Twitter Reacts: Tomi Lahren Gets Splashed

Splish splash, Tomi took a bath.

Fox News staple Tomi Lahren had water thrown in her face while out at a restaurant on May 20, according to Fox. The incident was recorded by other customers at the Minneapolis joint, immediately going viral.

People on Twitter were quick to react to the incident, demonstrating mixed perspectives. Because Lahren is a controversial conservative figure, many on the right defended her, while many on the left applauded the restaurant hecklers. Some moderate observers agreed that while Lahren may not express agreeable views, the hecklers had no right to treat her that way.

The incident garnered enough attention to warrant a Twitter reaction from President Trump as well.

Tomi Lahren remained calm in the wake of the Twitter storm. She tweeted:

Lahren appeared early Wednesday on Fox & Friends to make a public statement on what happened in Minneapolis. She reported that she has experienced this sort of treatment in the past, and that she is “used to it.” Despite this, Lahren stated that the incident was disheartening, especially since it took place in front of her parents.
