Tomi Lahren has had an abundant share of drag sessions from the Internet for obvious reasons, but this one takes the cake and, unfortunately, involves one of hip hop’s most seasoned magnates, Master P.
Lahren sat the No Limit Records founder down to chat all things — you guessed it — race. In a teaser for the Fox Insider exclusive, one particular part of the interview raises eyebrows when the two arrive at the topic of Colin Kaepernick and the NFL protests, also known as the #TakeAKnee movement.
In typical Tomi fashion, she asserts that she likes to “attack these issues head-on” beginning with Kaepernick’s actions that she alleges “hurt” the military community.
“These are professional athletes that make a lot of money, and they gotta play a sport. Whatever their religion, or what they believe in—that’s on them,” Master P responds. “And, I feel like, the only way that what they believe in is really going to change is through ownership. And I say it all the time: If you don’t own nothing, you gotta play by the rules.”
He goes on to explain that “we love America, we love the flag, this is one of the greatest countries in the world,” and herald Kaepernick for his leadership.
“I can respect that he truly believes in something and he lost his job for what he believed in,” P said. “He should still be in the NFL right now.”
Perhaps P's commentary on police brutality is far more brow-raising when Lahren mentions her disagreement with the “epidemic” that is minority protests against police brutality. P informs her that he believes there are “good police and bad police,” and makes a pretty questionable statement about the emotional factors of police aggression.
“I don't get caught up with the police, even if some of them are overdoing it,” he said. “Maybe they had a bad day. I say, you know what, I put my trust in God and I just gotta do what's right.”
But while the two came to agree that they hope more polarizing opinions can be settled by way of sit-down dialogue, the Internet’s rather divisive community is coming together on one declaration for Master P: Get Out.

Sorry Tomi sitting down with Master P doesn’t mean that you get credit or that you understand black people. pic.twitter.com/6NYXtClJ9O— Jacqueline (@JackieGotSober) October 30, 2017
I'd love to see Master P get beat by the cops and say hey maybe they had a bad day.— Gem. (@PettyDeli) October 31, 2017
If a Black woman stood in front of a racist White man with a smile on her face, how would Black men respond? pic.twitter.com/5OaD0wkmd7— Arkee E. 🤴🏿 (@snacktavist) October 31, 2017
