Former TheBlaze star Tomi Lahren gave an interview to ABC’s “Nightline,” which will air late Wednesday night, just weeks after being dismissed by the network founded by Glenn Beck after saying she is pro-choice on abortion, for the first time since filing a lawsuit against Glenn Beck and TheBlaze for wrongfully terminating her employment with the network.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Nightline,” she alleged that the network wrongfully terminated her. She is suing the network and Beck. In her lawsuit alleged that the right-wing outlet silenced her “presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct.” Speaking exclusively with ABC’s Nightline, Lahren said:
“To my former employer, I would just say: Let me go. Let me move on.”
She added: “I’m deeply hurt by what has happened, I’m disappointed by what has happened. But if this is the way that it is, let’s just part ways cleanly.” Lahren additionally said that she feels “lost” after having her outlet for “catharsis” stripped from her.
“I just want to work and put my voice out there and interact with my fans and my followers.
“This is my life. Without that, I feel lost.”
Tomi Lahren has more than 4 million Facebook likes, and her videos on the social media platform were frequently viewed by more than 1 million users.
