The picture is made to look like a Fox News screenshot in which the conservative commentator is discussing a fictitious holiday made famous by the hit sitcom Seinfeld. The news alert read: “Tomi: Obama Created Festivus To Destroy Christmas.”
Lahren, who obviously doesn’t know how to take a joke, got a little heated over this image and felt it was necessary to defend herself against all the critics who assumed it was real.
“You idiots think this is real? Have you nothing better to do than photoshop fake news? Get a hobby. Go for a walk. Do something. Good Lord,” she tweeted. “Does it not bother you to circulate a photoshopped piece of FAKE NEWS? Classy […] Do you realize you are circulating fake news? Not very professional [but] by all means please tell me how stupid you think I am.”
To be fair, Lahren has said plenty of dumb shit in the past, so it’s not really surprising that some people believed the doctored image was authentic. Even Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on Seinfeld, was fooled by the post.
What makes this whole situation even more amusing is that the image was reportedly created by the Seinfeld parody account @Seinfeld2000.
We suggest Lahren ask Santa Claus for thicker skin next Christmas.
