Matthew Koma, who is married to Hilary Duff, made fun of the "Full House" star over the weekend on TikTok by calling her out for a video she posted in the style of a selfie in which she was decked out in Fourth of July-themed gear while Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." played in the background. Hilary Duff's husband called her out for the video.

"Yeah, that, what song are you playing right now? It's true that it's about troops who came back from Vietnam to find that they were treated like trash. "Yeah, it's not about the Fourth of July," Koma, who is 35 years old, remarked in the 9-second TikTok, which was a duet with the video that Cameron Bure uploaded on the national holiday at the beginning of this month.

"I mean, come on, you wouldn't expect anything less from me, would you?" The actress, who is 46 years old, is shown in the original video tape saying this while wearing a baseball cap with the phrase "God is Good" and a shirt that said "God Bless America."

After that, she let out a giddy smile of happiness before adding, "Happy Fourth of July!" The cheery melody of Springsteen's era-defining blockbuster single, which is emphasised by the obviously rousing chorus that plays in the background of the TikToks, belies the fact that the song really has a deeper, more sinister message than it initially appears to convey.

In a television interview from the 1970s, the singer, who is now 72 years old, discussed where the song's inspiration came from."That one song, in particular, existed inside a certain social environment.The country had moved farther to the right, and at the time, Republicans were basically trying to co-opt anything American, he stated. The country had also gone to the right.

More recently, in the last edition of the podcast "Renegades: Born in the U.S.A.," presented by Barack Obama in conjunction with the New Jersey native, Bruce Springsteen commented on how the music communicates true ambivalence about American identity. Obama and Springsteen hosted the podcast.

The legendary musician stated that "This is a song about the pain, glory, and shame of identity and of place." He was referring to the fact that the lyrics tell the story of a fictional Vietnam veteran who has returned from war, only to find himself grappling with his personal patriotism in the aftermath of his service. "This is a song about the pain, glory, and shame of identity and of place," the musician said.

A complicated image of the nation emerges as a result. "Our protagonist is a person who has been betrayed by his homeland, but who nonetheless maintains a profound sense of connection to the country in which he was raised," Springsteen explained further.

Springsteen also shared his opinion on "why the music has been taken," which was particularly relevant in light of Koma's criticism of Cameron Bure's decision to include the song in her TikTok video.He elaborated by saying that "one reason" was because it was so strong, and "two reasons" was that its imagery was so thoroughly American.

"However, it did require that you keep two beliefs that are diametrically opposed to one another in your head at the same time. Namely, that you could be quite critical of your nation while still being extremely proud of your nation at the same time. And it is a topic that continues to be the subject of debate right up to this very day.

The tweet was made only a few days after JoJo Siwa called Cameron Bure "the rudest celebrity" she's ever encountered. Koma's post came shortly after that.In a video that Page Six was able to obtain, the former "Dance Moms" cast member, who is now 19 years old, confirmed that she had a phone call with Cameron Bure to talk it out since then. However, she claimed that the actress did not share the full story when she mentioned it to fans on social media.
