Jay Z Laughs Off Political Commentator Tomi Lahren’s Drug Dealer Remarks
Beyonce's Afrocentric Super Bowl 50 halftime show brought the hater out of a lot of people. One person who took great exception to the show was Fox News talking head Tomi Lahren, who let off a fiery diatribe blasting the R&B singer and her husband Jay Z.
Lahren shared her thoughts during "Final Thoughts With Tomi" on her show with The Blaze. "This isn't about equality, it is about ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats and using fame and entertainment value to do so," she said, referring to Bey's Black Panther-themed showing. "Guess what Beyonce? Your husband was a drug dealer. For 14 years he sold crack cocaine. Talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home."
Word got back to Hov about Lahren's remarks, and his response? Laughter. In a brief video that has surfaced online thanks to Taxstone, host of the Tax Season podcast, he mentions he is in the presence of the "14-year drug dealer," to which Jigga reacts with a huge belly laugh. This is sure to get Lahren's panties in a bunch.
One more thing that is sure to have the right-wing jester steaming is Jay's recent $1.5 million donation to the Black Lives Matter movement through his company Tidal. The mula was raised during a star-studded charity concert known as the Tidal X 10:20 Festival, which, took place in October. The concert featured a stacked lineup of artists including Jay Z, Beyoncé, Nas, Lil Wayne Nicki Minaj, T.I., Rick Ross, Usher, Pusha T, French Montana, Travis Scott, Damian Marley, Nick Jonas, Meek Mill, Vic Mensa and Fabolous.
