After Tomi Lahren's "pro-choice" remarks from Friday's episode of "The View" struck a nerve with conservatives, reports surfaced claiming the popular Blaze host would likely exit the network by September.

A spokesperson for Lahren's declined to comment on the matter when reached by TooFab.

But The Blaze's founder Glenn Beck addressed the reports Monday during his radio show.

"If you're pro-choice, you can have a job at The Blaze. I don't hire people who are sycophants," said Beck.

"I try to hire people who have a different opinion. I don't want straw men. The Blaze cannot be about me, me, me, me. It’s no secret that Tomi and I don't agree on quite a lot, but that is about personalities."

Beck later inferred that Lahren likely took an opportunistic leap on what the internet has called her flip-flop on abortion policies.

Of the report from The Daily Caller saying Lahren is leaving The Blaze, Beck said: "That's not appropriate to be discussed on the radio. That's in the privacy of the office of The Blaze."

"Lahren's inflammatory, oftentimes angry style has placed her increasingly at odds with coworkers at The Blaze," and that it's "a situation that's worsened after she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites," reporter Peter Hasson wrote.

"The chances of her being brought back [in September] were pretty near zero before yesterday," a source told the Caller. The Caller reported that Lahren's chances of returning to The Blaze are "up in the air," and added that she is likely "talking to other people who might be willing to buy out her last six months."

The conservative host has her own show at The Blaze, the digital network founded by former Fox News star Glenn Beck and has been on the rise with her viral "Final Thoughts" segments, which often rail against liberals and Democrats. Branding many celebrities as "snowflakes," Lahren's rants have been directed at Colin Kaepernick and his refusal to kneel for The National Anthem as well as the Black Lives Matter movement and feminists.

Lahren referred to herself as the voice of middle America while on "The View" Friday, and came under fire for announcing that she was pro-choice, despite previously calling pro-choice proponents "straight-up baby killers."

Beck himself took Lahren to task in a tweet early Monday morning, mocking the host for saying she has "moderate, conservative, and libertarian views."
