of people supported the theme, writing: “Welcome to AMERICA! Where you can’t express anything right winged without being cancelled! Sad.”
