Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to an Australian woman complaining about “too many American flags” to “go back to Australia” in response to a video posted online.
TikTok user Mia Chloe, whose username is @meanderwithmia, posted a video calling out the abundance of American flags she observed in her travels to the United States.
“I’m just going to say it. There are too many American flags. They’re on houses. They’re on cars. Some are on couch cushions,” she said.
“You’re the only country that I know that does this,” she added.
In response to the video, Abbott wrote “Go back to Australia,” along with eight American flag emojis.
Chloe claimed she had only ever seen an Australian flag on the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge.
“Could not tell you what it looks like,” she said. “I know it’s blue, and it’s got some stars on it, but I think I could draw the American flag from memory.”
“I think I could make a bloody sculpture out of it,” she added. “That’s how many times I’ve seen it. It’s enough. Let’s pull back on it, OK. Let’s stay humble.”
The TikTok user also complains about American supermarkets, calling them “a trap.”
She complained about going into a Walmart and wound up shopping for four hours but only purchased three items.
The woman then apologized to anyone in the Midwest, calling Kansas “unlivable” due to the weather.
“I’m currently in Kansas,” she posted in an Aug. 4 video.
“Even though it’s blue skies right now. Give it an hour, and it’s going to be thunder storming; there’s going to be lighting. You’re going to get stuck in a f hail shower.”
