Tomi Lahren sues Glenn Beck for wrongful termination

Tomi Lahren is suing Glenn Beck and The Blaze for wrongful termination, claiming that they violated her contract by ending her two-year agreement.

In the suit, Lahren alleged that the controversy surrounding her recent comments made on The View in which she admitted that she was pro-choice was part of “a public smear campaign” orchestrated to “inflate Beck’s profile, from what has become a mediocre following, all at [Lahren’s] expense.”

What’s more, she said that she has been “irreparably harmed” because she has been denied access to her Facebook, where she has millions of followers.

However, things get a little tricky for Lahren, in part because the Blaze has expressed a desire to keep paying Lahren, “presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct.”

“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,” a Blaze spokesman said.

What’s more, she might not have the legal grounds to say that her contract was violated when, in fact, it could be argued that she was the one in violation of a clause stating that Beck can fire her for “conduct or involvement in a situation that brings Employee into public disrespect, offends the community or any group thereof, or embarrasses or reflects unfavorably on TBI’s reputation.”

Considering The Blaze’s conservative following, it could be argued that her pro-choice stance does just that: offending the community or reflecting unfavorably on the Blaze.

“Her stance could offend a ‘group’ of the community especially their audience so that might be grounds to claim she breached the contract,” attorney Mike Delikat, who heads Orrick’s Global Employment Law Practice, told

Beck himself has not directly commented on the matter of the lawsuit.
