Glenn Beck Countersues Tomi Lahren: Abortion Remarks ‘Embarrassed’ TheBlaze

Glenn Beck countersued Tomi Lahren, who sued him and TheBlaze ten days ago for wrongful termination she alleged was a result of remarks in support of abortion. In a brief filed Monday, Beck and TheBlaze do address her statements on abortion, but claim Lahren was never fired from the network.

Instead, the countersuit alleges she was benched from being on the air due to bad behavior including Lahren’s mistreating of staff, and making public appearances without prior approval.

“Lahren’s word choices on air had to be addressed repeatedly for bordering on the profane,” the brief states. They also claim she was overheard complaining about the company, claiming one day she would one day own the network. Further, the suit alleges she violated her contract by publicly disclosing her wardrobe budget.

On April 7th, Lahren sued Beck claiming she was fired for remarks she made on The View.

“I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” Lahren told the hosts that.

The network asked the court to recognize Lahren still remains under contract at TheBlaze, to grant an injunction against her for breach of contract, and a restraining order against her making any public appearances or statements without TheBlaze’s approval.

On the abortion statements, the lawsuit says

“Lahren embarrassed the company and many of its staff and other personalities because her statements [on abortion] were uninformed and inconsistent.” Her comments—which were contradictory of her own previous statements on the subject—“offended” the network’s predominantly conservative audience and therefore “reflected negatively on TheBlaze’s reputation.”
