Cardi B and Tomi Lahren

Cardi B Shuts Down Tomi Lahren for Criticizing George Floyd Protests

Cardi B is reigniting her feud with Tomi Lahren.

On Wednesday, the conservative political commentator took to Twitter to criticize people who looted a Target store in Minneapolis amid protests against the death of George Floyd. Videos and photos show windows being smashed and shelved being destroyed as looters hauled away televisions and other merchandise.

“How does looting, rioting and destroying your OWN community bring justice for anyone?” asked Lahren.

After seeing her tweet, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper responded by asking her where is the justice for Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed black man who was killed on Monday after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck during an arrest.

“How does targeting, profilin,beating and murdering black men with no consequence equal serving and protecting? Who’s giving them justice and trust on cops ?” she asked Lahren. “Mind your business and eat your salad !”

Lahren issued a sarcastic response. “Yeah stealing TVs and everything else from Target and setting AutoZone on fire is sure gonna fix the problem. You got it,” she wrote. “Just what the country recovering from economic collapse needs right now.”

Cardi also reposted a video of the looting and weighed in with her commentary. “They looting in Minnesota and as much as I don’t like this type of violence it is what it is,” she said. “Too much peaceful marches,too much trending hashtags and NO SOLUTIONS! The people are left with NO CHOICE.”

This is not the first time Cardi and Lahren have been at odds. In January 2019, Cardi slammed Lahren over comments made about Donald Trump and the government shutdown. “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020,” wrote the conservative.

Cardi was quick to call her out. “Leave me alone I will dog walk you,” she said, adding, “You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much.”

Many celebrities have spoken out in the wake of Floyd’s death including Ice Cube, Chance the Rapper, and Colin Kaepernick, while a #JusticeForFloyd petition on Change.org has over 2.7 million signatures.
