Tomi Lahren has proved time and again that she doesn't care what people think of her. She doesn't care if she says things so hateful and misinformed that most of the Internet piles on and proves her wrong. She doesn't care if she is wildly offensive and inappropriate. She gives no mind to the thousands upon thousands who are constantly trying to make her aware of the problematic language she uses and awful ideas of intolerance and hate she spreads. Tomi Lahren just doesn't care.
On Tuesday, December 5, the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year show took place in Brooklyn.

At the show, Colin Kaepernick was presented with a prestigious award: the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
The award honors athletes who demonstrate “dedication to the ideals of sportsmanship” and those “whose career in athletics has directly or indirectly impacted the world.”
To make matters even better, Beyoncé presented him with the award.

Yes, that’s right. Queen Bey, Fiercest Woman on the Planet, Mother of Dragons, Leader of the Universe Beyoncé honored Colin Kaepernick with the award.
It was a beautiful moment.
When Beyoncé and Colin Kaepernick shared the stage, it was almost too much power and coolness to handle.
They are both such influential voices in social activism and pop culture today.
Not everyone could handle the greatness that graced the stage that night. Among the people who were too overwhelmed was one Tomi Lahren.
Lahren, as you can see from her above tweet, isn’t quite what you’d call a fan of Colin Kaepernick.
She’s refused to understand what his protests actually stand for, and she shared this weird, awful photoshopped image.
So Lahren wasn't too kind when she found out he won a Sports Illustrated award, and she was even more frustrated when she found out that Beyoncé was the one to present it to him:
She tweeted about “police-hating Beyoncé” and oh boy did that prove to be a terrible mistake. You just can’t bash Beyoncé. You can’t! She’s objectively good.
Let’s see what Twitter had to say to Beyoncé-bashing Tomi Lahren…
