Mr. T Lauds the Virtues of America While Others Simply Bash It

Mr. T (

Iconic actor and retired wrestler Mr. T delivered a heartfelt message Monday in celebration of July 4, expressing gratitude for America and reminding fellow citizens to unite in prayer.

"Happy Birthday America and Happy Independence Day! The Land of the Free and home of the Brave. The Red, the White, and the Blue. In God we Trust!" he wrote on Twitter.

Mr. T, whose birth name is Lawrence Tureaud, added, "We the people; together we stand, divided we fall! Black and white together, we shall overcome some day! The Nation that prays together, stays together!"

The performer also sent a third tweet expressing his love for the U.S. and his gratitude for being an American citizen.

Mr. T's social media praise for America came at the same time other celebrities took aim at America and their perceived loss of rights following the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion across the nation.

From actors and singers to TV hosts and commentators, some celebrities issued harsh rebukes.

Pop star Katy Perry, who famously grew up in a Christian home before entering the secular music arena, charged in a Twitter post that women in America "have fewer rights than an actual sparkler," referencing her song "Firework" in the message.

Other celebrities joined in with similar messages.

Singer and actress Bette Midler shared a meme proclaiming Independence Day has been canceled due to a purported lack of women's rights.

"[Fourth] of July has been canceled due to a shortage of Independence. Sincerely, Women," the image read.
