Less than two days after uploading the now-infamous photo of her adorable dogs sitting on an American flag, Kaley Cuoco has apologized. In an Instagram post shared Tuesday night, Cuoco issued a formal response to the “controversy” that has quickly unfolded over the past 36 hours.
Beside a photo of a red, white and blue heart, the actress and proud US citizen wrote:
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.
