UPDATE 7:27 P.M. EST: TheBlaze has fired back, with a rep saying, “It is puzzling that an employee who remains under contract (and is still being paid) has sued us for being fired, especially when we continue to comply fully with the terms of our agreement with her.”
Tomi Lahren just fired back at Glenn Beck in a HUGE way!
Weeks after being fired from his network TheBlaze, the controversial political pundit has decided to file a lawsuit against her former employer.

According to TMZ, she says Glenn’s termination of her contract wasn’t authorized under the rights of the deal. Additionally, she claims he, along with the company, launched a smear campaign after she came out on The View with her pro-choice beliefs.
The lawsuit explains it as:
“A clear attempt to embarrass, humiliate, and undermine [her] reach to her audience on social media and elsewhere… Beck is known for berating, belittling, and acting in a condescending and heavy-handed way and his treatment of [Tomi], in particular, is a case in point.”
As we previously reported, a sticking point in both parties’ negotiations was Tomi’s Facebook account, which has over four million followers, but is technically property of Beck and the company…
Only problem is the political commentator feels differently.
