Fox News correspondent Tomi Lauren was dragged by the internet after she slammed Beyoncé for presenting former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick with the Sports Illustrated’s Muhammed Ali Legacy Award at the Barclays Center in New York City Tuesday night.

Lahren caused a stir online when she criticized Beyonce for presenting Kaepernick with the Legacy Award, which acknowledges athletes who use their celebrity to prompt change. 

"Police-hating Beyoncé presents police and America-hating Kappy with a 'legacy' award. This is how far we’ve fallen. Wow." she captioned a photo of the two at the award show. 

Twitter users promptly responded to Lahren’s tweet Tuesday night.

"You keep mentioning Beyoncé why? You'd think you have more important issues to worry about," one user wrote. "She's never said a single word or thing about you lady. Lmao."

Lahren has repeatedly criticized Kaepernick for kneeling last NFL season in protest of racial injustice during in-game performances of the national anthem. Kaepernick’s choice sparked a movement of NFL players conducting similar symbolic protests prior to games.

"Thank you Colin Kaepernick. Thank you for your selfless heart, and your conviction," Beyonce said in her presentation speech. "Thank you for your personal sacrifice. Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion only hope to change the world for the better. To change perception, to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color."

Kaepernick responded with an acceptance speech, citing the meaning behind his protests.

"I accept this award not for myself, but on behalf of the people. Because if it were not for my love of the people, I would not have protested. And if it was not for the support from the people, I would not be on this stage today. With or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people," he said.

The former quarterback has been inactive since he opted out of his 49ers contract during free agency in 2016. He has sued the NFL and team owners in October for allegedly plotting to keep him unsigned.
