Fox Nation's Tomi Lahren Claims Her Ancestors ‘Discovered America' After Nicki Minaj Calls Her A ‘Fkn Clown’ For Ridiculing 21 Savage

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren already has a Twitter feud going with rapper Cardi B, but on Monday the conservative commentator saw another rapper take shots via social media.

Nick Minaj responded to a tweet from Lahren where she poked fun at rapper 21 Savage for being arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers for overstaying his visa.

In Lahren's tweet, she quoted a portion of 21 Savage's song "Bank Account," saying: "I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya." The tweet also included a link to an article from Variety about his arrest.

"Your obsession w/our culture is scary to say the least. I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing @ ppl getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn clown," Minaj said.

Lahren responded about an hour later to tell Minaj that she didn't write the immigration law that led to 21 Savage being arrested.

"When you’re in the country illegally, you get deported. I didn’t write the law and neither did ICE. They enforce it. I hope @21savage is able to get an entertainment visa or become a citizen one day. P.S. My ancestors did discover America," Lahren said.

The exchange with Minaj played out hours after Cardi B retweeted Lahren and called back to a previous social media exchange where the rapper threatened to "dog walk" her. Lahren replied twice to Cardi B, telling her that her reply was "very original" before suggesting that maybe they could agree that the immigration system in America is "broken."

Neither Cardi B or Minaj have replied to Lahren's latest tweets. However, 21 Savage, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is being held without bail in a detention center in Georgia following his arrest on Saturday. He faces deportation in federal immigration court, Reuters reports.

“ICE has not charged Mr. Abraham-Joseph with any crime. As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like almost two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own,” Charles Kuck, the rapper's attorney, said in a statement to Reuters. "This is a civil law violation, and the continued detention of Mr. Abraham-Joseph serves no other purpose than to unnecessarily punish him and try to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States."

Kuck also said that the arrest is based on “incorrect information about prior criminal charges.” In 2014, 21 Savage was convicted of felony drug charges in Georgia.

ICE spokesman Brian Cox told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the rapper, a British citizen, entered the United States in July 2005. His work visa expired a year later.
