Ana Kasparian rips anti-Beyoncé host: Do more with your life than ‘talking sh*t about minorities’
Young Turks host Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur hammered conservative host Tomi Lahren on Thursday for complaining about Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance.
“She’s like f*cking 23, 24 years old. Go find a hobby,” she said. “Go do something better with your life other than sitting at The Blaze and talking sh*t about minorities. I’m sorry. Maybe that was too harsh. But she’s a f*cking bimbo who doesn’t even know what she’s f*cking saying.”
Lahren — who is 23 — criticized the singer on Monday for using costuming meant to pay homage to the Black Panther movement during the show, accusing her of “ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats” and promoting “an overthrow of white domination,” a phrase Uygur seemed to find curious.
“That doesn’t sound so outrageous,” he noted. “That sounds pretty good, right?”
“She’s extremely transparent in her views,” Kasparian replied.
Lahren also accused Beyoncé of “ripping off the historical band-aid” surrounding racism, saying, “Why be a cultural leader when you can play the victim, right?”
Uygur countered that by saying that being “a cultural leader” means something very specific to Lahren and other conservatives.
“What could Beyoncé possibly say about this issue that you would say, ‘Oh, great job, we really appreciate it’?” he argued. “You know the answer: the only thing she could say is, ‘The real problem is black people, black-on-black crime, and black culture.’ If Beyoncé had said that, you’d be like, ‘Way to go, way to be a cultural leader.'”
Meanwhile, Kasparian said it was Lahren who was actually making herself out to be a victim.
“She’s like, ‘I wanted to watch the Super Bowl without feeling bad about myself or making me think about things that make me feel icky,'” Kasparian said, affecting a whiny voice.
