Ms. Tina Lawson had to get some things off her chest after racist trolls — including conservative talking head Tomi Lahren — took to social media to pop off about Beyonce’s speech while presenting the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick at the 2017 Sports Illustrated Awards Tuesday night. 

“Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better,” Beyoncé said. “To change perception, to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color. We’re still waiting for the world to catch up. It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we’re protesting America.”

Tomi hopped online Wednesday morning to react to Queen Bey’s speech, saying: “Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a ‘legacy’ award. This is how far we’ve fallen. Wow,” Lahren tweeted, alongside a  photo of Beyoncé and Kaepernick during the event.
