Candace Owens Talks with Tucker About the Shapiro Clash


Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro publicly slammed his major contributor Candace Owens again, telling her to quit. He has been highly critical of her for her criticisms of Israel, which he sees as anti-Semitic. Last week, he told people in a private affair that her comments were “disgraceful.”

They unfollowed each other on social media after the video went public, and today, he called for her to quit after she posted bible verses.

“Candace, if you feel that taking money from The Daily Wire somehow comes between you and God, ” Shapiro said, “by all means, quit.”

“You have been acting unprofessional and emotionally unhinged for weeks now,” Owens responded. “And we have all had to sit back and allow it and have all tried to exercise exceeding understanding for your raw emotion. But you cross a certain line when you come for scripture and read yourself into it.”

“I will not tolerate it,” she said.

Owens removed Daily Wire from her X profile and responded to Ben Shapiro on Tucker’s show.

She said she can’t respond to his comments because they’re “ad hominin attacks.” She said the video speaks “more to Ben Shapiro’s character than mine.”

Tucker asked if she had heard anything from Shapiro, and she said, “Nothing.” He didn’t ask for an explanation, an apology, or anything.

The dispute began in 2022 when Owens agreed with a tweet from Max Blumenthal, who supports Palestine. Shapiro criticized Owens for supporting Blumenthal, who “spends his life covering for Jew-haters and stumping for Israel’s destruction.”

Owens felt he should have handled the matter privately.

Shapiro has gotten into several Twitter/X fights with others online. He seems to prefer that approach.

People criticized Shapiro online for the approach he used.

Charlie Kirk couldn’t figure out why the bible verses resulted in Ben Shapiro calling for her to quit. Although it’s clear this was the result of her prior comments, the bible verses did seem to anger Ben Shapiro. Maybe he was looking for an excuse.

I just got around to watching the interview and Candace omits a very important part of the controversy. She accused the Jewish State of “genocide”. If Israel were committing genocide then the IDF wouldn’t be allowing so many to leave for the south, which likely includes many of the terrorists.

Both complain about the uproar over the “letter”, and where were they before. But she admits changing her beliefs from being a leftist, but evidently they are not allowed to change. Sounds similar to the Woke crowd. They both really downplay the emotional reaction to the horrific atrocities on Oct. 7. They may as well say “Get Over It”. But they take offense at the attacks on whites, but Jews evidently can’t take offense. Neither one will acknowledge this issue of Anti-Semitism isn’t about merely be offended. Rather, it’s about the eradication of Jews. That was the purpose of Oct. 7th and the current “Free Palestine” movement. They chant that “Palestine” will be from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, thus eliminating Israel. People who are ignorant of the Middle East should just keep quiet.

Hasn’t people noticed that Tucker’s scripts are well written and delivered but when it comes to interviews he’s quite superficial.

I owe Candace Owens an apology. Ben Shapiro slandered her.
Let me say, that while it is often best to not publicly answer slander, and she tried to handle in Biblically and privately, a few simple statements, could have quickly cleared the air. “I am not pro-Hamas, and I am not an anti-Semite. I chose not to enter the [public arena about October 7, because I was concentrating on my family including my soon to be born child. I fee I am in good standing with the leaders of the Daily Wire and appreciate their strong leadership.”
I hereby apologize to Candace, for listening to slander. May God bless you and your family.
