On Friday, Tomi Lahren filed suit against Glenn Beck and The Blaze stating that she was fired because of her pro-choice stances.
The lawsuit, filed in Dallas County District Court against Glenn Beck and The Blaze, alleges that the cancellation of her show on The Blaze was due to her pro-choice comments made on The View. Lahren states that she was told to “remain silent” about her termination.
The Blaze issued a statement, provided by Goldin Solutions, stating that Lahren was still an employee of the company:
“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.”
Lahren, the 24-year-old contentious conservative political commentator, appeared on The View in March where she made comments stating that she couldn’t support the government in deciding “what women should do with their bodies.”
“I can sit here and say that, as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.” – Tomi Lahren
The lawsuit alleges that Lahren was contacted by HR representatives of The Blaze and told that she had been suspended indefinitely. Shortly after that, HR allegedly told Lahren that her employment had been terminated and that she was to “remain silent” about the matter.
Lahren also issued this statement via Twitter on Friday:
The Lawsuit also alleges that Beck and other former colleagues at The Blaze pushed a public campaign to tarnish Lahren’s name.
Lahren’s contract was set to expire with The Blaze in September 2017.
