Glenn Beck Is Now Countersuing Tomi Lahren And Calling Her "Uninformed"

TheBlaze maintains that it has been encountering difficulties with Tomi Lahren for at least a year because she was allegedly acting like a diva.

Considering Lahren's entire career is built on telling angry conservatives what they want to hear while looking perfectly manicured, Lahren's surprisingly liberal view was not received well.

But Beck and Blaze execs say Lahren hasn't actually been fired, and she continues to get paid. According to the suit, the company "had employment issues with Lahren for over a year". Instead, the company says the network chose to bench her from air after a slew of bad behavior including Lahren's mistreating of staff, and making public appearances without prior approval.

Also, let's not forget her appearance on "The Daily Show" where host Trevor Noah basically had a fact for every asinine thing that came out of Lahren's mouth.

After the comment went viral, Lahren and Beck squared off on Twitter over her new, pro-choice stance.

Though the company said in its filing that it respects its employees' freedom of expression, Lahren had flip-flopped on abortion, saying as recently as December that abortion rights advocates were "straight-up baby killers".

"Her comments on The View (which demonstrated a apparent flip-flop from opinions she had previously expressed) were simply the latest in a series of events that led The Blaze management to conclude that The Blaze did not intend to extend her contract beyond the end of its term in September 2017". "TheBlaze has never removed Lahren's access to the Facebook page and the only restriction of her use of it would be to abide by her contract and her nondisclosure agreement".

The countersuit alleges that the conservative firebrand abused the staff and violating her contract, according to CNN.

In the song, Wale rapped, "On behalf of Charlamagne, I'm sure he ain't trading sides / Maybe I should meet Tammy Lahren, I'll Lauryn Hill her / Train her; she miseducated anyway / Probably hate the color of my face". "Because Lahren is closely associated with The Blaze, her statements also reflected negatively on TheBlaze's reputation", the court documents read.

"TheBlaze is the owner and administrator of the Facebook page where content created and owned by TheBlaze was posted", the counterclaim states.

In the countersuit, filed in federal court in Texas, Beck and The Blaze rip Lahren as "inappropriate and unprofessional", as well as a "divisive" person who "created conflicts with other media personalities" at the organization.

Can we all just agree that both Glenn Beck and Tomi Lahren are going to be just fine after all the dust settles?

Another hearing is scheduled for two weeks, when witnesses will be called.
