Candace Owens Out At Daily Wire

There’s been some drama over at the Daily Wire between Candace Owens and the site’s co-founder Ben Shapiro. Things seemed tense before the October 7, 2023 Hamas invasion of Israel, but after . . . things became publicly tense.

It’s now being reported that Owens is out at Daily Wire.

The New York Post reports:

Daily Wire chief Jeremy Boreing shared to X on Friday that the conservative news site has parted ways with its controversial political presenter Candace Owens.

. . . . The move comes as Owens’ feud with Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro over Israel was escalating.

In the aftermath of Hamas’ Oct. 7 terrorist attack, Owens has emerged as an outspoken critic of Israel, most recently “liking” a post on X about a centuries-old conspiracy theory that says rabbis drink the blood of Christians, Mediaite earlier reported.

In a post on X last week, celebrity Rabbi Shmuley Boteach accused Owens of being an “arch antisemite” who “is inciting her Jew-hating followers to threaten to murder Jews and especially me.”

. . . . Owens — who has also defended Kanye West’s antisemitic rants — has also condemned “political Jews,” accusing them of fueling antisemitism and being “some of the most vile, dishonest, manipulative people that I have ever met.”

. . . . It’s far from the first time that Owens has exchanged barbs over Israel and antisemitism with Shapiro, who is Jewish and was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family.

Amid the row, the conservative group cited for helping launch Owens’ career, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, cut its years-long ties with Owens, citing her “ignorant, hateful and morally obtuse remarks about Israel and the Jews.”

There’s been quite the uproar on right Twitter (X), as you can imagine.

I think he’s referring to this notorious exchange.

Owens has confirmed the news.
