Tomi Lahren‘s mother, Trudy, got into a heated argument with a group of girls who hurled a glass of water at her famous daughter during a hip-hop themed brunch.
Witness Devan Madison tells us he and a group of friends were at Union Restaurant in Minneapolis on Saturday where his friend was actually serving the Fox News pundit and her mother. He claims “My friend told me she [Tomi] was extremely rude and had a big attitude.”
We’re told when Lahren got up to leave the restaurant, a woman sitting at Madison’s table threw a glass of water on the conservative mouthpiece. Madison claims that “literally the entire restaurant started cheering.”
We spoke with the bouncer in the video, Jeremy Jackson (not that one), who said that Tomi claimed she saw the brunch group “scowling at her” on her way out of the eatery and said, “Just another day in the life” as she walked by them. That’s apparently when the drink was sent flying.
Patrons immediately took out their cell phones to record the aftermath while a “F**k that bitch” chant erupted in the background.
We’re told Lahren’s mother stepped in, confronted the group and attempted to grab the empty glass from the perpetrator’s hand, but the girl avoided her advances and repeatedly screamed “F**k Tomi!” at Trudy.
Jackson says he stepped in to break-up the altercation: “I said [to Tomi] ‘I’d like to separate you all if can please –’ and she responded, ‘You’re just going to kick me out for them throwing water? Unbelievable.'”
The bouncer says he attempted to explain to Lahren she was not being kicked out but rather separated so he could do his job. We’re told Tomi stormed out of the restaurant anyway and Jackson escorted the water-thrower out of the venue.
For her part, Tomi did not retaliate with the water throwing, nor did she really do anything in that specific instance to warrant the attack. It also does not appear the situation will be escalated any farther.
If you’re interested, Madison, who recorded audio the incident, has already mixed the anti-Tomi chants into a song:
