Tomi Lahren, the fiery young conservative personality known for her shoot-from-the-hip style of political commentary, has sued her former boss, Glenn Beck, and his media firm for wrongful termination after she said she was pro-choice, according to media reports.
However, The Blaze canceled Lahren's show nearly immediately after she made the comments, according to the lawsuit, "presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct" until Lahren's contract expired September 30.
Tomi Lahren isn't going down without a fight - especially when her Facebook page is involved.
The 24-year-old pundit's employer imbroglio started when she appeared on the ABC show and told the hosts that being for limited government, she did not think that lawmakers should control a woman's reproductive choices.
In the 27-page lawsuit filed Friday in Dallas, Lahren's attorney said nothing in his client's employment contract prohibited Lahren's comments on "The View". It hasn't had a new post since March 19.
Boeing Co. says it signed new $3B deal with Iranian airline
It comes on top of a December deal by Iran Air, the country's flag carrier, for $16.6 billion with Boeing for 80 passenger planes. Boeing has not backed off its commitment to these sales, despite fierce opposition in Capitol Hill and now in the White House.
Although the circumstances of Tomi Lahren's exit from TheBlaze are obviously unusual, that she is moving on from Glenn Beck's company should really come as no surprise.
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.
The Blaze hasn't commented to any outlets on the lawsuit. The lawsuit claims that TBI employees "stretched yellow caution tape spelling an "X" on her dressing room door following her suspension. The Blaze terminated her work email account and supervisors cut off communication with Lahren, according to the lawsuit.
Lahren, whose footprint on the internet has grown immensely with President Donald Trump's rise to power, also jabbed Beck's public stature, claiming TheBlaze's actions were motivated by "specific intent to inflate" his profile "from what has become a mediocre following". "Plaintiff has literally millions of followers on social media, she uses social media to interface with her audience, and, as a proximate cause of Defendants' wrongful interference with this medium of communication, Plaintiff is being irreparably harmed, she has no adequate remedy at law, and she is entitled to a temporary and permanent injunction".
