Lahren is suing her former employer, The Blaze, alleging she was wrongfully terminated for her pro-choice views. She's suing for access to her social media accounts, which have over 4 million followers. Here's what she said:
“To my former employer, I would just say: Let me go,” she said in her first appearance after suing. “I’m deeply hurt by what has happened. I’m disappointed in what has happened. But if this is the way that it is, let’s just part ways — cleanly. I just want work and have the freedom to put my voice out there.”
The Blaze is countersuing Lahren, saying it hasn't fired her—it's just choosing not to air her show, which is allowed in her contract. Lahren's statements offended many conservatives who think pro-choice is incompatible with conservatism.
The Blaze cited a number of alleged issues it claimed to have with Lahren, like constant complaining with the floor crew, inappropriate on-air word choice, and comments from Lahren that were "uninformed and inconsistent."
"Lahren’s statements were offensive to many of TheBlaze’s supporters and followers because they imply that only a hypocrite would believe in the Constitution or conservative values but not be pro-choice," the lawsuit reads.
Others think Lahren deserves everything she's getting. Her views are offensive, blatantly racist and do not deserve to be defended. As a viral post puts it:
Just kidding. I don’t give a fuck. That bitch got what she deserved. I hope I never see her loud, hateful ass on my feed ever again. Go have a seat with fellow snowflake Milo Yanninazipolos. Also, anything that you read in the caption to get you to read this article is complete bullshit.
