Oliver Darcy writes: Fox News personality Tomi Lahren drew criticism for a reprehensible piece of debate commentary on Kamala Harris that she offered in a tweet Wednesday night, slurring Harris with the suggestion that Harris had used her relationship with Willie Brown to advance her career.
Lahren seemed to double down on her tweet, urging her followers to look into their relationship. I asked a Fox spokesperson if the tweet was in accordance with network standards, but did not hear back.
I did hear from several Fox employees who reached out to me on their own accord. “It makes me sick that I work for the same company as Tomi Lahren,” one Fox employee told me. “Mindblowing how we give this woman a job.” Another employee texted me the URL to Lahren’s tweet, calling it “unacceptable.” I reached out to the Harris campaign, which declined to comment…
Update: Lahren has now apologized: “I apologize for my comment on Kamala’s personal relationship. It was the wrong choice of words. There are many other things to take her to task for and I will stick to those.”
