Tomi Lahren has been hired to work for Fox News.
According to CNN, Lahren will mostly work as a contributor for Sean Hannity’s show, though she will also “work on digital product in development.”
The network announced her new role on Wednesday and said that she would make her debut on Wednesday’s edition of “Hannity” at 10 p.m. ET/PT. She will reportedly also offer comementary during opinion lineups on the network.
Finally, the "blonde and also racist" perspective will get a voice on Foxhttps://t.co/L0txlNA0KS

The controversial personality was fired earlier this year from Glenn Beck’s media company, shortly after she appeared on The View saying that she was pro-choice. Her other public statements have been just as polarizing.
She has compared Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan, suggested that back people who don’t condemn Black Lives Matter risk being shot by police, told former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick that he should be grateful for being adopted by two white parents after being abandoned by his black father, and suggested that her “most important” goal was to make white people less afraid of black people.
Predictably, the internet went into a furor over Lahren’s hiring, with comments like, “Finally, the ‘blonde and also racist’ perspective will get a voice on Fox,” and “They should be forced to label her ‘Tomi Lahren, Obamacare Recipient’ on every announcement.”
