Last week, conservative commentator Tomi Lahren turned 25, and a Happy Birthday post from Black Republican Kevin Martin has the internet convinced they are dating.
Martin gave Lahren a heartfelt shout out on her born day, along with a picture of the two:
Tomi, As you look back on yesterday, may your memories be warm ones. As you celebrate today, may your heart be filled with happiness and joy. As you look ahead to tomorrow, may all your deepest hopes and dreams come true. Happy big 25. Happy Birthday, Tomi Lahren . ❤️???
While the details of Lahren’s romantic or platonic relationship with Martin is unclear, many online users took the opportunity to drag both Lahren and Martin; mostly references to Martin’s race.
Much like Lahren, the proud Republican isn’t shy about expressing his unorthodox views, including the suggestion that Black oppression is a myth.
Check out some of Martin’s posts and reactions below.
Tomi Lahren having a black boyfriend makes perfect sense.Anyone who thinks it doesn’t, doesn’t understand white woman, black men, or racism.
