The actress’ mother, Lisa Sweeney, turned 60 this year, and to celebrate her mother’s birthday, the star threw her a surprise hoedown party. The event went as planned, and the actress posted several pictures and videos from the party on her Instagram, but fans were quick to notice certain problematic things in the photos. Some of the guests wore hats that said, “Make America 60 Again”. These hats resembled the slogan promoted by Donald Trump, “Make America Great Again”.

Blue Lives Matter was a counter-movement to Black Lives Matter and is considered to be highly racist.
