CONSERVATIVE STAR TOMI LAHREN “BANNED PERMANENTLY” FROM THE BLAZE

Lahren was already suspended for the pro-choice comments she made on ‘The View.’

Tomi Lahren won’t come back to The Blaze after being “banned permanently” for her pro-choice comments, as indicated by a report in The New York Post.

Lahren, host of Tomi on The Blaze, was suspended earlier this month for comments she made March 17 on The View. “I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government, but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” Lahren said on The View.

Lahren’s comments were widely criticized by conservatives on Twitter and the controversy intensified the day after The View appearance when she sought to defend herself, tweeting: “I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views. I’m human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.”

That tweet led to a very open rebuke from The Blaze chief Glenn Beck, who questioned Lahren’s intellectual honesty on his radio show. “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. It’s very, very clear,” he said. “But it takes intellectual honesty, and it takes a willingness to actually think these things through and to do more than just read Twitter or Facebook to get your news and your political opinions.”

A Beck insider told Page Six that the firestorm from the right over Lahren’s comments has led to her permanent ban. “Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” the Beck insider said.

ADELE REFUSES GRAMMY AND THEN BREAKS AWARD IN TWO PIECES IN ORDER TO GIVE ONE PIECE TO BEYONCE

English superstar Adele scooped the coveted Best Album gong at the Grammys – but her acceptance speech was anything but conventional.

Adele teared up after winning the album of the year, giving a huge shout out to Queen Bey, who was also nominated in the top category.

Refusing the award, the south London singer said: “I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my life is Beyonce, and the album to me, the Lemonade album, Beyonce, was so monumental, and so well thought out.”

“And so beautiful and soul bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that.”

She later added: “You are our light. And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves.”

“And I love you. I always have. And I always will.”

In scenes reminiscent of the Mean Girls movie, Adele did the unthinkable and broke her Grammy for Album of the Year in half on stage at the award ceremony on Sunday night, a happy accident and she declared it truly belongs to Beyonce. She did it, to give a piece to Queen Bey.
