Actress Kaley Cuoco, who stars on the hit CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” offered an apology after a photo she posted on Instagram, showing her dogs sitting on the American flag, sparked a ton of backlash online.
Cuoco removed the photo from her Instagram account and posted a message on the social media site saying: “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.”
She admitted that posting the photo was a mistake, and added: “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.”
