“Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney excitedly shared that she had given her mother a surprise for her 60th birthday and was quickly criticized for the custom “Make Sixty Great Again” hats worn by guests.
The 24-year-old actress was stunned to learn that certain claims were being made about her because of the clothes and accessories that guests at her party chose to wear, some of which were intentionally made for the event.
Sweeney shared on her Twitter a heartfelt message, which read: “You guys, this is wild. An innocent celebration for my mother’s milestone 60th birthday has turned into an absurd political statement.”
In images shared by her brother, guests at the party can be seen wearing hats apparently derived from former President Donald Trump’s infamous MAGA slogan, aka “Make America Great Again.”

The hats, which are often imitated, were not intended to cause such a stir, according to Sweeney, who wrote that it was “not meant to be” and to “please stop making assumptions”.
In addition, one photo shows a male guest wearing a “Blue Lives Matter” shirt, photographed next to Sweeney’s mother and grandmother as they gather around the cake.
The star’s mother was treated to a surprising hoedown, with all the guests decked out in cowboy clothes.
Sweeney planned the event, which included a bull ride and dancing.
The “Madame Web” actress is unfortunately no stranger to harsh comments.
She has previously criticized her appearance.
Sweeney is close to her mother, Lisa Sweeney, having previously shared a video on her Instagram of her crying and calling to tell her she had been nominated for an Emmy Award.
