Tomi Lahren is suing her former boss and workplace, Glenn Beck and The Blaze, for wrongful termination.
The lawsuit comes after Tomi & her show were pulled from The Blaze due to her pro-choice comments on ‘The View.’
Lahren, who is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and arguably one the most notable names at The Blaze other than Beck himself, was suspended — along with her show — for a week following those comments.
According to the suit, Lahren then received a call from The Blaze that “her employment was terminated” and “she would have no more shows.”
“She is very disappointed that she is having to pursue ligation,” Lahren’s lawyer, Brian Lauten, told CNN. “The fact of the matter is that she was wrongfully terminated. The contract simply doesn’t allow The Blaze to terminate her for expressing her personal opinion on the salient issue of abortion.”
A statement released by The Blaze said, “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 suit acknowledges that Lahren is still being paid, but alleges that The Blaze has done so “presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct under the Employment Contract.”
In the lawsuit, Lahren also accuses Beck and The Blaze of a “public smear campaign” against her, “chastising her political views and opinions in a clear attempt to embarrass, humiliate, and undermine [Lahren’s] reach to her audience on social media and elsewhere.”
Tomi, girl, didn’t you say Colin Kaepernick should lose his job for voicing his opinions? Make your way down the the unemployment office and have a seat!
