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.
Tomi Lahren rapping along to 21 Savage is the embodiment of the criticism that Americans love black culture but hate black people— Ashley (@ashburns94) January 12, 2018
Tomi Lahren listens to 21 Savage, but if he or any other black person is murdered by police, you can be damn sure she will say they deserved it.— Sam White (@samwhiteout) January 12, 2018
If Tomi Lahren started signing Despacito and Latino men were all drooling over her, I would go ahead and cancel the song and Latino men. She's a racist, and racist can never be pretty.— Julissa Arce Raya (@julissaarce) January 12, 2018
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).
If they aren’t shithole countries, why don’t their citizens stay there? Let’s be honest. Call it like it is.— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) January 12, 2018
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.
