Tomi Lahren is feuding with a famous female rapper on Twitter—again. Last month, the pundit came for Cardi B, who effectively clapped back. This week, Lahren is beefing with Nicki Minaj over 21 Savage’s ICE arrest.
Following the news that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 21 Savage, claiming he was in the country illegally, Lahren tweeted, “I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya.” Her slight referenced lyrics from one of 21 Savage’s songs, “Bank Account.”

Minaj didn’t find the comment funny. In response, she wrote, “Your obsession w/our culture is scary, to say the least. I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing at people getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn clown.”

Cardi B also chimed in. She told Lahren, “don’t make me get my leash” in reference to a previous argument on Twitter when she told the Fox Nation host that she would “dog walk” her.

Lahren didn’t get into it any further with Cardi B, but she did snap back at Manaj.
“When you’re in the country illegally, you get deported. I didn’t write the law and neither did ICE. They enforce it,” she wrote. “I hope 21 Savage is able to get an entertainment visa or become a citizen one day. P.S. My ancestors did discover America.”

Others on Twitter were confused about how Lahren’s family “discovered America.”
your ancestors invaded it, you can't discover a country that's already habited tomato lasagna https://t.co/hUD2nF0Mt5

Even Dictionary.com chimed in to remind her of the definition of the word “discover.”

It’s hard to say why Lahren decides to provoke people online. Thank goodness Minaj and Cardi B are stepping in to check her facts.
