Kaley Cuoco has apologized “disrespecting” the American flag on the Fourth of July.
Over the holiday weekend, the “Big Bang Theory” actress posted a photo of her three dogs sitting on an American flag, and her followers were outraged.
She’s now said sorry on Instagram, and added that she has the “utmost respect” for the country.
“I would like to comment on a photo I posted yesterday that has caused lots of controversy,” Cuoco wrote. “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.”
