The actress wrote on Instagram:
The only problem? One of her pups is sitting ON the American flag, which rubbed a lot of people the wrong way! Many believed it was disrespectful to the flag's meaning of freedom and independence.
The next day, the 30-year-old deleted the controversial pic and issued the following 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"
