Lahren claims she was fired after revealing she supports abortion rights. She is now seeking to regain control of her Facebook page, where she has millions of followers. A spokeswoman for The Blaze, however, told BuzzFeed News she’s still an employee.
Tomi Lahren, the popular conservative talk show host, is suing Glenn Beck and The Blaze for allegedly firing her after she publicly revealed she was supports abortion rights.
Lahren claims in a lawsuit filed Friday in a Dallas court that she was told to stay quiet in an effort for the conservative publication to “sanitize” her comments and firing. The 24-year-old said she was not allowed to talk about being suspended from the network and was locked out of her Facebook page, which has millions of social media followers.
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.
“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 spokeswoman said in the statement.
After the filing on Friday, Lahren posted a thinly veiled comment about the lawsuit on Twitter.
