Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco pissed off a bunch of 'Muricans this Fourth of July weekend when she posted this picture of her dogs to her Instagram. At first glance you are probably like, "Aw, doggies in bandanas!" But look closer, people. Those doggies are sitting on the American flag. Traitors.
Are these dogs terrorists? Anti-American? Enemies of the state? Or are they merely just dogs who can't comprehend the symbolism of a nation's flag but know how to "sit" and "stay?" You can be the judge of that.
So a lot of people took issue with the picture, and they believe the she should never have shared it. (Although Cuoco didn't actually pose her dogs for the photo; they were being cared for by @the_pet_handler while she was out of town.) According to Fox News, one person wrote "Showing disrespect for the flag, it should never touch the ground, or let your pet stand on it!” while another said “Shame on you, Kaley. You lost a fan.”
Cuoco has since deleted the picture and issued an apology on her account.
I would like to comment on a photo I posted yesterday , that has caused lots of controversy. First off, please know, I have the utmost respect for my country. I am a proud American in every sense of the word. I understand the American flag stands for our freedom and represents American heroes , past and present.
Yesterday I made a mistake by posting the picture that was taken of my sweet dogs posing on an American flag. I sincerely apologize to anyone that has been offended by my previous post. This is no way reflects my feelings toward what the American flag represents. Living in the public eye, can be extremely difficult at times. Every mistake and every imperfection is amplified. I am not perfect. I am a proud American, today, tomorrow, always.
Look, she said "American" six times! She must really be a true patriot. And just to drive the point home, she also uploaded this picture of her and boyfriend Karl Cook clad head to toe in stars and stripes.
The dogs, however, have not yet publicly apologized. Shameful.
