Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren took to Twitter Sunday with a few remarks regarding a message an Iranian filmmaker had read on his behalf at the Academy Awards.

Director Asghar Farhadi won his second Oscar for Best Foreign Film for "The Salesman" at the 2017 Oscars. But Farhadi chose not to attend the ceremony in protest to President Trump's travel ban placed upon people from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran.

Farhadi instead opted to have Iranian-American astronaut Anousheh Ansari read a politically-charged statement written on his behalf, denouncing the "inhumane law that bans entry of immigrants to the U.S."

The statement did not sit well some conservatives in favor of Trump's ban -- including right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren.

She snapped back at the response on Twitter, accusing the Obama administration of cozying up to Iran.

Some criticized Lahren for the strong reaction.

@TomiLahren you're a bit out of your depth talking about Iran.
@TomiLahren tbh, our interventionist foreign policy in the Middle East has created way more "terrorists" than Iran has produced.
@TomiLahren Why are you the way that you are?
@TomiLahren you are a horrible, despicable person
@TomiLahren this the whitest thing I've ever seen
@TomiLahren while the #Oscars are bring people together, Tomi is creating division
@dmburrows @TomiLahren the oscars are bringing the arrogant rich democrats together. They are so out of touch, it's ridiculous.
@TomiLahren that comment was unnecessary Tamale
@Nellimamita @TomiLahren tamales are too good to be associated with it 😭
@TomiLahren what nice christian values you have..
.@TomiLahren Learn something for a change. #Oscars https://t.co/uQydp3qy1w
@ScribeHard to learn you have listen. then, you have to listen to understand and not just respond. So she may be incapable of learning 🤷🏾‍♀️
Again, it's wonderful to know white supremacist Barbie is a fan of the arts @TomiLahren #Oscars #Oscars2017
@troynormandavis @TomiLahren When I can't take her entitlement anymore I read her old tweets particularly ab jobs https://t.co/3zpKmiNyfW
.@TomiLahren You know where else is nice? A world where people act decent to one another. Maybe one day you can visit.
@TomiLahren I thought you were going to boycott the Oscars you hypocrite snowflake.
@Jyard16 @dmburrows @TomiLahren you need to look on your own backyard it is the republicans that are out of touch
@TomiLahren your ignorance knows no bounds. I'm guessing that's your goal, to show your complete ignorance, lack of culture and class👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
@TomiLahren the fact that you don't question the current administration speaks volumes.
@TomiLahren maybe u should actually go to Iran before u make such ignorant comments & with this logic, america is a good training ground too
@TomiLahren it's okay, I totally understand why you'd be jealous🇮🇷 https://t.co/vYyF51jJAH
@TomiLahren how much does Donald give you under the table, good grief
@KingsForever94 @TomiLahren better question how much does Toni do under the table
@TomiLahren We give an Iranian filmmaker an Oscar. Who would've guessed that shocker. The #Oscars is the epitome of hypocrisy
.@TomiLahren I often think about converting to Christianity just so I can pray hard every day that you get a wicked case of shingles.
@TomiLahren Your childhood dream was to run a concentration camp, wasn't it?

While the comments about the Iranian filmmaker were some of her most pointed, they were far from the only aspect of the Oscars that Lahren criticized on Sunday night.

She mocked the Hollywood insiders over their opposition to the travel ban, voiced by more than one member of the audience that night, comparing the stringent ruled to those Oscar party attendees face.

She also handed out her own "Snowflake Awards" to Michael Moore and Meryl Streep.
