“I FEEL BETRAYED”: TOMI LAHREN ON BEING FIRED BY GLENN BECK

Tomi Lahren, the right-wing firebrand who had been a staple on Glenn Beck’s “TheBlaze,” is speaking out after filing a lawsuit against Beck and his online platform, alleging wrongful termination.

“My job is my life. This is my life. Without that, I feel lost,” Lahren told ABC News’ “Nightline.” “When your outlet is taken away from you and you don’t understand why and you’re so disappointed and you’re so blindsided, it hurts.”

Lahren, a rising conservative star at just 24 years old who attracted millions of online followers for her controversial and unapologetic critiques on her show, “Tomi,” filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in Texas on Friday. She alleges she was ousted from her show after she said publically she was in favor of abortion rights.

On March 17, Lahren appeared on ABC’s “The View,” and said, “I’m pro-choice, and here’s why: I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies… stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body as well.”

Her comments launched a social media firestorm, and when she got back home to Dallas, she said, the other shoe dropped.
