Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren has filed a lawsuit against Glenn Beck and his media company, The Blaze, for wrongful termination, The Dallas Morning News reported on Friday.
The lawsuit filed in Dallas County claims that Lahren’s show was wrongly canceled by The Blaze following her controversial remarks in support of abortion rights on “The View.”
The suit states that Lahren was “understandably disappointed, saddened and in shock for being suspended for freely expressing her opinions, which certainly reconcile with what is the law of the land in the United States i.e., a woman’s constitutional right to choose and in no way inconsistent with any of [Lahren’s] obligations under the Employment Contract.”
Lahren’s comments on abortion sparked a wave of backlash from conservatives around the county accusing the Blaze host of being inconsistent in her beliefs.
“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,” she said during her appearance on “The View.”
