Twitter drags Tomi Lahren for lip syncing to 21 Savage

She got slammed for hypocrisy.

Tomi Lahren continues to enjoy the benefits of black culture without giving much consideration to black lives.

In a video uploaded to her Instagram story Friday, the conservative pundit lip syncs to rapper 21 Savage’s hit single “Bank Account.”

I got 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 M’s in my bank account,” Lahren mouths.

It’s unclear if she’s bragging about coming into some money or simply enjoying one of the best songs of 2017.

In response to the post, some men drooled over the fact that Lahren knows rap music exists, while others dragged her for the blatant display of hypocrisy.

Honestly, this ‘80s remix of Lahren’s own quotes is the only thing the newscaster should be singing. This is the same woman who spoke out against Jay-Z and Beyoncé after Bey’s incredible Super Bowl performance.

“This isn’t about equality, it is about ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats and using fame and entertainment value to do so,” Lahren said at the time. “Talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home.”

Lahren’s history is peppered with unsavory comments toward people of color, including the times she called Black Lives Matter a terrorist group, criticized Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players for protesting police brutality, and used the few black people she knows as props (i.e., Trevor Noah and Charlamagne Tha God).

The Fox anchor also recently sided with President Donald Trump’s comments about immigrants from “shithole” countries.

The video of her lip syncing is just another example of Lahren’s wish-washy principles. For someone who loves Trump, she’s still a fan of a vocal anti-Trumper. She must have never seen 21 Savage’s Trump-bashing intro for his “Nothin’ New” video—otherwise, she might have to change her tune.
