Actress Kaley Cuoco earned a hearty internet thrashing for an Instagram post on Independence Day.
The controversial picture, featuring her dogs sitting on an American flag, was since deleted but not before a firestorm erupted on social media calling out the “Big Bang Theory” star.

The photo featured Cuoco’s three dogs, each sporting stars-and-stripes bandanas, and the caption: “Thank you @the_pet_handler for taking care of the squad while im out of town! 4th of July pups!!!!!!!” Two of the dogs were sitting on an American flag placed on the ground.
The backlash on social media slammed the star for being disrespectful.

Cuoco eventually deleted the post and offered an apology.
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. 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. ?
