A dog who she loves, yet recently admitted to kicking "five times." Lahren clearly shared this info as a joke, but some people are taking it very, very seriously.

She shared footage of herself berating the poor pup.

Can you believe there's actually something Tomi Lahren has said that she's ashamed of? We honestly can't.
