Tomi Lahren has been open about her opposition to feminism. But in light of recent news having to do with our nation’s Border Patrol, the conservative Fox News correspondent is making a miscalculated plea for feminist approval.

Taking to her Twitter account to congratulate Carla Provost for being the first woman to be named chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, Lahren was on her way to inciting a debate. It wasn’t until a follow-up tweet, however, that she received the type of heated responses she seemed to have been looking for.

“First female is named as chief of border patrol! Where is the feminist applause??” Lahren wrote to her over 1 million followers, before receiving thousands of reactions — including many from people who believe this doesn’t warrant applause.

Others pointed out that in Lahren’s poor attempt to get approval for Provost’s appointment, she forget to even mention Provost’s name.

While Lahren’s tweet definitely stirred up some animosity, at least it unified enough of her followers, who are now schooling her on feminism.
