NBC’s New Year’s Eve host Carson Daly wore an NYPD hat on Wednesday night, leading to mixed reactions from those on social media.

Daly was both praised and criticized for his fashion statement following the death of Eric Garner in New York City. NYPD officers have since been under fire by those claim they used excessive force.

“Another ignorant privileged white man supporting police brutality on TV,” one Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user pondered how reactions might have differed if someone had worn an #ICan’tBreathe shirt instead.

Fans of Daly applauded him for wearing the hat, calling the host a “hero.”
