Beck’s spending habits have come under much scrutiny from employees as his media empire The Blaze crumbles. Employees at the company criticized Beck for his spending habits. The company underwent mass layoffs in 2015 and 2016, and at one point Beck fired nearly 40 people.

Beck, with a net worth of $250 million, has not responded to a request for comment.
