Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren settled her lawsuit with Glenn Beck and his website The Blaze.


Lahren was fired from her show after making pro-choice comments on ABC’s The View. The pundit was not, however, terminated from The Blaze, and was still being held (and paid) under contract through September 30. The lawsuit sought to release Lahren from her contract, allowing her to seek employment with the site’s competitors.

Lahren was allowed to keep her popular Facebook page that was created for her by The Blaze, which has 4.3 million followers, but she must delete any posts that were created for the site. This includes her many short videos on politics, some of which have been viewed more than 67 million times.

The lawsuit charged The Blaze with breaking Lahren’s two-year contract agreement and starting a “public smear campaign” meant to “inflate Beck’s profile, from what has become a mediocre following, all at [Lahren’s] expense.”

“I am thrilled to walk away from this with my freedom and Facebook page,” said Lahren after the ordeal. “I am grateful to my fans for their continued support through this storm.” She also thanked her former employer “for the experience and for making me stronger. I am resilient and have come out of this stronger than ever. Everything happens for a reason. I stood my ground and always will.”
