Glenn Beck fires back against Tomi Lahren

Glenn Beck fires back against Tomi Lahren

On April 7th, Lahren sued Beck claiming she was sacked for remarks she made on The View.

The prolonged, tragic-ish fall of former The Blaze correspondent Tomi Lahren is now getting even more prolonged and tragic-ish, as she is now being countersued by her old employer and the site's founder Glenn Beck for breaching her contract.

Lahren said TheBlaze's human resources director told her within days of her abortion comment that she was suspended indefinitely because of her opinion, and she was sacked days later.

The 24-year-old known for her unpopular views when it comes to politics and social justice issues is now in limbo career-wise.

According to documents filed in Dallas civil court, lawyers for The Blaze said Lahren had a history of insubordination.

TheBlaze acknowledged that the pro-choice comments made on The View are a "drastic departure" from previous statements Lahren had made on the matter, but said issues with Lahren's behavior date back more than a year.

However, the countersuit asserts, Lahren's employment agreement with The Blaze "remains in full force and effect", and is still being paid by the organization. Lahren was urged to "go dark" on social media, yellow caution tape was stretched over her office like in an episode of "CSI", and her corporate email was turned off.

It is obvious now that during her shows, Lahren said what the audience wanted to hear and got paid for it.

"I'm gonna take the advice of Wale and just smile", she wrote on Twitter, adding a smile emoji and the 100 emoji.

Lahren was recently the host of her own show on Glenn Beck's conservative online platform, The Blaze.

The suit does allege that TheBlaze has taken control of Lahren's Facebook page and refuses to give her access to her 4.2 million followers.

Last month, Lahren, right, revealed she was pro-choice in an interview on the The View.

Lahren, 24, doesn't specify Beck's misconduct, but it's clear she wants out of her contract, which ends in September.

Lahren's attorney did not immediately return a request for comment.

Remember when Tomi went on The View and said, "I am someone that's for limited government, so I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government, but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies".

Lahren became very emotional as she discussed the fact she is still bound under contract, which means she can not find another job until her contract expires in September. At that point, you might be fired, but you won't be allowed to say "fired". Her comments were shocking and disappointing because they demonstrated Lahren was uninformed and unprepared to speak on those issues.
