Lahren claimed last month she was ousted from the network because she spoke out in favor of abortion rights during an appearance on ABC’s “The View.” Beck and the Blaze later countersued, alleging her show, “Tomi,” was pulled from the air because she had a long track record of insubordination.
Under the settlement, Lahren will be released from her employment contract, as the Dallas Morning News reported.
In response, Beck said on his radio show he pulled Lahren because she hadn’t done enough to justify her position and because she had insulted conservatives by using the word “hypocrite.” “The ideas are what are important,” Beck said.
In her lawsuit, filed in Dallas County court, she said the Blaze “embarked on a public smear campaign,” attacking her and “chastising her political views and opinions in a clear attempt to embarrass, humiliate, and undermine” Lahren’s brand.
She said the network blocked access to her Facebook page A week later, Beck and the Blaze fired back in a countersuit, alleging Lahren was suspended not because of her abortion remarks but because of her temperament.
