The 27-year-old Fox Nation star went to Twitter on Friday to share a statement from Alexo Athletica – the label she worked with for her & # 39; Freedom & # 39; assortment.

The 27-year-old Fox Nation star went to Twitter on Friday to share a statement from the Alexo Athletica – the label she worked with for her & # 39; Freedom & # 39; assortment
& # 39; Due to the higher labor costs and regulations that many US-based manufacturers face, we had little choice but to produce abroad, & # 39; according to Robbins statement.
& # 39; We work hard to bring our production back to the US and work with other hard-working companies that are proud of integrity and quality. & # 39;
Although Lahren did not specifically state where the clothing was manufactured, many of Alexo & # 39; s clothing are made in China.
After the blonde shared her tweet and the accompanying statement, she was faced with a backlash from fellow social media users.
& # 39; Translation: & # 39; We care more about profit than about American employees. & # 39; Great example of hypocrisy hypocrisy, & a person wrote.
& # 39; You have never been the one to practice what you preach, so this is not surprising, & # 39; another added.

Designs in the & # 39; Freedom & # 39; assortment of Lahren include a sweater for $ 69, leggings for $ 89 and a bomber jacket for $ 99, which Lahren has previously said to proudly reflect her American values.
During a promotional video, she said about the clothing: & The young people want something that says: I am proud to be an American, I believe in freedom, I love the American army.
& # 39; That is what these patterns really stand for. & # 39;

Lahren has also come under fire for collaboration with Alexo, mainly because some of his clothing contain built-in gun holsters.
And although Lahren's & # 39; Freedom & # 39; line cannot bear weapons, she reiterated her belief in the Second Amendment along with other patriotic slogans.
Lahren said last week: & I think there are many young girls who don't feel they have a brand that stands for their freedom.
They don't believe they have a brand that represents their rights. & # 39;
Lahren was also criticized for collaborating with the Alexo Athletica brand, which make gun holster pants. They can carry a weapon under 23 grams. The pants in the Lahren line do not have a gun holster
