Tomi Lauren Suspended From The Blaze

Glenn Beck's The Blaze has suspended host Tomi Lahren, according to a Monday report. 

Lahren’s program, "Tomi," is suspended for at least a week beginning Monday, multiple unnamed sources told The Daily Caller. 

On Friday, the publication also reported that Lahren may be out at The Blaze, "in September if not sooner" due to what it reported as rising tensions between the 24-year-old political commentator and other Blaze employees and hosts. 

Beck took to Twitter to question whether Lahren, whom he hired in 2015, is intellectually honest.

Lahren has been criticized in some conservative circles after a Friday appearance on ABC’s "The View" for revealing that she supports abortion rights.

“You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said.

On Monday, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.”

“I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker," she said.

Beck, a former Fox News host, shot back at Lahren: “Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian,” wrote Beck, while adding the hashtag #intellectualhonesty.

Lahren has 4.3 million followers on her Facebook page and more than 665,000 followers on Twitter.

The Hill has reached out to Lahren and Beck for comment.
