Beyonce's Super Bowl Performance
Lahren caught plenty of flak when she criticized Beyonce's performance at Super Bowl 50. "Even the Super Bowl halftime show has become a way to politicize and advance the notion that black lives matter more," Lahren said.
Lahren took serious issue with Jesse Williams' BET Awards acceptance speech, in which he spoke of police brutality toward black Americans. "I saw a lot of talent on that stage, but at the same time a whole lot of victimhood," she said.
Lahren blamed President Obama for the Dallas shooting that left five police officers dead and nine others injured. "Eight years later and we are more divided than ever," she said.
Donald Trump Protesters
After millions took to the street to protest the election of Donald Trump, Lahren said, "A bunch of sore losers occupying a space is called a tantrum."
Trevor Noah Appearance
The two sparred over protests to Donald Trump’s presidential election victory and the Black Lives Matter movement. It probably didn’t help that Lahren previously compared the latter to the KKK. Lahren claimed she doesn’t “see color,” which drew a laughing-gasp from the Comedy Central crowd.
Here's a closer look at Lahren's debate with Noah.
Suspended from "The Blaze"
Lahren was fired from her job at Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" in April after she revealed in an appearance on "The View" that she is pro-choice when it comes to abortion. She then sued her former boss for wrongful termination.
Interview with Jazz Jennings on Transgender Rights
In August, Lahren sat down with the star of TLC's "I am Jazz" to discuss transgender rights and bathroom bills. She asked Jennings if, when she was in second grade using the girls' restroom, others at school thought she was a "pervert."
After violent white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia in August, Lahren posted a video on Facebook denouncing liberals who she says blame all Trump supporters for the deadly chaos. "It’s this phony identity politics that lost you the election. The average Trump supporter is not a Nazi or white supremacist," she said.
