Love her or hate her, Tomi Lahren makes a splash wherever she goes. Sometimes though, a splash gets rendered on her. The conservative FOX News contributor was grabbing brunch with her mother and some family this past weekend when, on the way out, an anonymous woman chucked a full glass of water at her.
Sources close to Tomi say the hurling was completely unprovoked.

A video went viral of the Fox News contributor being verbally cursed out by diners including the drink being thrown.
Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman! @foxandfriends

Many among blue-check Twitter came to Lahren’s defense, including surprisingly Kathy Griffin.
I couldn’t disagree more with @TomiLahren, but I don’t think it’s cool to resort to physical actions to make your point.

You don’t have to like or respect Tomi Lahren to realize this is deplorable behavior that should be condemned by all sides. https://t.co/kJ4X1Fk8cQ

Everyone who follows us knows that we are no @TomiLahren fans, we believe she is bad for the conservative movement, stands for nothing, and has nothing to offer.
But this is wrong and disgusting! End of story. https://t.co/VrbC8I3AaQ

@TomiLahren I may not agree with a lot of views you have but I enjoy the fact that you have them and I live in a country where you are allowed to do so.
Keep doing you boo.

Can’t stomach her but this behavior doesn’t work… we need to elevate our position not throw drinks at her. Nah.

NO ONE has the right to throw a drink in ANYONE’s face, not even @TomiLahren as much as I get how much you dislike her, this is America b/c everyone can live freely regardless of what they say about anything. #FreeSpeech #2WayStreet

Lahren took to Twitter Tuesday even to express her gratitude for the support, “even from those who normally dislike” her.
I appreciate the words of support- even from those who normally dislike me. Free speech is a gift- no need to resort to that kind of attack. I’ll discuss the restaurant incident on @foxandfriends tomorrow morning.
