Tomi Lahren Rips ESPN Over Jemele Hill: ‘We’re Going to Start Turning Off the TV’

Tomi Lahren became a star in conservative media last August largely on the basis of a viral rant about Colin Kaepernick. So it hardly rates as a shock that Lahren decided to weigh in on Wednesday’s hot topic: ESPN anchor Jemele Hill calling President Donald Trump a white supremacist. And her take itself was equally unsurprising.

Appearing on Hannity Lahren argued that ESPN’s audience is comprised of Trump voters who figured to be alienated by Hill’s comment.

“It’s as if ESPN doesn’t realize that the Trump voter is their audience,” Lahren said. She added, “If they were going to do anything, they may want to think of replacing her just because she is bashing their own audience.”

Lahren went on to say that she’s not advocating for a boycott…but she’s not saying it won’t happen anyway.

“I wouldn’t call for a boycott or firing,” Lahren said. “But I would say to ESPN, your numbers are not going to lie, because we’re going to start turning off the TV. That’s how we’re going to voice our opinion and use our freedom of expression. You might be losing a big chunk of your audience and we won’t feel bad when you do.”
