Tomi Lahren Admits: I Kicked My Dog 5 Times During Live ‘Fox & Friends’ Appearance (Video)

The Fox News contributor says in an Instagram story that her dog Kota earned the beating for chewing on a bone too loudly while she was on air

Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren admitted Wednesday to kicking her dog “five times” because she was bothering her during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” this morning.

“Why don’t you tell the world what you were doing during my entire “Fox & Friends” hit,” says Lahren in an Instagram story. “Oh I know, chewing on her damn bone as loud as she possibly could. So I had to kick her about five times during the show.”

The dog, Kota, did not appear to be in any physical danger at the time of filming and wagged its tail as Lahren recounting the beating.

Kota has often been featured on Lahren’s Instagram account.

Kota and I. Famous on the Internet. Lean with it. Rock with it. Xoxo. #Teamtomi #Kota #makeyoumissme

A spokesperson for Fox News did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

It’s not the first time Lahren’s Instagram stories have made news. In an earlier story in January, Lahren made headlines calling Rep. Joe Kennedy III  “that little limp dick” and also opined that he looked “a helluva lot like pre-Caitlyn Bruce Jenner?”

Lahen later apologized for her remarks on Twitter.

“My comments on my personal Instagram about Kennedy’s response were inappropriate and I take full responsibility for that. I got too upset. I sincerely apologize,” she said at the time.
