Sean Hannity sounded off on United States Olympic Committee’s plan to redesign the American flag logo. The Olympic Committee is in the early stages of the redesign, which could include replacing the 50 stars with 5 new stars as well as altering the stripes.
According to The Daily Wire:
“The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic have actually been considering a redesign of the American flag for all of their official documents and promotional materials,” Hannity said on Monday. “If they approve this design, that would strip the U.S. flag — or the flag of at least most of the stars and stripes.”
“Here is my message – stop wasting your team’s time and money with a redesign of the American flag – it’s an awful idea,” Hannity said.
“Our stars & stripes should be the only flag representing our country at the Olympics and the Paralympics – there are so many amazing athletes and champions we are all so proud of.”
Later the USOPC, clarified it is not seeking to make any changes to the American flag flying over the podium.
“We want to be clear that we love our country and respect the American flag. We do not have any intention, not to mention the authority, to change our country’s flag that flies above the podium when a member of Team USA achieves Olympic or Paralympic greatness,” the statement concluded.
Recently, Macy Gray called the American flag racist and outdated and said the country should change the flag. That along with some Olympic athletes speaking against the country and flag has sparked outrage across the country.
