REPORT: Tomi Lahren was FIRED Due to Antisocial Hostility, Butt Pads [VIDEO]
Tomi Lahren has gotten herself into some big trouble. After calling pro-lifers hypocrites on “The View,” she found herself suspended from her job at “The Blaze.” She dug herself into an even deeper hole, however, by suing Glenn Beck and “The Blaze” only to find herself the recipient of a countersuit. And that has opened the floodgates with information about who Tomi Lahren really is being unleashed.
According to sources at “The Blaze,” Lahren’s problems with the company began long before her controversial appearance on “The View.” That was just the last straw for Beck. Lahren’s lawsuit claimed that she had been wrongfully terminated, but insiders say that this had been a long time coming.
Lahren is alleged to have butted heads with other popular hosts like Dana Loesch, who she reportedly hated and Lawrence Jones. Sources say that she thrived on causing controversy and enjoyed provoking other employees. “Even when you wanted to give her a chance, she would go out of her way to make people mad,” one person said. “It’s like she got a high off of creating a hostile work environment.”
And Lahren did not seem to care if she was the subject of negative gossip or rumors; sources said she would shrug it off, saying, “At least they’re talking about me.” And she enjoyed being polarizing because she quickly realized that being offensive, divisive and controversial would get her hits. “She was always trying to chase that next million-view video,” a source said.
She also was demanding and rude to staffers, forcing assistants to do demeaning work such as heat up her “butt warming pad” and would constantly complain and argue about things like lighting, room temperature, editing, directing and shooting. And it wasn’t just “Blaze” staffers that she was rude to — advertisers found her difficult to work with as well.
“Several advertisers reported that Lahren was difficult to work with and that their advertisements performed poorly on her show, which resulted in lower than expected advertising support for Lahren,” the countersuit against her states. And other employees said that she had a poor work ethic on top of everything else. “She’s just not a pro and has ambition above her skill set and attitude,” another source said. “She created a toxic atmosphere and was not easy for people to work with.”
Interestingly, one of the core complaints in Lahren’s lawsuit against Beck is that she was no longer able to access her official Facebook page, which has over 4 million followers. Yet she was able to post a video with no problems on Tuesday.
That’s probably not going to help her lawsuit.
Sadly, Lahren’s story is hardly unusual; countless young adults have found themselves handed fame and notoriety without doing anything to deserve it and this is exactly what tends to happen. In John Hawkins’ new book ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches that when it comes to life, your attitude should be, “If I didn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it.”
Lahren did next to nothing to deserve her meteoric rise to fame. She bragged about not reading, could not make substantive points and as Beck himself pointed out, didn’t seem to understand the importance of intellectual honesty. Yet she felt it was appropriate to act like a spoiled diva who could treat the people around her like dirt?
Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for her. She didn’t earn what was handed to her and a little humility likely would have taken her a long way.
