Macy Gray is criticized for her call for a new American flag.
On Thursday, the Grammy-winning singer shared an editorial on MarketWatch that the current flag serves as a “replacement” for the Confederate flag, which she called “a symbol of opposition to the abolition of slavery.”
She continued, calling the flag “ragged, dated, divisive and incorrect” and saying “it no longer represents democracy and freedom.”
Gray questioned the current American flag’s color symbolism and star rating, suggesting that 62 years after its conception, it’s time to “reset” the flag.

It seems many did not like the singer’s idea of ”I Try” and shared their thoughts online.
“WTAF ?! Now the flag is too white ?!” tweeted a reader. “Maybe Macy Gray needs some time with our military to get some perspective.”
“Macy Gray should recognize that the flag she wants to replace was the flag under which these soldiers died trying to free African-American slaves from Democrats,” said another.

Addition of a third: “Cancel Macy Gray and anyone else who has a problem with the American flag.”
There were others, however, that echoed the musician’s sentiments.
“Ironic, those who denounce Macy Gray are the same who applaud the insurgents who beat the Capitol Police with American flags,” wrote a Twitter user. They also support the autocracy and Putin. So which reds, whites and blues do you support? The hypocrisy is infuriating.

“If you have flags, stickers, shirts, masks, or anything else that has the thin blue line, Confederate flag, or that stupid Trump flag, you have no right to be upset that Macy Gray wants a redesign of the American flag (which has been done several times) ” another said.
