Video footage shared on Snapchat shows an unidentified woman throw the glass of water at Lahren as she left the UNION rooftop bar in downtown this past Sunday.

In another video shared on social media, it shows Lahren confront the woman who threw the water and UNION patrons can be heard swearing at Lahren, calling her racist and shouting at her to get out.

She then left the restaurant with her mother, who was also involved in the argument.

Lahren was dining downtown having had a show at the nearby Pantages Theatre Saturday night.

A controversial figure for her strong views on immigration and pro-gun policies, Lahren received support on Wednesday from President Donald Trump, who watched her segment on Fox and Friends discussing the incident.

"I appreciate the words of support- even from those who normally dislike me," Lahren tweeted on Tuesday evening.

"Free speech is a gift- no need to resort to that kind of attack."

On Fox and Friends Wednesday morning, Lahren said she was "disheartened" by the incident, but added: "I'm tough. I can handle it."
