Even before Tomi Lahren’s appearance at ABC’s “The View,” tensions were already high between the firebrand host and her co-workers at The Blaze.
After her show was suspended and eventually terminated following the comments she made in the “The View” where she described pro-life conservatives as hypocrites, Lahren sued her employer and founder Glenn Beck for wrongful termination.
Beck and The Blaze are firing back with a countersuit filed Monday.
According to several sources who have direct knowledge of the matter, Lahren “treated staffers and floor workers with contempt and disdain, seemed to enjoy provoking her colleagues and ultimately appeared to care more about causing controversy — whether good or bad — than she cared about being honest,” according to The Daily Caller.
She often has quarrels with other personalities in the media network like Dana Loesch and Lawrence Jones.
The Daily Caller reports:
She often butted heads with other BlazeTV personalities and seemed jealous when others received public attention. Lahren seemed to especially dislike BlazeTV host Dana Loesch, and would avoid her at all costs — even refusing to enter the makeup room if Loesch was present. Loesch declined to comment for this story.
Lahren and another popular BlazeTV host, Lawrence Jones, often butted heads as well. After the Dallas police shooting last summer, Lahren compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK, writing on Twitter: “Meet the new KKK, they call themselves ‘Black Lives Matter’ but make no mistake their goals are far from equality.”
Lahren and Jones, who is black, were seen heatedly arguing about the statement, which Lahren eventually deleted from Twitter.
People who worked with her noticed that she didn’t seem to care what people were saying about her as long as they are talking about her. She increasingly became more polarizing as her popularity grew, realizing that she could go viral by being divisive.
