Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren sat down with ABC News this week to discuss her wrongful termination lawsuit against Glenn Beck’s media company The Blaze.

Pro-choice comments made on “The View” March 17 were the beginning of the end of Tomi Lahren’s time with The Blaze. The 24-year-old pundit, cut off from millions of fans, filed a lawsuit in Dallas County on April 7 to regain the media spotlight. She broke her silence on the legal proceedings on Wednesday with “Nightline’s” Byron Pitts.

“Something has been stripped by me, and that’s my ability to work,” Ms. Lahren said. “That’s my ability to have a voice. That’s my ability to communicate with those fans and those followers that I have organically built for myself. And that’s been taken from me wrongfully. I’m upset by it, I’m hurt by it, and I feel betrayed by it. But at the end of the day, I’m going to come out of this stronger, because I’m not the kind of girl that sits in the corner and cries about things.”

Ms. Lahren’s show “Tomi” was taken off the air and she was denied access to her Facebook page after she told a panel on “The View” that she would be a “hypocrite” if she adopted a pro-life stance while calling herself an advocate of limited government.

“I just want to work and have the freedom to put my voice out there  and I want to interact with my fans and my followers,” Ms. Lahren added. “That’s all I want out of this.”

The Blaze issued the following statement to the Dallas Morning News about her lawsuit: “It is puzzling that an employee who remains under contract (and is still being paid) has sued us for being fired, especially when we continue to comply fully with the terms of our agreement with her.”
