Tomi Lahren, the young, incendiary conservative commentator, is suing her former boss, Glenn Beck, and his media firm, The Blaze, for wrongful termination over her pro-choice comments.
According to Lahren's lawsuit, filed Friday in Dallas County, The Blaze cancelled Lahren's show after she made the controversial abortion statements last month on The View. But The Blaze wanted to keep paying Lahren, the suit says, "presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct" in breaking Lahren's two-year employment contract, which was to continue through Sept. 30.
Lahren's suit alleges that the hubbub surrounding her comments was "a public smear campaign" orchestrated to "inflate Beck's profile, from what has become a mediocre following, all at [Lahren's] expense."
The suit also says that The Blaze won't allow Lahren access to her Facebook page, where she has 4.2 million followers, which has "irreparably harmed" Lahren.
