On Saturday, Somali musician Suldaan Seeraar performed his first ever show in North America at Minneapolis' Target Center. During the performance, Rep. Ilhan Omar joined Seeraar on stage, a move that was met with a less than favorable reaction from the crowd.

Widely circulated video shows Omar being introduced to the crowd, at which point cheers quickly turn to jeers and boos.

When Omar begins speaking, she is nearly drowned out by the sound of the mostly Somali crowd as they express their displeasure with the "Squad" member's attendance.

"How's everybody doing in Minneapolis?" she eventually asks, to which the crowd replies, "Boooo!"

Later on, members of the audience can be heard saying "Get the f*ck outta here!"

"Yo, I feel bad for her, though," another quipped.

All the while, others on stage, including Omar's husband Tim Mynett, tried to silence the crowd. Despite their best efforts, the booing continued.

The Post Millennial's Ari Hoffman discussed the incident during an interview on Newsmax.

"She has this other event she goes to right afterwards, where there's like thirty people there and they're cheering," Hoffman said, "but you can't come back from the thousands of people booing you."

"One can only hope this is a bellwether that people are finally done with 'The Squad' and her ilk."

Omar, originally from Somalia, has made a name for herself as a member of "The Squad," a group of Democrat congressmembers including AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Cori Bush.

The Squad claims to represent the next generation of Democrats, however many moderates reject their far-left ideology.

Recently, Omar questioned the legitimacy of the Supreme Court, calling for an "impeachment investigation" into conservative justices following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
