Fox News Hosts Slam Colleague Tomi Lahren For Ugly Kamala Harris Tweet

Fox Nation personality Tomi Lahren faced heavy criticism for a tweet baselessly accusing Sen. Kamala Harris of sleeping her “way to the top” — even getting hit by several Fox News hosts.

Lahren, furiously live-tweeting the Democratic primary debate Wednesday night, wrote in one missive: “Kamala did you fight for ideals or did you sleep your way to the top.”

Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, once dated Harris. Lahren faced pushback for her tweet from Fox’s Kat Timpf, who said, “I am curious to know what you think bringing a woman’s personal/sexual life into this accomplishes. Men do that to us enough as it is.”

Lahren didn’t respond to Timpf but later doubled down.

Lahren was also decried by Fox News’ Janice Dean, who called the tweet “disgusting” and said it would earn a male colleague a suspension.

Fox News contributor Britt McHenry also condemned the tweet.

“Do you have any idea how damaging this is to women who’ve actually been sexually harassed, assaulted or demeaned in the workplace?” McHenry asked Lahren.

Recently, McHenry accused Fox co-host Tyrus of sexual harassment. Tyrus was removed from the Fox Nation show he hosted with McHenry following the allegations.

UPDATE 8/1: Tomi Lahren has apologized, as is tradition:

Outside of Fox, Lahren was widely condemned on Twitter for her remark.
