Sydney Sweeney’s surprise hoedown for her mother’s 60th birthday turned into an absolute nightmare for the family following some photos that revealed Sydney Sweeney’s political references and some points on racism/ fight against racism that were not taken lightly by the public. From wearing a “Make 60 great again” hat to a man in a blue shirt spelling “blue lives matter”, fans call the Euphoria actor hypocritical for her remarks of the event being an “innocent celebration”
Sydney Sweeney’s party and the unspoken politics
It was the 60th birthday of actor Sydney Sweeney’s mother for which the Euphoria actor decided to throw a surprise party. However, as soon as the photos of the party made their way onto Instagram, people started questioning the unspoken politics that the photos emitted.
In the photos, a man is seen wearing a blue shirt along with the words “Blue Lives Matter” inscribed on it. The “Blue Lives Matter” refers to the blue of the uniform that police officers in the USA wear during their duty. During the “Black Lives Matter” movement, several allegations were brought against police officers on the basis of discrimination against white and non-white folk.
To protect all police officers, the “Blue Lives Matter” campaign was carried out in response to and along with the “Black Lives Matter” slogan.
Taking to Twitter, the actress issued a statement regarding the party and blamed the people for reading between the lines and bringing out the unspoken politics that allegedly resides in her family.
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!

Based on this tweet, the fans started blasting the actress for being in such a woke show (Euphoria) and yet trying to squirm her way out of the situation. Several of the people even went as far as to call her a hypocrite as the event turned for the worse. Several people are also defending her by stating that the political views of a family are not necessarily followed by all the people i.e., her.
Assumptions? Don’t gaslight your fans (many are likely young progressive people based on the content of the show that gave you fame). Your family is obviously far-right based on the blue lives matter shirts and MAGA babies. pic.twitter.com/Gwcm4YZduz

If you post a photo of yourself wearing a Swastika is it wrong to assume you're a Nazi?
You're not responsible for your family's bigoted beliefs but it's ridiculous for you to claim people are "making assumptions" when the shirt literally is a political statement.

“Assumptions”? Your family are wearing MAGA hats and blue lives matter shirts, they’re racist. Time to face reality sweets, just because your white and famous doesn’t mean you get to have it all.

Sydney Sweeney is known for portraying the role of Cassie Howard on HBO’s Euphoria and as Emaline in Netflix’s Everything Sucks. It has become a lesson for her now that the big folks get under the eye of people even if they tend to do anything even remotely out of the ordinary. The event has created conflicts among the people and it seems that is escalating further and further.
Sydney Sweeney will be most recently seen in Dakota Johnson’s starrer Madame Web which is set for a release date on 6th October 2023.
