Social media users took to Redi's comment section and praised her for speaking some sense into Penny.
"The Eiffel Tower was built for a specific trade show and was originally meant to be demolished after the show. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France because of the immigrants taken in by America. This flag of ours will have no real significance."
"Sometimes people tweet from a position of privilege and fail to read the room."
"Great idea but the timing is very wrong and very insensitive considering the state we are in."
