Tomi Lahren trashes the BET Awards and Jesse Williams
Most of us probably wouldn’t know who TV host Tomi Lahren was if her rant about Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video hadn’t gone viral. But it looks like the young television host has set her sights on a new target: Jesse Williams.
The Blaze TV host took on the topic of Sunday night’s BET Awards and decided to trash the network and actor/activist Jesse Williams for his speech on social justice.
“Was it a celebration of black entertainment or an opportunity to complain about the plight of wealthy black actors and musicians?” says Lahren in an online video.
“I saw a lot of talent on that stage, but at the same time a whole lot of victimhood,” she continued.
“The BET definition of a humanitarian is someone who perpetuates a war on cops,” Lahren says, referring to Jesse Williams’ award for activism.
“Let’s listen to this high-paid television actor tell us just how bad he has it,” she says.
In addition to the rant about Williams and BET, Lahren goes on to make factually incorrect assertions about the Civil War ( according to her it was fought by white people’s ancestors to free slaves) and the Black Lives Matter movement.
