Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren has shared plenty of controversial opinions in the past, but she might be about to lose a lot of followers for her latest post!
On Monday night, the “Fox News” host shared a single snap teasing her toned abs to reveal that she is now a Mets fan. At least she has a good reason for it!
‘Fox News’ Host Tomi Lahren Is No Stranger To Controversy!
In her latest Instagram post, the “Tomi Lahren Is Fearless” podcast host shared a single snap of her posing in gray sweatpants and an orange Mets shirt that she pulled up to give fans a peek at her toned abs.
“I’m a METS fan now,” she wrote in the caption. “A huge congratulations to my husband @jparencibia44 on his new role as the Mets AAA bench coach. Big things ahead for him! I never got to watch him play so I can’t wait to cheer on the team he coaches!” She followed it up with the hashtags #mets, #syracuse, #jparencibia, #teamtomi, and #baseball.
J.P. Arencibia is a former professional baseball catcher who is currently serving as the bench coach for the Syracuse Mets. He previously played in Major League Baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers, and Tampa Bay Rays from 2010 through 2015. J.P. was previously married to country music singer Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry from 2014 to 2018. He and Tomi tied the knot last year.
In the comments, fans and famous friends had nothing but support for his new role. J.P. himself thanked his wife for her support, commenting, “Let’s go!!! Thanks for always supporting me in all that I do!”
Tomi and J.P. Tied The Knot In October 2022
Believe it or not, Tomi married the former MLB star only a few months ago. In June 2019, she actually took to Instagram to announce that she was engaged to her boyfriend at the time, Brandon Fricke.
They called off their engagement in 2020, and, in April, Tomi moved from Los Angeles, California, to Nashville, Tennessee.
In early 2021, rumors started to swirl that she was involved with fellow Fox broadcaster J.P. Arencibia. The two started to appear in photos on each other’s Instagram accounts in August 2021.
On September 25, 2021, Tomi appeared on an episode of “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” During the conversation, she finally confirmed fan speculation that she was engaged. The two tied the knot over a year later on October 21, 2022.
Tomi Lahren Catches Heat For Comments About Kyle Rittenhouse!
As The Blast previously reported, back in November 2021, Tomi was slammed on Twitter after she tweeted “justice has been served” in regards to the Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty verdict.
In the minutes following the jury’s decision, Tomi tweeted, “Justice has been served!! Not guilty!! God is good!!!”
“This is bigger than Kyle Rittenhouse, This is where the tide starts to change,” she continued. “The decent people of this country are tired of allowing it to be destroyed by thugs and miscreants. Your time is up!!”
“And if Biden cared about the people of Kenosha, he would send every federal agent there to arrest every thug and degenerate that tries to loot and riot tonight,” she added. “We shouldn’t put up with this bulls–t anymore.”
She even suggested that Rittenhouse should sue the government for “slander,” including President Joe Biden. “Kyle should spend the next year suing the absolute pants off of every news outlet and person, including our president, who slandered him!!” she tweeted.
The backlash to her Twitter thread came swiftly. “I’m sorry I can understand if he were in his home Protecting himself right or trying to protect his family. HE WAS STROLLING DOWN THE STREET WITH A LARGE A– GUN… all I want to know is if he were black would he receive the same verdict? Why is it so hard to answer it?” one person commented.
“This had nothing to do with God. It had more to do with being white,” another person tweeted. “It’s blatant white privilege. So anyone can now run around with an AR-15, shoot people, and call it self-defense.”
However, Tomi wasn’t done sharing her thoughts on the matter. She later tweeted, “Only in woke America would it be deemed a white privilege to defend yourself from other white people. Liberalism is a disease.”
