Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren said that compliance to stay-at-home orders is "starting to look a whole lot like willful slavery" in a tweet that has since been deleted.
Lahren posted a series of tweets expressing her support toward the minuscule anti-lockdown demonstrations that have cropped up in states like Michigan, Ohio, and North Carolina, among others. In the midst of her diatribe on how the ongoing stay-at-home orders have impacted the livelihood of millions of Americans, the Fox Nation host took it too far when she tweeted out the slavery comparison.
As is custom, Tomi received the typical backlash over her takes.
But this one was different. Since sensationalism is part of Tomi's brand, it's shocking to see that even she knows there is a line that she shouldn't cross. Her backtrack fittingly comes around the same time Fox News axed Diamond and Silk for questioning if the number of deaths from coronavirus among Americans was being inflated to make Trump look bad.
