Daughters Of The American Revolution Protest Ralph Lauren's Olympic Uniforms

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Daughters of the American Revolution are threatening to ban Polo merchandise from being sold in various country clubs across the country after the lack of stars and stripes on the Olympic uniforms, the New York Post reports. Instead of an abundance of American flags, Lauren designed the pieces with huge Polo logos, which has some--but not all--DARs heated.

DAR spokeswoman Bren Landon said, "If there is in fact any movement afoot to form a boycott against this manufacturer, it is being done by a few individual members who do not have the authority to speak for the national society. No such boycott is planned, nor has it been discussed."

Even Ann Coulter tried to calm down the distressed DARs, saying, "If you want athletes to wear un-logo'd uniforms, you have to sponsor them instead of Polo. That's just how life is."
