Tomi Lahren — the diehard conservative commentator known for criticizing Black Lives Matter — was just suspended from her job at The Blaze.
Lahren’s firing comes on the heels of her remarks in support of abortion on Monday, in which the 24-year-old heroine of the extreme right went on The View and made her views public.
“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 told the panel. “”I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say, ‘I’m for limited government, but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.'”
Abortion is one of the more hot-button emotional issues for conservatives, with 6 out of 10 saying in a survey by Pew Research that abortion should be criminalized in nearly all instances. 36 percent of conservatives surveyed said that abortion should be illegal in all cases, including for rape and incest.
The Blaze is one of the most popular right-wing websites in the U.S., ranking as the 750th most-visited website in the U.S., according to traffic measuring site Alexa. The site has suspended Lahren’s segment, “Tomi,” for at least a week, though The Hill reported that Lahren could be out of a job by September.
