Candace Owens is known as a polarizing figure in the political arena as the right-wing commentator and author often rubs people the wrong way with her straightforward, sometimes insulting approach to political and social justice issues.
She is now causing controversy with his latest comment directed at LeBron James.
“Jacob Blake was armed with a KNIFE when cops shot him says Wisconsin AG,” Megyn Kelly, former Fox News news anchor wrote on Twitter. Candace Owens retweeted the message and added a response. “Yes—but even if a black man is armed with a knife, has a warrant for his arrest over sexually assaulting a minor, threatens to grab another weapon from his car, AND is physically resisting, officers still mustn’t defend themselves or else RACISM. …Cuz Lebron James says so .”
Candace Owens is referring to the recent cascade of sports athletes who are protesting the death of Jacob blake, including LeBron James, who is reportedly encouraging the Los Angeles Lakers to sit out for the rest of the NBA season.
