Conservative media company The Blaze has suspended political commentator Tomi Lahren, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller.
Lahren’s show is suspended for effect for at least one week starting Monday, according to TheDC’s sources. A source with direct knowledge of the situation previously told TheDC that Lahren’s contract with the company goes until September, but that she may leave the company before then.
Lahren’s inflammatory style placed her at odds with other employees at The Blaze, as previously reported by TheDC. Tensions were high between Lahren and her coworkers at The Blaze even before she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites in an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
After seeing all the flap this has caused, I can see why this is happening. Abortion is one of the major issues that conservatism is pretty cut and dry on. And to call every conservative who cherishes the Constitution a hypocrite just because we don’t believe that a woman has the right to murder her unborn baby? Yeah… that’s backlash that no one needs.
This is still a developing story, so there may be further updates. Stay tuned!
