‘Finally the blonde racist perspective will get a voice’: Internet shames Fox News for hiring Tomi Lahren
Tomi Lahren, the notorious race-baiting Trump supporter who was fired by Glenn Beck’s media company earlier this year, has been hired as a contributor by Fox News.
As CNN’s Oliver Darcy reports, Lahren will primarily be a contributor for Sean Hannity’s show, though she will also be involved in “work on digital product in development.”
In the past, Lahren has not been shy about weighing in on race issues. Among other things, she has said that black people risk getting shot by police unless they condemn the Black Lives Matter movement to show officers that they aren’t against cops; has compared Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan; and has told former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to be grateful for having two white parents who adopted him after his black father abandoned him.
She also said in an interview with Playboy earlier this year that her “most important” goal was to help make white people less afraid of offending black people.
The internet reacted with horror to Lahren’s hiring, which will allow her to bring her brand of race baiting to a much larger mass audience than ever before.
Check out some of the top reactions below.

Britt McHenry and Tomi Lahren ending up at the cesspool of Fox is fitting

They should be forced to label her “Tomi Lahren, Obamacare Recipient” on every announcement.

Hmm will Fox News healthcare be as good as Tomi Lahren's current Obamacare plan though? 🤔

Tomi Lahren is another brain dead blonde added to give even more racist & ignorant rhetoric to Fox’s ill-informed viewers. Not surprised 😒 https://t.co/jeHEzFmMfW
