Dogs and patriotism seemed like a perfect combo for Independence Day-- but for Kaley Cuoco, they whipped up an Instagram furor.
The 30-year-old Big Bang Theory star came under fire after posting a pic of two of her dogs sitting on the American flag, which predictably pissed off a plenty of patriotic Instagram users on the Fourth of July.
In the photo, which appears to have been taken by the actress’ dog-sitter, Cuoco's three dogs can be seen posing in stars-and-stripes bandanas. “Thank you @the_pet_handler for taking care of the squad while im out of town! 4 of July pups!!!!!!!” the caption reads.
Page Six reports that the responses ranged from forgiving (“Maybe she didn’t know that it was a real flag after all she is out of town.”) to straight-up angry (“Shame on you, Kaley. You lost a fan.”).
Since then, the offending post has been removed, more than likely in response to the backlash that she got over her pups' placement. Instead, there's now this much less controversial post.
Still somewhat annoying, but at least it's not patently offensive anymore. Definitely an improvement, Kaley.
