Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren may seem more like a country music fan, but the former television host for The Blaze actually has some love for hip-hop.
Lahren recently uploaded a short clip to her Instagram Live story featuring herself singing along to 21 Savage‘s “Bank Account.” The political commentator wrote the rapper’s name on the video and bops along to the song’s hook.
While some people on Twitter laughed off Tomi lip-synching “Bank Account,” others were rubbed the wrong way, especially after Lahren bashed JAY-Z and Beyonce following the singer’s 2016 Super Bowl halftime show.
“This isn’t about equality, it is about ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats and using fame and entertainment value to do so,” Lahren said at the time. “Talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home.”
Lahren’s comments led to Hov sampling her on Pusha T’s “Drug Dealers Anonymous.” Before the rapper kicks off his verse, Lahren can be heard saying, “Your husband was a drug dealer. For 14 years he sold crack cocaine.”
While it’s uncertain what other hip-hop songs Lahren has in her iTunes playlist, the political commentator previously praised Kendrick Lamar’s 2016 Grammy Awards performance and revealed she is a fan of the genre.
“For those that think Kendrick’s performance scared white people, you’re wrong,” she said. “Kendrick Lamar actually writes his songs, he speaks his truth. It’s refreshing to hear a hip-hop artist rap about something other than drugs, sex and violence—I say this as someone who happens to love rap music.”
