Tomi Lahren Says She Was Fired From “The Blaze” And Is Now Suing Glenn Beck
Tomi Lahren, the popular conservative talk show host, is suing Glenn Beck and The Blaze for allegedly firing her after she publicly revealed she was supports abortion rights.
Lahren claims in a lawsuit filed Friday in a Dallas court that she was told to stay quiet in an effort for the conservative publication to “sanitize” her comments and firing. The 24-year-old said she was not allowed to talk about being suspended from the network and was locked out of her Facebook page, which has millions of social media followers.
Lahren made the abortion comments last month on ABC’s The View, but the lawsuit is the first official claim that the commentator is no longer employed by the conservative outlet.
However, a spokeswoman for The Blaze told BuzzFeed News in a statement that the lawsuit is “puzzling” because the publication still considers Lahren an employee under contract.
“It is puzzling that an employee who remains under contract (and is still being paid) has sued us for being fired, especially when we continue to comply fully with the terms of our agreement with her,” the spokeswoman said in the statement.
After the filing on Friday, Lahren posted a thinly veiled comment about the lawsuit on Twitter.
Known for her fiery attacks on liberals, millennials, and Democrats alike, Lahren surprised many fans…
