The city of Orlando, Florida has apologized over a statement made while promoting its Fourth of July fireworks special that said it “can’t blame” people who don’t “want to celebrate our nation right now.”

“A lot of people probably don’t want to celebrate our nation right now, and we can’t blame them,” the original statement said, according to WESH-TV. “When there is so much division, hate and unrest, why on earth would you want to have a party celebrating any of it?”

The article goes on to state the following:

“But in all seriousness, you know in your heart, Fourth of July fireworks are amazing, especially when you are standing in 90° heat, 100% humidity, next to 100,000 of your closest friends,” the statement continued. “In that moment, something takes over and we all become united in an inexplicable bond. Yes, America is in strife right now, but you know what…we already bought the fireworks.”


The statement received negative responses on social media including the Fraternal Order of Police in Orlando who said the message was in “poor taste.”

Then on Saturday evening the city issued an apology:

“The city of Orlando sincerely regrets the negative impact our words have had on some in our community,” the city said. “We understand these words offended some of our residents, which was not our intent. We value the freedoms we have in this country and are thankful to the men and women who fought and continue to fight for those. We take pride in celebrating the 4th of July to express our gratitude to those men and women and honor the country we live in.”

  1. The same people who don’t want us celebrating the Fourth are the same unAmerican bunch sowing the division, hatred, and unrest.

  2. Now is the time more than ever to celebrate our country and bring people together! I’ll never be ashamed of doing that!

  3. Wait…wasn’t Joe supposed to be the guy to bring everyone together? Things are worse than they ever were. …and no one can blame Trump for it…it’s all Joe and whoever pulls his strings…

  4. Celebrating the end of Roe v. Wade this year.

    Maybe we’ll have a new independence day when we undo the stolen election coup!

  5. When there is so much division, hate and unrest, why on earth would you want to have a party celebrating any of it?” Well guess which party is the perpetrators. Hint it’s not the magas!!!! Frankly you’re not going to rain on our parade.

    • If the socialist commies ( Democrats) get full control that won’t last. They already control the media, big tech suppressed free speech , they want to take your guns ( only if you own them legally ). It’s getting close to the time we use the 2nd amendment for what it was designed for

  8. When Disney starts layoffs, Orlando starts getting less Disney money, you’ll hear a different tune. Until then, enjoy your freedom, spend your money outside of Orlando.

  9. I think people who do not like their Independence should check out the freedom celebrations in let’s say N Korea, Afghanistan, Iran China.
