The Olympics Have Decided To Ban Any "Black Lives Matter" Apparel.


The postponed 2020 Summer Olympics are set to start in July with a new warning for athletes.

The International Olympic Committee has specifically banned the slogan "Black LivesMatter'" from any athlete's clothing or gear.

It's part of the IOC's long-standing rules about no political demonstrations on the playing field, medal stand, or during official ceremonies.

Words like "peace", "respect", "solidarity", "inclusion", and "equality" will be allowed on t-shirts.

So far, IOC officials have not said what types of punishment athletes could face for violating the rules.
