Lahren negotiating with The Blaze over control of Facebook page


Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren says she’s in talks with The Blaze over control of her popular Facebook page that has more than 4 million followers.

Lahren was reportedly permanently banned from the conservative news outlet earlier this month. The Blaze owns her Facebook page, and founder Glenn Beck doesn’t want to relinquish it, according to TMZ.

But Lahren tells The Hill that “negotiations are ongoing.” 

{mosads}The 24-year-old University of Nevada, Las Vegas grad was removed from the network after appearing on ABC’s “The View” and revealing she opposes laws against abortion, saying she’s against the government dictating anything from gun rights to what women do with their bodies.

“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 said at the time.

Her program, “Tomi,” was reportedly suspended for a week beginning on March 20. The Blaze never made an official announcement or provided a reason why the show was pulled for the week. But Beck took to Twitter to question whether Lahren, whom he hired in 2015, is intellectually honest.

On March 20, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.”

“I’m human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker,” she wrote.

Beck, a former Fox News host, shot back at Lahren: “Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian,” he wrote, while adding the hashtag #intellectualhonesty.

A recently created Facebook page called “The Real Tomi Lahren” has already amassed more than 20,000 followers. Lahren told The Hill that the page is fake. 

Lahren’s contract reportedly runs until the end of September. 

The Hill has reached out to The Blaze for comment.
