Euphoria Star Sydney Sweeney has spoken out after photos of her mother’s birthday party emerged showing someone wearing a Blue Lives Matter shirt.

The actor posted a set of photos from his mom’s cowboy-themed 60th birthday party on Saturday (August 27) to his Instagram page with the caption: “No better way to celebrate my mom than a surprise.”

But fans were quick to spot one of the partygoers wearing what looked like a thin blue line flag shirt. The flag is synonymous with the “Blue Lives Matter” movement, which arose in response to Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests demanding an end to police brutality against black people.

Blue Lives Matter supporters believe attacking police officers should be considered a hate crime. According to Indiana University law professor India Thusi, “‘Blue Lives Matter’ has become the rallying cry of those offended by the suggestion that we hold police officers accountable for killing unarmed black people.”

It was also suggested that various red caps seen in the background of Sydney Sweeney’s photos were reminiscent of the MAGA caps worn by Trump supporters, although it is unclear if the caps were actually labeled MAGA.

The images sparked intense discussion, with users commenting “this is awkward” and “all red hats”.

Sydney Sweeney addressed the comments in a tweet the same day, says: “This is wild. An innocent celebration of my mother’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!”

The actor was accused of “gassing” his fans with the statement. One user cited an Instagram post by her beau, Trent Sweeney, who posed with a child wearing a MAGA hat.

“You’re not the one wearing the shirt, so I’m going to make you a little serious about it,” said one. “But the absurd political statement was the shirt itself. Of course people will have something to say about that. Please accept and understand that.”

Another pointed out that MAGA and the blue lives matter movement are “expressive political statements”, and said that calling the backlash an assumption was missing the point.

It comes after Sydney Sweeney’s Euphoria Co-star Hunter Schafer found himself in hot water for commenting and liking a “trans medical” post on Instagram that blamed non-binary people for politicians aiming to reduce access to gender-affirming health care.

While Schafer has not responded to the comments urging her to explain why she liked the post, others have taken the opportunity to explain why transmedicinalism is an exclusionary ideology.

Trans medics are non-binary transgender people who believe that being transgender is inherently linked to gender dysphoria and, as a result, treat it as some kind of medical disorder that needs gender-affirming healthcare to address.

People who identify with transmedicinalism sometimes argue that non-binary labels are only the result of “transtrenders” posing as trans for influence in the LGBTQ+ community.

Popular Twitter user Erin Reed explained in a thread that the issue of trans medicalism is “far more important than terminating a young trans woman.

“I want to be very clear – transmedicinalism does not save us. In fact, it is the trans medical leaders who are pushing the hardest right now for anti-trans laws,” Reed continued.

PinkNews contacted Sydney Sweeney’s representative for comment.
