I regret to inform you that Tomi Lahren, a racist blonde sprite who’s never met a black celebrity she’s liked, has found yet another prominent person of color to deride.
The Fox News performative outrager took a break from blowing a gasket over Colin Kaepernick and calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old congresswoman, not “successful in real life” (Lahren was handed her own talk show out of college) to mock the rapper 21 Savage after news broke that he was arrested by members of U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) for overstaying his visa (which supposedly expired in 2006), and may be deported.
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA ‘21 Savage’ during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta,” ICE spokesman Brian Cox told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon.”
Lahren shared a link to the story on Twitter, along with the message: “I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya”—a play on the lyrics to 21 Savage’s tune “Bank Account.”
So Cardi B, whose partner is fellow Atlanta rapper Offset (of Migos), a frequent collaborator of 21 Savage’s, fired back at Lahren: “Don’t make me get my leash.”
The clap-back is, of course, a nod to the Bronx rap artist’s previous smackdown of Lahren.
After a clip of Cardi bemoaning President Trump’s government shutdown over his symbolic border wall—and imploring government workers to speak out against the president for it—went very viral, Lahren, as is her wont, issued a racially-tinged rejoinder, saying, “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020.”
Lahren’s insinuation that Cardi B lacks intelligence because she’s an Afro-Latina MC from the Bronx rubbed a lot of people the wrong way—including Cardi, whose hilarious response (“Leave me alone I will dog walk you”) was shared by nearly 200,000 people.
It remains to be seen whether her latest clap-back will reach these shareable heights, but one thing’s for sure: mark up another ‘L’ for Tami.
