FOX host Tomi Lahren is facing backlash after partnering with Alexo Athletica to launch a leggings brand that features gun holsters. "For those who love God, Guns and Country and are proud to show it. Freedom.," the 27-year-old conservative news commentator tweeted Friday with a link to her new line. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the post generated 8,500 comments, with many calling out the fact that the tags on Alexo Athletica products show that they are made in China, contradicting her patriotic description. They also called the launch of the line--in wake of the deadly mass shootings that took place in Ohio and Texas--"horribly executed" and "vomit-inducing." The brand’s Signature Carrywear pieces include pockets created to "store a taser, mace, stun gun, blade firearm (up to 23 oz. loaded or less) or any other tool you choose to carry.”
