It may be hard to believe, but apparently there are some right-wing nutjobs who have a problem with the Statue of Liberty, one of the most American of all icons.
Breitbart News writer John Carney saw the cover of the new issue of Vogue and flat out had a fit, posting this snide remark on Twitter:
How is that attacking anyone? This moron was triggered by a photo of Jennifer Lawrence standing before the Statue of Liberty? Man, that’s just pathetic!
As you might expect, Carney got trolled hard on Twitter:
Just to be clear here — the Statue of Liberty is now a microaggression against conservatives?

🎵And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men online
Triggered by the Statue of Liberty🎵

You need a safe space from the Statue of Liberty?

If the photo of an iconic symbol of freedom feels like an affront to your sensibilities, maybe the problem isn't the photo. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Would you be less triggered if Lady Liberty were covered by some sort of … I dunno … head to toe garment that hid her from your view?

The Statue of Liberty is an attack on you, Hitler?

Oh, I see. Freedom and liberty for you and yours, but not for anyone else. Because that's the definition of freedom and liberty.

Here’s a suggestion for John Carney: Stay off the internet and away from all forms of media. Become a hermit and live in a basement. Chances are no one would miss you in the least.
