A DJ has accused Sydney Sweeney of racist behavior after controversial photos from the star’s mother’s birthday party were shared online.
DJ Bella Ferrada took to her Instagram Story to put the Euphoria star on the blast to share photos from the party. Ferrada called the snapshots “really problematic” in a since-expired story, according to celebrity blog Oh No They Didn’t.
“Yuck this confirms my thoughts on [Sydney Sweeney] especially after she pulled racist bullshit [boyfriend] Lalo when he was working at an awards show,” Ferrada wrote.
Although she promised to “save that tea for another day,” Ferrada didn’t keep people waiting long. Instead, she took to Sweeney’s Instagram post where she left a comment explaining her allegations.
“All I see are red hats and red flags,” she commented. “Girl, that explains why you were so scared when my Mexican boyfriend was trying to fix the lighting by you at the HCA Awards and you freaked out and your boyfriend came and chased him away when he was just doing his job and have no idea who you even are… why were you so scared?

The allegations are just a sample of the backlash Sweeney has received after posting photos of her mother’s birthday to Instagram over the weekend.
Fans took to the comments section to call him out as one of his photos featured a man wearing a Blue Lives Matter shirt. People notes that other photos from the event featured people wearing red hats that read “Make Sixty Great Again,” a parody of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” gear.
Sweeney responded to the criticism in a post shared on Twitter.
“You guys, this is crazy. An innocent celebration for my mother’s 60th birthday turned into a nonsensical political statement, which was not the intention. Please stop making jokes. guesses,” she tweeted.
Although she was called out by many, others rushed to Sweeney’s defense.
Sweeney is not the only one Euphoria star who faced controversy, however. Sophia Rose Wilson and Ziayla Pizarro have been accused of posting racist content on social media after some of their alleged posts resurfaced online earlier this year.
