When Beyoncé presented Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award Tuesday night, many haters came out of the woodwork. One outspoken right-winger, Tomi Lahren, was one of them and the BeyHive did not take her tweet lightly.
Bey thanked Kaepernick, who is responsible for launching the NFL protest against the national anthem, for his “selfless heart.” But Lahren decided to bash the singer, who famously appeared on top of a police car in her “Formation” video.

While Bey and free agent quarterback Kaepernick have gone on record as saying they are not anti-police or anti-American, the former TheBlaze correspondent paid that no mind.

The Beyoncé jealousy is real. 😂 Perhaps because she is a beautiful, successful, talented woman and isn’t on her parent’s insurance?

You’re on the wrong side of history, Tomi. I just hope one day you’re brave enough to look at these real, and disconcerting issues surrounding racial/justice inequality from a holistic point of view instead of an egocentric one.

And Bey’s mom herself, Tina Lawson, also hit back. She slammed the idea that Bey and Kaep are “disrespecting our soldiers or All police officers, who protect us every day and we have the utmost respect for. Or the Flag.”

Wow what a powerful statement !! Thank you Beyonce for being brave enough to say what many of us are thinking!!! Translates to me as : when you protest injustice and racism & put a spotlight on it that means that you are being “ Un American “or disrespectful to our country ! What does that say about this Country? Our current administration would have you believe that the protest was protesting the flag and the national anthem !! Wrong!!! There is no mention of the purpose of his protest which was the killing of innocent unarmed black men and racism in this country. The constant smokeScreens and deflecting that’s done every day is laughable! That is the game that they play with us every day about everything. They would have you believe that this is about people disrespecting the flag or disrespecting our soldiers. What bullshit? It’s very interesting that in Beyoncé s speech She makes it crystal clear that Mr. Kaepernick nor anyone else was disrespecting our soldiers or The good police officers the ones that really do protect us every day, and we have the utmost respect for. Or the Flag. Its interesting that I don’t see that printed as often as the other part which i have read over and over. I just have to say that in my opinion if you are a person that is a good human being and devoid of racism but that when you hear or see injustices being done to someone else and you don’t stand up and say something about it, when you can conveniently look the other way , you are complicit in this behavior and are almost as guilty as the person perpetrating it! I don’t expect everyone to get it!! I do expect that this is going to piss a lot of people off and if it does you are exactly who I’m talking about if the shoe fits wear it! My prayer is that this will inspire at least one person to please stand up today to injustice !!! ❤️
