Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren may have burned a bridge at TheBlaze, according to a new report.
Page Six is reporting that Lahren is “permanently banned” from TheBlaze TV, where she hosted Tomi, a daily political talk show.
Lahren had earlier been suspended for a week after comments she made on The View.
“I’m pro-choice, and here’s why,” Lahren said then. “I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that loves the Constitution. I’m someone that’s for limited government. So 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.”
After some incendiary back-and-forth with TheBlaze owner Glenn Beck, Lahren was suspended. However, she tweeted that she would not take back her comments. Beck also dug in on his position against abortion.

Lahren told The Hill she is unable to comment about her future.
On Sunday, she posted an enigmatic tweet saying, “Never do the envy, jealousy and insecure stuff. Be the hustler, the well-wisher, the go-getter. #TeamTomi.”

She also wrote a lighthearted tweet about her appearance on the show during her week’s suspension.

This life can be lonely. Thank you to those-on all sides of the political spectrum-for the support. Agree/disagree, it means the world. ❤🇺🇸

In its reporting on Lahren’s departure, Page Six claimed TheBlaze has fallen on hard times, saying its website traffic was “29 million unique visitors per month in 2014, and only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017, for a loss of more than two-thirds of its traffic.”
Beck did not offer a public statement about Lahren as of early Monday, but Page Six quoted what it said was an unnamed “Beck insider.”
“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” the source said.
“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country. He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice,” the source also told Page Six.
