Tomi Lahren isn’t a stranger to being at the center of controversy, but she may have posted her most shocking and insensitive tweets yet following the killing of five police officers at a protest in Dallas. The Internet is absolutely LIVID at Tomi for comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the KKK.
Twitter is blowing up with people lashing out at journalist Tomi Lahren, 23, and it all stems from a tweet she posted after eleven police officers were shot, and five killed, in Dallas on July 7. In her message, Tomi slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, and in return, the Internet is absolutely tearing her apart. See the tweets here.
“Meet the new KKK, they call themselves “Black Lives Matter” but make no mistake their goals are far from equality,” she tweeted, adding the hashtag #bluelivesmatter in support of the police gunned down in Dallas.
The controversial message comes after snipers opened fire during a protest, injuring six police officers and killing five more. The protest was taking place to mourn the lives of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, black men who were shot and killed by cops, for no apparent reason, earlier in the week.
Twitter users immediately began calling Tomi, who hosts a show on TheBlaze, out for being ignorant and insensitive, but she didn’t change her opinion. Tomi has made it clear: She does NOT support the Black Lives Matter movement.
“This is what happens when the media and our leaders validate and embolden those who want to wage a war on cops,” she wrote. “Notice how we say #BlueLivesMatter after these tragedies? Not white lives matter. Cops don’t have a race and I stand with BLUE.”
She added, “Shouldn’t celebrate death of ANY innocent person. Period. The difference? Many in the BLM community are openly applauding this war on cops. A battle of the races solves NOTHING. A war on cops SOLVES NOTHING. I don’t wish for the death of anyone and I certainly don’t applaud it. Grieving the loss of Sterling & Castile doesn’t make applauding the loss of #DallasPD acceptable. You don’t get a pass.”

@TomiLahren Right, the actions of ONE are suddenly the responsibility of others. What a racist idiot.

@TomiLahren Is Out Of Her Mind & Is Very Ignorant. Its Easy For Her To Say Whatever She Wants Because Its Not Her People Being Killed.
