Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, better known as 21 Savage, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Sunday on allegations that he overstayed his visa after coming to the United States from Dominica, a commonwealth of the United Kingdom.
Lahren shared the news with a reference to 21 Savage’s popular track “Bank Account.”
Cardi B, born Belcalis Almánzar, quoted Lahren’s tweet, warning her to not “make me get my leash” after recently threatening to “dog walk” the Fox Nation Host.
Lahren called the joke “very original.”
She then proposed that Cardi B could agree with her that “our immigration system is broken.”
“Here’s something maybe we can agree on, our immigration system is broken,” Lahren tweeted. We need to keep our country safe while also making sure people who work hard, contribute and don’t leech off the system are able to LEGALLY immigrate here. I’m a fan of @21savage and I’m a fan of yours.”
This is not the first time that Lahren and Cardi B have feuded on Twitter.
In January, the Bronx-based rapper told Lahren she would “dog walk” her after Lahren sarcastically called the performer “the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats.”
Cardi B appeared on Instagram Live earlier in the month to blast Trump over his border wall demands. She later also recorded a video expressing solidarity with federal workers who went without pay during the government shutdown.
Nicki Minaj also called out Lahren for her tweet making light of 21 Savage’s arrest.
Lahren responded that ICE was following the law by doing their job of deporting immigrants in the country illegally.
She also said that her “ancestors did discover America.” She did not directly respond to Minaj’s question about being Native American or clarify what she meant by discovering.
