The 25-year-old posted a picture on Twitter of the Lemonade superstar handing Colin Kaepernick the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award at Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year Award. The caption of the picture read: “Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a “legacy” award. This is how far we’ve fallen. Wow.”

The original tweet garnered over 7,000 responses. Several accused Lahren of being “jealous” of Beyoncé, while others poked fun at her unemployment, which made headlines earlier this year.
Lahren has been critical of Beyoncé and Kaepernick for quite some time. Bey’s sixth studio-album featured an video for the song “Formation,” which tackled the issue of police brutality. Her performance at the 2016 Super Bowl featured her dancers robed in Black Panther attire.
Kaepernick made headlines for kneeling during the national anthem during his tenure as a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. His action was to commemorate the lives of black people lost to police brutality, and many felt it was disrespectful to the flag. He is currently a free agent.

Racist @TomiLahren is still obsessed with @Beyonce and @Kaepernick7 as they are too busy making progress for America than crying about other people’s actions and doing nothing like Tomi. https://t.co/8FBjxGb64j
