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.

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.
Jay Z is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in American history but ol white supremacist Barbie only sees him as a former drug dealer— basic white dude (@eattheelites) August 13, 2019
really makes you think
If Jaz-Z is a former drug dealer, it's fair to say that Trump is a failed casino owner, adulterer who cheated on all 3 wives, "partied" with predator Jeffrey Epstein, dodged the draft & filed bank. 4x & was sued for discrimination by the DOJ!!— Karen Resists 💙🌊🌞🌊💙 (@marie5483) August 14, 2019
The hypocrisy is astonishing!! 😡
Hey Tomi does Tim Allen ring a bell. He has a show on FOX and he is a drug dealer that did time. Hmm Tim is white JayZ is black . I'm thinking Tomi this may be an issue for you. Remember Kamala? She is a POC. I'm seeing a pattern. Shameful no disgusting.— DoreenEIsAResister (@Mattsdoreen) August 14, 2019
Sounds like somebody is jealous that she doesn’t get her her own halftime show. Racism in interpretive dance— Jamie Clorox the Oval Office (@Twinmom0) August 13, 2019
Jay Z has done more positive things for this country than you ever have..— donaldtrumpnewstoday (@irishrygirl) August 13, 2019
Still curious how you reconcile your Christian faith with tweeting insults about people.— Laurie Crosswell (@lauriecrosswell) August 14, 2019
Yes FORMER dealer. He changed is life and became one of the richest most influential celebs on the planet. What have you done?— natasha honey (@natashahoney4) August 14, 2019
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.
