Lahren posted a photo of Beyoncé presenting NFL free agent Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
“Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a ‘legacy’ award,” Lahren tweeted. “This is how far we’ve fallen. Wow.”

More than 6,000 people have responded to Lahren’s original tweet. One response called Lahren a “propagandist,” while another said she is “on the wrong side of history.”
Several responses accused Lahren of being “jealous” of Beyoncé.
Beyoncé’s fans are known for being particularly vocal in defending the singer on social media.
“Black-hating Tami presents Black-hating Nazi Twitter with her daily dose of race-baiting rhetoric for clicks,” one person wrote. “This is how far down America has always been.”
You’re on the wrong side of history, Tomi. I just hope one day you’re brave enough to look at these real, and disconcerting issues surrounding racial/justice inequality from a holistic point of view instead of an egocentric one.

Criminally dishonest. You are not a journalist, you are a propagandist.

The Beyoncé jealousy is real. Perhaps because she is a beautiful, successful, talented woman and isn’t on her parent’s insurance?

Lahren has been consistently critical of Kaepernick over the movement he started in 2016 by kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.
Lahren faced backlash last month for posting a doctored image that appeared to show Kaepernick kneeling in front of the D-Day landings.
Kaepernick has been recognized for his activism with several awards this year, and he was a finalist for Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
Lahren has also attacked Beyoncé in the past, referring to her as “Beyoncé ‘Black Panther’ Knowles” after her Super Bowl halftime performance where she referenced the Black Panthers.
“This isn’t about equality, this is about ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats,” Lahren said at the time.
