Tomi Lahren has reportedly been suspended from conservative media outlet The Blaze after airing a pro-choice view on abortion on ABC's "The View" on Friday.
Lahren, who is known for her strong conservative views as a political commentator and talk show host, and one of The Blaze's most visible commentators, suggested on "The View" that pro-life politics was an example of government overreach, the New York Post noted.
"I'm someone that is for limited government, so I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government, but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies," Lahren said on the show. "Stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well."
Criticism mounted quickly on social media.
The Daily Caller reported that multiple sources confirmed Monday that Lahren was suspended for at least one week for the comments. The Daily Caller went on to say while Lahren's contract with The Blaze lasts until September, she may leave the network earlier.
The Blaze founder Glenn Beck pushed back against Lahren's comments, the New York Post noted.
"I would disagree that you're a hypocrite if you want limited government and yet you want the government to protect life of the unborn," Beck said on his radio show Monday, adding that Lahren's comments wouldn't endanger her job.
Lahren, who hosts "Tomi" on The Blaze TV, has posted messages on Twitter hinting at her suspension.
