Today (Mar. 20), rapper The Game and Fox Nation pundit Tomi Lahren got into an Instagram argument.
Lahren, shared two side by side photos of herself, one from high school and a current picture with a caption that was directed towards The Game.
“Hey @losangelesconfidential here you go. This is for you. On the left is an unflattering high school photo of me. On the right is me now. Same big forehead, same ears that kinda stick out, same eyebrows, same Tomi. The difference? Tomi today has the guts and the confidence to post that high school photo you mocked. Because guess what, I don’t do what I do for your approval or praise,” she wrote.
“I do it for the millions of young girls (on both sides of the political spectrum) who deserve to see a woman like me stand up for herself and not take shit from jerks like you. And ladies, I hope you see this and know that beauty isn’t about your hair, makeup, eyebrows, weight, or any of it. Beauty radiates when you have the confidence to stand up for and love yourself regardless of who tries to pull you down. So yeah Game, you can make fun of me and demean me but end of the day, you’re just a classless rapper who degrades women for attention. I win. Game over.”
Hours later, The Game shared the same side by side photographs and clapped back at the pundit.
“@tomilahren I had to post this picture of you “Mega Mind” because you limited comments on your post…. listen here semen chugger, as long as you have that forehead & that baby giraffe wee wee of a nose, you’ll never win !!! You’re a racist slut who sucked & swallowed her way into her job & position only to misuse your platform & degrade the very culture you you praised so much before your mediocre rise to media fame. You are a closet racist & the exact opposite of the role model for young girls of any color so stop the “ I do this for the young girls who… “ B**** shut the f*** up !!! You had 9 plastic surgeries because you hated yourself & after that when stripped of all make up, still look like a peeled orange & that’s what you think young girls should look up to & be motivated by ??? Because of this scary world we live where most celebrities walk on egg shells instead of voicing their opinions on foul shit, I caught ya cone head ass slippin & called you on your bullsh** !!! It took you months to come up wit that lame ass response & you thought people would rally behind you… but nope,” The Game replied.
“You are no ones role model, hero, motivation nor have you changed anyone’s life so once again, here you are getting put in your mothaf***in place by someone who represents & defends the culture you secretly love but try to sh** on in the public eye. WE are all REAL WOKE in 2019 & WE are not tolerating YOURS or anyone else’s bullsh**…. so go find a bathroom mirror, strip down all that cheap make up & look at the REAL YOU whore & cry !!! & just know, no matter what you say or do in this lifetime… you can never UN-SWALLOW all the d**ks you sucked on the way up. Oh’ & keep your mouth closed, I can smell the unborn babies from here !!!! P.S. put another quarter in, I’ll be here when you’re ready to play -THE GAME”
Yesterday, Lahren published a four minute and 16-second video clapping back at the rapper for comments that he previously made about her, last month.
“So it’s OK to degrade, demean and harass a woman so long as she’s a conservative and so long as her name is Tomi Lahren, huh, Game? Well, I’m Tomi Lahren and I have some “Final Thoughts” for you, Game, so listen up. If you’ll recall, a couple of months ago I was threatened by the rapper Cardi B,” Lahren said.
“Then I was attacked by the rapper Nicki Minaj. Then I was pretty much attacked by the rap community, their fans, and followers at large. Strangely, I am pretty used to it. But there was one vile rapper — I use the word “rapper” very loosely because he hasn’t really been relevant in 10 years — who calls himself “The Game.” His degrading posts (plural) on social media about me were so below-the-belt, sexually explicit and vile I never responded, until now. See, I have no problem arguing political points or policy but this fool’s attack on me had nothing to do with politics. It was all personal, all disgusting, and yes, dare I say it, sexist? I do. Sexist! The things he said about me were perhaps the ugliest and most repulsive things I have ever read. And I’ve read A LOT of nasty things about myself.”
Last month, Lahren made fun of rapper 21 Savage’s ICE arrest causing The Game to respond to her comments.
“21 Savage gettin detained by ICE is not funny nor anything for ya middle of the mall clip in wearin’ h** a** to be joking about,” The Game responded.
Nicki Minaj also responded to Lahren saying, “Your obsession w/our culture is scary to say the least. I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing @ ppl getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn clown.”
