They’re savage! Cardi B and Nicki Minaj put their feud aside to come for Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren in defense of rapper 21 Savage. On Sunday, February 3, 21 was arrested by ICE officials and is currently facing deportation, and Tomi took to Twitter to make fun of the 26-year-old rapper’s current situation — even though she admits she’s a fan of his music and previously posted a video of her rapping along to one of 21 Savage’s hit songs.
“I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya,” Tomi, 26, wrote on Twitter — using the lyrics to 21 Savage’s hit song “Bank Account” to poke fun at him. Cardi, 26, quote-tweeted Tomi and added her response, “Don’t make me get my leash.” Cardi referenced a comment she made about Tomi last month where she threatened to “dog walk” the media personality on Twitter amid their heated social media feud.
Nicki, 36, quote-tweeted Tomi and wrote, “Your obsession [with] our culture is scary, to say the least. I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing [at people] getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn [sic] clown.”
But Cardi and Nicki weren’t the only one upset by Tomi’s comments. 21 Savage fans flooded her mentions, reposting a resurfaced clip from Tomi’s Instagram Story where she rapped along to “Bank Account.” “Stop hating acting like you weren’t rapping along to his lyrics on your Instagram Story,” one fan wrote, and another responded, “You literally sang his music???!!!” Tomi responded to the backlash, writing, “Never said I wasn’t a fan of his music!”
As In Touch previously reported, 21 Savage (real name: Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) was arrested by ICE officials who claim he’s actually from the United Kingdom who is in the United States illegally after overstaying a visa. 21 Savage’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, said in a statement to In Touch on Monday, February 4: “We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in this country, especially in Atlanta, Georgia, and is actively working in the community — leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”
