The Inside Story Of How Tomi Lahren Flamed Out At The Blaze

Facts continue to surface indicating that Lahren’s firing from The Blaze were not all about her comments on abortion…

By Peter Hasson, Daily Caller:


Before she ever set foot on ABC’s “The View,” Tomi Lahren had used up all her good will (and then some) at The Blaze, the conservative media company founded by Glenn Beck.

That’s according to several sources with direct knowledge of the situation, all of whom spoke with The Daily Caller on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the issue. Lahren is currently suing, and being sued by, Beck and The Blaze, and the two parties recently agreed to a mutual non-disparagement agreement that legally prohibits The Blaze employees from publicly criticizing Lahren, and vice versa. The Blaze sent employees a reminder on Tuesday night to comply with the non-disparagement agreement.

Lahren’s recent appearance on ABC’s “The View” where she referred to pro-life conservatives as “hypocrites” was just the final straw in her relationship with The Blaze, the sources said. The Blaze pulling from the air the controversial 24-year-old host was a long time coming, due as much to her behavior off camera as on.

Lahren, who did not reply to TheDC’s interview request, treated staffers and floor workers with contempt and disdain, seemed to enjoy provoking her colleagues and ultimately appeared to care more about causing controversy — whether good or bad — than she cared about being honest, sources said.

She often butted heads with other BlazeTV personalities and seemed jealous when others received public attention. Lahren seemed to especially dislike BlazeTV host Dana Loesch, and would avoid her at all costs — even refusing to enter the makeup room if Loesch was present. Loesch declined to comment for this story.

Lahren and another popular BlazeTV host, Lawrence Jones, often butted heads as well. After the Dallas police shooting last summer, Lahren compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK, writing on Twitter: “Meet the new KKK, they call themselves ‘Black Lives Matter’ but make no mistake their goals are far from equality.”

Lahren and Jones, who is black, were seen heatedly arguing about the statement, which Lahren eventually deleted from Twitter.

Jones, who declined to comment for this story, wasn’t the only one rubbed the wrong way by Lahren’s comments about black people, sources said. Several others at the company grew irritated with her over the way she handled racial issues.

“Even when you wanted to give her a chance, she would go out of her way” to make people mad, one person said. “It’s like she got a high off of creating a hostile work environment.
