Section 176B of the U.S. Flag Code states, "The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise."

Granted, it also says that "the flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery," so someone should really tell pretty much every store everywhere.

If the flag does touch the ground, you're supposed to destroy it, "preferably by burning."

After the controversy, Kaley ended up apologizing to everyone by posting this:

The caption read:

I would like to comment on a photo I posted yesterday , that has caused lots of controversy. First off, please know, I have the utmost respect for my country. I am a proud American in every sense of the word. I understand the American flag stands for our freedom and represents American heroes , past and present.
Yesterday I made a mistake by posting the picture that was taken of my sweet dogs posing on an American flag. I sincerely apologize to anyone that has been offended by my previous post. This is no way reflects my feelings toward what the American flag represents. Living in the public eye, can be extremely difficult at times. Every mistake and every imperfection is amplified. I am not perfect. I am a proud American, today, tomorrow, always. πŸ’—
