Cardi B slams Tomi Lahren for criticizing George Floyd's death protests: 'Mind your business, eat your salad!'
Rapper Cardi B has slammed right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren over her comments on the protests after George Floyd's death. Thousands of people participated in the protests on May 27, confronting Minneapolis police with demands for justice for Floyd.
Post the protests which had taken place in Minnesota against the wrongful death of Floyd, Lahren took to Twitter to make some comments. In the tweet, she had written, "How does looting, rioting, and destroying your OWN community bring justice for anyone?"
'Bodak Yellow' singer Cardi B caught Tomi's tweet and responded to her saying, "How does targeting, profilin, beating and murdering black men with no consequence equal serving and protecting? Who’s giving them justice and trust on cops? Mind your business and eat your salad!"
Many social media users across Twitter were fully in support of Cardi's response and took to the comments section to encourage her. One such user shared, "@TomiLahren perhaps someone should place a knee on your neck and see how your family will react!" A second user wrote, "Myb and eat your salad” is a whole damn mood." A third user commented and said, "Cardi don’t give her your energy or time. She doesn’t want to know the answer, and she doesn’t want to be apart of the solution. She’s just a bonafide troll that hides behind her cross necklace & Bible."
"Period eat ya salad...KAREN" wrote a fourth. Cardi, Diddy, Ciara, and Demi Lovato have been among the first few celebrities to express their outrage and anger over the death of George Floyd.
We had previously reported that a white police officer was seen kneeling over the neck of Floyd for over eight minutes even after Floyd repeatedly said that he was unable to breathe. Many celebrities took to various social media platforms to express their disgust and outrage at the incident. After the incident, Cardi had taken to social media to share, "Enough is enough! What will it take? A civil war? A new president? Violent riots? It’s tired! I’m tired! The country is tired! You don’t put fear in people when you do this you just show how coward YOU ARE! And how America is really not the land of the free!"
The four police officers involved in the case were fired even as FBI and state officials launched an investigation into the 46-year-old's death after a video of the incident went viral. Floyd later lost his life after officers arrested him for allegedly trying to use forged documents at a local deli. The four disgraced police officers were from the Minneapolis Police Department.
We previously reported that the family lawyer has called for the cop in question, Derek Chauvin, to be charged with murder and the other three officers involved to be charged as murder accomplices.
The attorney for the victim's family, Ben Crump shared, "They were supposed to protect and serve citizens like George. We in black America, we are done dying at the hands of the people that are supposed to protect and serve us."
