Tomi Lahren’s Utter Cluelessness in Response to Jesse Williams’ Speech is an Astounding Reminder of White Fragility

After actor Jesse Williams’ BET Humanitarian Acceptance Speech on Sunday’s BET Awards, a wave of white backlash has been aimed at the 34-year-old.

Conservative host of “The Blaze,” Tomi Lahren joins the ruckus by “calling out” the actor’s “racism” in a clip posted June 28 on her personal Facebook page.

Lahren believes that Williams’ speech was divisive and an opportunity to bash white people.

“Was it a celebration of Black entertainment or an opportunity to complain about the plight of wealthy Black actors and musicians?” says Lahren.

“I saw a lot of talent on that stage, but at the same time, a whole lot of victimhood,” she continues. “The BET definition of a humanitarian is someone who perpetuates a war on cops.”
