Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren is getting heat for disparaging Uber and Lyft drivers amid a strike that has those who work for the ride-sharing apps demanding better wages and more job security.

While prominent Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Kamala Harris have voiced support for striking drivers, Lahren is standing firmly on the other side of the picket line.

A week after butting heads on Twitter with Alyssa Milano over gun control, the conservative commentator lashed out at those protesting the working conditions at the ride-sharing apps. Her tweet accused drivers of being slovenly and foul-smelling, claiming that they work in their pajamas and have cars that “reek of body odor.” She also criticized them for seeking higher pay and a larger share of fares.

Some stood up for her, however. When a critic shot back that Lahren’s Uber rating would take a hit because of her remarks, a fan rose to her defense and suggested that she was too rich and successful to even use the app.
