Tomi Lahren isn’t letting her reported suspension from The Blaze affect her sense of humor.

On Monday, after reports that Lahren had been suspended from Glenn Beck’s network after a public Twitter feud with her boss over her pro-choice views, Lahren hit up Twitter to joke about the “me” time that she’s suddenly found herself with.

“So I’ve got some ‘me’ time tonight. Anything good on TV?” Lahren wrote, punctuating her wisecrack with an emoticon of a laughing face with tears streaming from its eyes and the hashtag #TeamTomi.

In another tweet possibly relating to the reported suspension, Lahren wrote, “When people praise you, don’t let it go to your head. When people criticize you, don’t let it go to your heart.”

Earlier on Monday, the Daily Caller reported that Lahren had been suspended for “at least one week” after expressing her pro-choice views on ABC’s “The View” and then engaging in a very public back-and-forth with Beck about her views via Twitter.

After her appearance on “The View,” Lahren tweeted that she “will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.”

The tweet drew a response from Beck on Sunday, when he tweeted, “Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian.”

“I’m pro-choice and here is why,” Lahren said on “The View.” “I am someone that loves the Constitution, I am someone that is for limited government, so 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. Stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”

Beck addressed the situation on his radio show Monday, calling it a “dustup.”

“I don’t hire people who are sycophants or don’t have my opinion. I try to hire people who have a different opinion because I believe in being intellectually rigorous. I don’t want strawmen. I want people to have a real argument on the other side so we can learn from each other, and we can grow,” he said.

Beck went on to say that he “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. 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,” Beck said. “Speech is not free. It comes with another cost and usually to the other people at the other end of your argument. The pen is mightier than the sword, and it can destroy people if your aim is clicks, views, and ratings… For Tomi, this seems to be a relatively recent change.”

As for Lahren’s call for viewing suggestions, a number of Twitter users responded, with one response jokingly suggesting that she check out Dave Chapelle’s new Netflix comedy special, and another hissing, “@TomiLahren you’re not on TV so anything is good really.”

Ouch. Who needs TV, with entertainment this juicy?
