Macy Gray is facing criticism over her call for a new American flag.
On Thursday, the Grammy-winning singer shared an op-ed on MarketWatch that said the current flag serves as a “replacement” to the Confederate flag, which she called “a symbol of opposition to the abolishment of slavery.”
She continued, calling the flag “tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect” and claiming that “it no longer represents democracy and freedom.”
Gray called into question the symbolism of the colors on the current American flag and the number of stars, suggesting that 62 years after it was designed, it’s time to “reset” the flag.
It seems many did not take kindly to the “I Try” singer’s idea, and shared their thoughts online.
