On a day when Americans have typically attended parades, had cookouts with their families, watched fireworks, and celebrated our country, some of our compatriots have decided to be party poopers and complain on social media instead.
A number of high-profile celebrities have effectively ‘canceled’ the 4th of July, including superstars Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian.
Katy Perry referenced her hit song “Firework” saying it was a “10” but that women in the United States have “less rights than a sparkler”, likely referencing the reversal of Roe v Wade.
“Baby you’re a firework” is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian shared a meme on their Instagram stories saying ‘4th of July has been cancelled due to a shortage of independence. Sincerely, Women.’
NPR, continuing its woke trend, broke a 33-year tradition of reading the Declaration of Independence on the 4th.
Unfortunately many Americans feel the same way. According to a Gallup poll, only 38% say they’re ‘extremely proud’ to be American.
The Daily Mail Reports–
Only 38% of United States citizens say they’re ‘extremely proud’ to be American this Fourth of July.
A new Gallup survey revealed a record-low level of extreme national pride as the U.S. battles rising inflation, increased mass shootings and differing opinions about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
American patriotism has been trending downward since 2015 and elected leaders are aware of it.
Officials in Orlando, Fla., seemingly mocked the anti-American sentiment in a recent promotion for their Independence Day festivities, saying people ‘probably don’t want to celebrate our nation right now’ because there’s ‘so much division, hate and unrest.’
Similarly, woke NPR broke its 33-year-old tradition of reading the Declaration of Independence to its listeners on July 4 and instead decided to ‘examine what equality means and has meant in this document.’
