Lahren’s show is suspended for at least one week starting Monday, according to TheDC’s sources. A source with direct knowledge of the situation previously told TheDC that Lahren’s contract with the company goes until September, but that she may leave the company before then.
Lahren’s inflammatory style placed her at odds with other employees at The Blaze, as previously reported. Tensions were high between Lahren and her coworkers at The Blaze even before she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites in an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
In her appearance on The View, Lahren said she is pro-choice and called pro-life conservatives hypocrites, saying, “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’s denouncement of pro-lifers sparked a backlash from her coworkers, as well as other prominent conservatives.
In her typical adversarial style, Lahren fired back at critics on Twitter, saying, “I speak my truth. If you don’t like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.”
Soon after Lahren’s tweet, a reporter at The Blaze, Kate Scanlon, tweeted, “There is no ‘my truth.’ There is only the truth.”
On Monday, founder of The Blaze Glenn Beck–in an unusual move–played a clip of Lahren seemingly flip-flopping on the abortion issue on his radio show. He also argued against Lahren’s stance that pro-life conservatives are hypocrites.
