Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was booed at a concert in Minneapolis over the weekend in front of a predominantly Somali crowd, with some in the audience telling her to “go home” and “get the f*** out of here.”
As Omar was introduced on stage with her husband, the crowd began to boo loudly.
Some other performers on stage told the audience, “don’t do this,” as they continued to boo Omar.
“Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, we don’t have all night,” Omar said as the crowd kept booing.
The concert appeared to be part of Somali Week in Minnesota’s Somali community, which can draw crowds of tens of thousands of people.
Omar was recently in the news after she claimed that religious freedom in America was “dead” after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a high school football coach who was told he wasn’t allowed to pray on the field in front of players.
“The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in,” Omar tweeted. “Religious freedom is dead in America.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded: “Every word of this is false.”
