Sydney Sweeney is an up-and-coming Hollywood actress with 49 acting credits already at the age of 24. However, her fans turned on the star of the HBO show “Euphoria” on Saturday after Sweeney shared photos of her mother’s birthday party on social media. Liberals attempted to cancel Sweeney because guests at the birthday party were wearing “Make America Great Again” inspired hats and a “blue lives matter” shirt.
Sweeney’s family – who are from Idaho – held a surprise birthday party for her mother, who turned 60. Best friends of the mother told her that they were taking her line dancing at a bar in town. However, there was a surprise birthday party at a barn.
A sign welcomed guests to “Lisa’s 60th Hoedown.”
Sweeney shared photos on Instagram of the party – which included line dancing, a mechanical bull, and ax-throwing.
In one of the photos, a man is seen wearing a “thin blue line” or “blue lives matter” t-shirt as he gleefully hugs Sweeney’s mother and grandmother.
Sweeney’s brother posted photos of some guests who donned red “MAGA” inspired hats that read: “Make Sixty Great Again.”

Then cancel culture took over on social media. On Saturday, “Sydney Sweeney” was trending on Twitter because fans of the celebrity were furious that guests at her mother’s birthday party were possibly conservative.
One person wrote on Twitter, “She’s a white woman from America, idk why the internet is so outraged when she is quite literally doing what white women from America do.”
Someone tweeted, “Idk why everyone’s surprised? All those times you’ve seen her and not known she was raised by Republicans?”
Others insinuated that the family was involved in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building or that they look like they use racial slurs. Some commentators called her family “trash” and “inbred.” Others demanded that the actress “delete” the photos. One Twitter user said that Sweeney deserved “lashings.”
The backlash from the Twitter reactions caused Sweeney to have to release a statement about the attire of people at her mother’s surprise birthday party.
Sweeney wrote on Saturday night, “You guys this is wild. An innocent celebration for my mom’s 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!”
