While Tomi Lahren has been suspended from her show on TheBlaze, the controversial host just landed a speaking gig at East Carolina University in April. Lahren will address ECU’s chapter of Turning Points USA on April 17.
Tomi Lahren, who became famous as part of Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze, just became the center of a major controversy after she announced on ABC’s The View that she supports abortion rights.
Lahren, who has reportedly been at odds behind-the-scenes with Glenn Beck for awhile for her support of President Donald Trump, has also made viral videos slamming Black lives Matter and liberal politicians.
Now, it’s being reported that Lahren’s pro-abortion views will be the last straw, and she’s about to be let go:
Lahren, who did not return an email seeking comment, appeared to fire back at critics on Twitter, saying, “I speak my truth. If you don’t like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.”
Soon after, a reporter at The Blaze, Kate Scanlon, tweeted, “There is no ‘my truth.’ There is only the truth.”
Another reporter at The Blaze, Kaitlyn Schallhorn, tweeted, “Even Hillary Clinton didn’t call pro-life conservatives hypocrites.”
Beck retweeted a video on Twitter that criticized Lahren for flip-flopping on the abortion issue. He previously appeared to take a shot at Lahren on Twitter after she came out in defense of Milo Yiannopoulos.
Lahren is under contract with The Blaze through September, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, although she could be out even sooner.
“The chances of her being brought back [in September] were pretty near zero before yesterday,” the source said. Whether Lahren remains at the company until September is “up in the air,” according to the source, who added that Lahren is likely “talking to other people who might be willing to buy out her last six months.”
Lahren’s name has previously been floated as a possible hire for Fox News, whose two most prominent female hosts, Megyn Kelly and Greta van Susteren, left the network within the last year.
Beck did not return an email seeking comment regarding Lahren’s future at The Blaze.
When asked if Lahren was on her way out, Leon Wolf, managing editor of The Blaze, replied, “No comment.”
It’s clear that defending unborn babies is a key issue for conservatives, which is why Tomi Lahren’s view is so unacceptable. A respect for life is a key conservative principle, and there’s no room for compromise.
