End of rant… Now let’s talk about what happened.
People have been criticizing Rebel Athletic for an Instagram post they published. It’s a photo of a uniform they helped create for a rodeo show and many were upset to see the “blue lives matter” flag on its chest.
Supposedly, the flag was attached later and not made by Rebel, but many are still upset that the company chose to promote the uniform.
Now, what even is the “blue lives matter” flag? Why are people upset?
This is what Dictiorary.com says:
According to the Blue Lives Matter NYC website, the organization was established to support police officers and their families during times of need.
