DALLAS, May 2, 2017 – Conservative icon Tomi Lahren and ‘The Blaze’ founder Glenn Beck have reached a settlement over Lahren’s alleged wrongful termination.
Tomi Lahren was booted from her ‘Tomi’ program after she appeared on ABC’s ‘The View’ where she said she was in favor of abortion rights. Tomi filed the suit on April 7.
Part of the terms of the settlement requires Lahren to remove videos she made for ‘The Blaze’ from the Facebook page and return them.
“I am thrilled to walk away from this with my freedom and Facebook page. I am grateful to my fans for their continued support through this storm,” Lahren told Fox News.
The settlement also allows Lahren to exit her contract before it expires in September and keep her 4.3 million followers on Facebook. In response to Lahren’s original suit, Beck filed a countersuit citing several complaints made against Lahren including “inappropriate” treatment of the floor crew, rejecting advertisers without explanation, and complaining about the network.
Lahren released a statement through her lawyer saying,
“Ms. Lahren is relieved to have this litigation behind her. She looks forward to connecting with her audience and fan base on the pressing political issues facing our country in the days to come.”
Following the settlement, The Blaze released a statement.
“The Blaze is pleased to announce that the relationship with Tomi Lahren has concluded,” “Ms. Lahren will continue to have access to her social media accounts as has always been the case.”
Following the cancellation of her show Tomi Lahren has taken to Facebook Live and other social media platforms delivering her thoughts on various topics including the recent cancellation of Ann Coulter’s appearance at Berkeley University.
Lahren posted a video on her Facebook page on Monday, thanking her fans for their support during the lawsuit. With the settlement behind her, Lahren said she can look to the future and learn from this experience.
