TOMI LAHREN’S GUN IN YOGA PANTS INSTAGRAM POST SPARKS SOCIAL MEDIA RIDICULE
Tomi Lahren is once again facing the mirth of the internet. This time the conservative TV personality is being mocked for her fashion sense. Well, one fashion choice in particular.
Last week, the 25-year-old posted a photo on Instagram , featuring herself in yoga pants—with a handgun seemingly stuffed down the front.
The Fox News contributor was promoting the pants for Alexo Athletica, which specially designed a front pocket for women to carry a firearm while they exercise, should they so choose.
Lahren wrote in the caption, "Live. Speak. Stand. Run. Carry with Confidence. Ladies, chances are your assailant is gonna be bigger, stronger and faster and that’s why you have @alexoathletica for your gun, your mace, or even your phone."
Alexo Athletica is a sportswear company with a pro-gun message. A statement on the company's website decries "big name athletic companies [that] shy away from promoting one’s second amendment right and certainly have never built in the ability to do so." In contrast, "Alexo will never back down from supporting a woman’s right to choose how she defends herself while striving to bring the best in fashionable, functional active carry-wear to the market."
Lahren posted the photo of herself on Friday, the day before millions marched to protest gun violence and demand stricter gun control in the nationwide March for Our Lives protest . Perhaps that why the post struck a particular nerve—and why many did not hesitate to tell Lahren what they really thought of her armed fashion statement.
On Saturday, Lahren criticized the March for our Lives protests, t weeting , "Simply being anti-NRA is not a solution. March FOR something, not just against everything." On Monday, host of Comedy Centra's The Opposition Jordan Klepper took his turn at mocking Lahren, echoing sarcastically, “You have to march for something. Like, what is the March for Our Lives even for? Be clear!"
Previously, Lahren has been chewed out on the internet for a comment on kicking her dog , for sharing a doctored image of footballer Colin Kaepernick and for blaming the Tide Pod challenge on "the left."
