Tomi Lahren Faces Backlash After Saying She Kicked Her Dog Five Times
Tomi Lahren says she kicked her dog multiple times because it was making too much noise during her appearance on national TV
Lahren admitted to kicking her dog Kota during a “Fox 7 Friends” appearance in a video she shared to her Instagram story.
“Why don’t you tell the world what you were doing during my entire ‘Fox & Friends’ hit,” Lahren says in the video. “Oh I know, chewing on her damn bone as loud as she possibly could. So I had to kick her about five times during the show.”
The dog appears to be fine, but kicking a dog is NO laughing matter. Even if you didn’t really kick the dog just saying you did FIVE times is nothing to joke about.
TMZ caught up with Tomi Lahren at LAX to ask her about the Instagram story where she said she kicked her dog five times. The media personality claimed she was kidding about all of that.
“I don’t think everyone’s upset: I think people are pretty logical and they understand it was a joke,” she told the cameraman while adding that she actually loves her dog.
People across the Internet responded to Lahren’s video:
Is being a dog abuser part of your job???

Only a heartless person would kick a dog just for doing what dogs normally do—and a reasonable person would simply have moved out of the way or moved the animal. Tomi Lahren needs lessons in basic empathy and logic.
