Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren took a subtle dig at what she called her “former employer” as she refused to say the name of The Blaze during an interview on Friday.
It happened during her appearance on “Louder with Crowder,” after the host asked Lahren about what happened between her and Beyonce after the former host on TheBlaze employee called the singer out on her Super Bowl performance. (RELATED: Tomi Lahren Settles Lawsuit With The Blaze)
“I decided to speak out against Beyonce and you know saluting the black panthers…you know the giant FU to law enforcement,” Lahren explained. “I decided to speak out about that in my ‘Final Thoughts’ and she seemed to notice. And she [Beyonce] actually asked to buy those final thoughts and use them on her world tour. We said no.”
Crowder asked her why and he said she could have made some money with it.
“Well I wouldn’t have, my former employer would have,” the commentator said. “That’s another story.”
“No, we don’t mention former employers,” Crowder interjected.
“Nope…we don’t even know about that,”Lahren answered. “Who are they? Most people actually don’t know them.”
Lahren said she also needed to explain what The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson reported about her asking staff to heat up “her butt warming pad” in the microwave before each show.
“I was always cold in my former place of employment,” Lahren said. “So instead of demanding it be warmer…I thought how can I best acclimate to the situation. So, what did I do? I used a heated lava pad that people use at football games. There was a butt pad, but to say that this made me a diva…I sat on that butt pad because I was so cold. I mean if that makes me a diva, I guess I’m a diva.”
The commentator was taken off the air after her appearance on “The View” where she called pro-life conservatives “hypocrites,” which reportedly contradicted previous statements she had made.
As previously reported, there were a lot of other things going on behind the scenes and her comment on “The View” was just the final straw. She filed a wrongful termination against TheBlaze and it’s founder Glenn Beck, who then filed a countersuit against her. The lawsuit was settled earlier this month allowing her to seek employment elsewhere.
