(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Democrats on Twitter threw a temper tantrum after discovering that rising Hollywood star Sydney Sweeney enjoys spending time with MAGA Republicans, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Sweeney, who stars in a teenage drama TV show called Euphoria, attended her mother’s 60th birthday party earlier this week, from which photos emerged of some of her friends and family wearing right-wing-oriented paraphernalia.
One person present had a t-shirt with a “back the blue” flag on it; others had baseball caps which read: “Make 60 Great Again”.
Enraged that the actress did not immediately chastise her family and chose to remain at the party, leftists took to Twitter to bash her.
this sydney sweeney business literally shows that white people are not holding their family members accountable at home. your activism is performative. because if not at home then where else? if not the white people in your lives closest to you then who else?

Others insinuated that Sweeney’s family attended the J6 rally in Washington, D.C.
“WHERE WAS SYDNEY SWEENEY’S FAMILY MEMBERS ON THE NIGHT OF JANUARY 6TH 2021,” another Twitter user wrote.

It is of course notable when anyone in the perennially leftist Hollywood elite says anything remotely conservative. In the past, such figures found their careers ruined. Yet in recent years things seem to be changing for the better.
However, just last month, famous actor Shia LaBeouf told Catholic Bishop Robert Barron that converting to Catholicism stopped him from committing suicide–a point that might perhaps be considered on a civilizational scale.
“I had a gun on the table,” LeBeouf said of himself before his conversion, when he thought that art could give his life meaning. “I was outta here.”
