Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren got tricked into a selfie that was ultimately a set up to film her response as a man asked her about her about previous racist comments.
A man tricked Tomi Lahren into taking a selfie with him, only to record himself asking her about what it feels like to be a “racist piece of sh*t.” She smiled and continued to walk away.
According to the young man’s post about the video on Reddit, it was recorded about a month ago in NYC. The man goes by thatgoodgood96 on Reddit.
“‘Hey you wanna take a picture with me, huge fan!’ and then the rest was history,”he wrote of the encounter. “Fun to call her out and the silence that ensued after is unforgettable. Hopefully she has to wear a little bigger hat next time walking around NYC.”
The video has nearly 300,000 views. Daily Mail found Instagram user Charlamagne Thagod’s uploaded video of their awkward encounter.
In response to the video, Tomi Lahren told DailyMail.com: ‘I will always treat people with respect. I was asked for a photo from a “fan” and it’s a shame he decided to act like a jerk. It won’t change the way I interact with those who approach me. My parents raised me to be polite to everyone even when it’s not reciprocated.’
Lahren has a history of being attacked by many online as a racist.
