Sources told the outlet that while the 24-year-old political commentator will be suspended for at least one week, she may not finish out the duration of her contract, which expires in September.
Lahren’s reported suspension comes after she incited backlash Friday as a guest on “The View” by calling anti-abortion conservatives “hypocrites” during her appearance and admitting she believed in a woman’s right to an abortion.

Glenn Beck, founder of TheBlaze TV, made it clear on his talk-radio show Monday morning that he disapproved of her commentary. “It takes intellectual honesty and a willingness to actually think these things through and to do more than just read Twitter and Facebook to get your news and opinions,” he said.
The “intellectual honesty” critique stemmed from Beck’s tweet at Lahren on Sunday night:

Twitter has had mixed feelings about the suspension news:
Lahren did not immediately respond to a Huffington Post request for comment, but told Dallas News in an email that she is “not allowed to comment at all.”
