Tomi Lahren slammed for American flag Halloween costume

Outspoken conservative television personality Tomi Lahren is facing backlash over her Halloween costume.

Lahren posted a photo of her patriotic costume on Instagram on Sunday writing, "Oh LA get ready to find your safe spaces! What am I? Well if you’re a conservative, I’m American AF. If you’re a lib, I’m 'offensive.' Let’s go."

Twitter didn’t hold back when it came to assessing her costume, pointing out that she may be a walking flag code violation, which states “no part part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform.” 

One notes, “Wearing the flag is considered an act of disrespect."

Another implies her costume is hypocritical, since she considers kneeling during the National Anthem disrespectful to the flag.

One more adds "Maybe it’s not about the flag."

On her side though was the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., who clapped back at Keith Olbermann, calling him stupid and showing a picture of him draped in a flag.

As for Lahren, she’s responded, tweeting out an excerpt which argues as long as her costume isn’t actually made from a flag she’s in the clear.

Did you miss the debut of The Snowflake Awards? Don't worry because they are streaming on my official FB page NOW! This extended edition includes our bloopers because unlike Snowflakes, we can laugh at ourselves! The Snowflake Awards was established to honor notable hypersensitive citizens, those who, when subjected to the slightest pressures of life, begin to melt! For too long the entertaining societal contributions of these delicate celebrities were overlooked! Sadly, we were content to take them seriously instead of recognizing their greatest gift; a never-ending goldmine of mock-able material that helps us realize how wonderful our lives are! No more. @docthompsonshow and I take on pop culture elitism and hypocrisy like you’ve never seen before! Visit https://dnc-trophy.myshopify.com/collections/all to get your commemorative Snowflake Awards tshirt! #TeamTomi #TheFlakies #snowflakes #SnowflakeAwards
After last night's speech it's safe to say OUR President Trump is indeed Making America Great Again. The radical notion Americans come first in our own damn country (established November 8th, 2016). I'll be on with @seanhannity tonight to discuss the speech! P.S. The hat is from @drunkamerica and it's my new favorite! #TeamTomi #godblessamerica #drunkAmerica
Will be signing this bad boy for auction after tonight's @allenamericans @rapidcityrush game! Proceeds to benefit Folds of America-the mission: provide educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. #TeamTomi #AllenAmericans #foldsofAmerica #honorthem #godblessamerica #hockey
That crazy and radical notion Americans and American safety take priority over feelings. #TeamTomi #AmericaFirst #AboutTime #mark19apparel
Life goes on and while it does, our brave men and women are overseas making a sacrifice so we don't have to. Remember Everyone Deployed. These kickass leggings are made by veteran owned and operated @mark19apparel #TeamTomi #RED #supportthetroops #Mark19 #leggingsarepants
We lost some fantastic and admirable celebrities in 2016 but what about our LEOs, first responders and service members? They sacrificed for us, for our country, our safety and our freedom. Here's to them. Home of the free because of the brave. #TeamTomi #backtheblue #godblessamerica #brookeandarrow #hartsandpearls #MAGA #USA #Merica
They call me "savage" but you can call me whatever you like. Just know I'm fearless, fiercely patriotic, and I don't back down. New Final Thoughts posted. #TeamTomi #fearless #bulletsandbombshells #tacticalshit

It was "Bring your Favorite Sign to Work Day" here @theblazetv and I thought maybe considering last night, this one would do. My Victory Final Thoughts are posted now! "We said 'screw your way, we're gonna do it our way.'" #TeamTomi #MAGA #PresidentTrump #AmericaFirst #election2016 #finalthoughts
I stand by Don because he doesn't back down. I respect that. Wouldn't it be nice if America stopped backing down and started doubling down like DJT? Sorry, I'm not the type of woman to sit in the corner and cry over spilled milk and the "p" word. Final thoughts on #trumptapes posted now. #TeamTomi #MAGA #standup #election2016 #neverhillary
Rocking that @hartsandpearls red, white, and blue headband! Some extra love for Old Glory today just to remind Hillary that the deplorables have left her basket and we ready to take November! #TeamTomi #hartsandpearls #camo #redwhiteandblue #maga
