Conservative activist Candace Owens went on a bizarre racist rant about other people of color she hates, implying that somehow white supremacy is justified.
We’ve turned George Floyd, a criminal drug addict, into an icon. We are promoting Satan shoes to wear on our feet.… https://t.co/0YAU0FZfTy— Candace Owens (@Candace Owens)1616959482.0
After their September feud, Cardi B has risen above the Candace Owens attacks, ignoring her entirely. Last year, Cardi B noted that Owens has been obsessed with her since 2018.

Lil Nas, however, shot back at her for attacking his shoe line, which is benefitting from millions in free advertising from the right-wing.

The controversy had an adverse impact, with many saying the right-wing freakout made them want to buy Nas' new shoe line.
A few people accused her of being a self-hating African American desperate to change her color.
Just say you hate being black and go

Candace Owens hates herself more than any White supremacist could https://t.co/Flv6NKp1qM— saydM0M0 (@saydM0M0)1616964816.0
Another suggested that Owens' low ratings are the reason she's "punching up" and trying to pick fights with famous people:

1.White people and the news turned George Floyd into a criminal. 2.Don't wear the shoes if you don't want to. 3.Other than the fact that she showcases her body Cardi isn't that bad, she speaks her truth and she doesn't hide.

This is a bad tweet and I'm no lefty. Floyd was a garbage human but he didn't deserve to die. There are others who died for no reason too like Eric Garner. Unfortunately the people in power don't actually care and its all just political.
