China's official news agency has blasted US lawmakers for complaining that the uniforms American athletes will wear at the London Olympics were manufactured in China.

The Xinhua News Agency on Monday called the American outcry over the made-in-China Olympic blazers ''hypocritical'' and ''irresponsible.''

It snarkily suggested that all US lawmakers should perhaps be banned from ''wearing anything or using any product'' that was made abroad — a near-impossible restriction in today's globalized economy.

Xinhua singled out US Senate majority leader Harry Reid, who had called for the uniforms to be piled up and burned.

''If there is anything that should be burned, it should really be the hypocrisy of the US politics,'' it said.
