Tomi Lahren, and her tiny violin, will appear on Nightline to talk about her recent ousting from The Blaze. In the interview, Lahren says she simply wants Blaze founder Glenn Beck to “let her go.”

Last month, Lahren was suspended from her job after she appeared on The View and expressed her pro-choice views. And, of course, that didn’t sit well with Beck. Lahren, whose contract isn’t up until September, was suspended for a week, which then turned into a permanent ban.

“Let me go. Let me move on,” Lahren said. “I’m deeply hurt by what has happened, I’m disappointed in what has happened. But if this is the way that it is, let’s just part ways, cleanly.”

Last week, Lahren filed a lawsuit against Beck and The Blaze for wrongful termination. And she wants to be free to spout her hate and probably criticize her former employer.

“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; that’s all I want out of this,” Lahren said. “It’s my job, this is my life. Without that, I feel lost. When your outlet is taken away from you, when your catharsis is stripped from you and you don’t understand why and you’re so disappointed and you’re so blindsided by it—it hurts.”

Aww, well, honey, put a bandage on that hurt and get over it. As one person in the comment section said last week, “Eat each other.”

Lahren’s entire interview on Nightline will air Thursday at 12:35 a.m. ET.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

“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, that’s all I want out of this. It’s my job, this is my life. Without that, I feel lost. When your outlet is taken away from you, when your catharsis is stripped from you and you don’t understand why and you’re so disappointed and you’re so blindsided by it—it hurts.” 

So much dumb shit to unpack here.

I just want to work. - You’re a vaguely famous pretty white woman with a good amount of money in the bank. You should have no problem finding a job.

The freedom to put my voice out there - Do you see that dinglehopper with the blinking light? That’s a camera. It is literally putting your voice out there.

I want to interact with my fans and my followers - You have Facebook and Twitter and all sorts of social media that you can use without any problem.

It’s my job, this is my life. Without that, I feel lost. - If you not being on the air means you feel lost, I wish you would have gotten lost a long time ago. 

When your outlet is taken away from you - I’m sorry. I must have missed the part where you owned The Blaze. Are you Glenn Beck? If not, that’s not your outlet.

when your catharsis is stripped from you - Your catharsis is shouting ignorant bigotry. You are a deeply troubled individual.

You don’t understand why - I’d call you “ignorant” for this, but that implies that you are unaware of the reason. You are aware of why you were suspended but are too think to comprehend it. That is “stupidity” not “ignorance.”

You’re so disappointed - When we think of you, we’re disappointed too. You haven’t failed to disappoint yet.

You’re so blindsided by it—it hurts. - Tami, you laid down with a bunch of dogs. If waking up with fleas blindsided you, well shit-oh-dear, Tami, that’s squarely on you.

All in all, I rate Tami Lahren a 7.8 on the Kerrigan scale. “Why me?” indeed.

I would definitely recommend Jeff Gillooly taking a lead pipe to the back of her knee.
