Early Wednesday morning, the Fox News contributor angered the Beyhive by sharing a photo of the pop star presenting former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award on Tuesday night.
Last year, Kaepernick began protesting racial injustice and police brutality by taking a knee during the singing of the national anthem at NFL games. He received the award for using his platform to bring awareness to the injustice and eliciting change.
"How far we've fallen was obvious November 8, 2016," a Beyonce supporter tweeted at Lahren.
Another wrote, "Beyonce and Kaepernick have been very clear that they respect the police. What they protest is the continued racial inequality and unjustified homicides of black men and women at the hands of too many officers."
Both Beyonce and Kaepernick are popular targets for Lahren, an outspoken conservative critic of just about anything liberal. The former Blaze personality, who rose to fame for offering her often viral "Final Thoughts," criticized Beyonce's 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show, because it paid homage to the Black Panthers movement and Black Lives Matter and featured all-black back-up dancers.
Earlier this year, Lahren also criticized the music superstar for speaking out against climate change during at a benefit for Hurricane Harvey relief. "Conservation efforts only apply to the little people," Lahren said on Fox News in September. "The rest of us are supposed to let our energy-producing communities shut down because Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Stevie Wonder have made climate change their default religion and onstage talking point."

Good to see you're drinking all of the #FauxNews Kool-aid these days. Beyonce & Kaepernick have been very clear that they respect the police. What they protest is the continued racial inequality & unjustified homicides of black men and women at the hands of too many officers.
Watch Bey catch some shit for giving a speech and awarding Kaepernick. I can already hear Tomi Lahren now. “Beyoncé, you presented an award to someone who did a disgusting and distasteful act against this country's flag.” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
