Business Insider reports:
Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren announced Friday that her “Freedom” athleisure line is not made in the United States. After the line was announced a week earlier, critics were quick to point out the range of sports bras, leggings, and other garments offered in star-spangled and camouflage prints were made in China.
Lahren wrote on Twitter alongside a statement from Alexo Athletica CEO Amy Robbins that the brand that is producing the line “aims to be Made in America” and is still “working towards that,” but “increased labor costs and heightened regulations” pushed their production overseas.
Like many American small business owners, Alexo aims to be Made in America. We are working towards that. A message from Alexo CEO Amy Robbins. pic.twitter.com/D09selTIpx

You are charging $90 for fvcking MADE IN CHINA yoga pants. You COULD have them made in the US, still charge $90 and still make a profit.
This is just outright gouging for more money and I will love to watch this #Hypocritical line fail.

What a cheap shot blaming it on regulations. You’re so greedy that even minimum wage is too much for you to pay. The reality is you just don’t want to give up those huge margins you get by paying slave wages overseas.
