Sydney Sweeney attacked over posting pics with family wearing MAGA-like hats
‘The Five’ discusses how the Left is demonizing ‘Euphoria’ actress Sydney Sweeney over family pics she posted of them wearing ‘MAGA-like’ hats and a Blue Lives Matter shirt.
Sydney Sweeney is speaking out after receiving backlash in August for her mother’s 60th birthday party, which had MAGA-like hats present for the celebration.
“Honestly I feel like nothing I say can help the conversation,” Sweeney, 25, shared with British GQ.
“It’s been turning into a wildfire, and nothing I can say will take it back to the correct track,” she added.
