Jay-Z just made headlines for forming "an entertainment and social justice partnership" with the National Football League, and it has Tomi Lahren outraged.

The conservative commentator took to Twitter shortly after the deal was announced and claimed the NFL hired someone who will help promote hatred of America and law enforcement officers.

“Jay-Z will be consulting with the NFL for the Super Bowl halftime show and other performances because apparently the league doesn’t hate America and law enforcement officers at a level satisfactory enough for the former drug dealer,” Lahren tweeted.

  1. This, of course, had many people clapping back at Tomi, Many of whom pointed out the horribleness of bringing up Jay-Z’s drug dealing past.

  2. Earlier this week, the New York Times spoke with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said the league is looking to put itself in the best position moving forward regarding entertainment.

    "We don't want people to come in and necessarily agree with us; we want people to come in and tell us what we can do better," he said. "I think that's a core element of our relationship between the two organizations, and with Jay and I personally."

    Jay’s Roc Nation is already involved in the league, representing numerous NFL stars, including New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley

    Jay-Z famously turned down an opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl LII halftime show. In the Carter’s 2018 song “Apes**t,” he addressed the matter, rapping: "I said no to the Super Bowl: You need me, I don't need you. Every night we in the end zone, tell the NFL we in stadiums too."

    Hov also wore a Colin Kaepernick jersey while hosting Saturday Night Live, further proving his allegiance to the former San Francisco 49er quarterback’s protest of American police brutality and criminal justice system.
