She shot to prominence as a right-wing favorite with her YouTube channel Red Pill Black. She consistently criticized liberal groups and touted Trump’s presidency in her videos, with titles such as “WTF? Black Lives Matter Has a List of Demands for White People!”

Candace Owens Trump
Owens is probably most known for her public adoration of former President Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is the greatest President of our lifetime. It is always an honor to be in the presence of his fearless energy,” she wrote alongside a snap of Trump and her in January 2020. “He is a reminder to us all that we all need to keep fighting, day-in and day-out, to protect our freedoms from these do-nothing, disastrous, bitter-baby-mama Democrats. Greatness isn’t an impeachable offense.”
Owens is also friendly with many other conservative political commentators such as Michael J. Knowles and Ben Shapiro, whom she has featured multiple times on her show.
Feuds & Controversies
Owens said Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had blocked her on Twitter in July of 2019.
Owens said she hired New York lawyer Jacob Weinstein to send Ocasio-Cortez a letter, highlighting her intention to litigate the matter, should she not unblock Owens’ account.
“AOC blocked me because I am without question, her toughest critic,” Owens said at the time. “While she uses her social media presence to pollute the youth with fraudulent promises of a socialist utopia, I have used my online presence to directly refute such patently false indications. This outcome then assures us that there will continue to be a loud answer to the far-left’s predatory misinformation campaign aimed at our youth. We must never allow people that wish to bring socialism to America, go unchecked.”
Owens lashed out at Chrissy Teigen over claims the model had engaged in cyberbullying, branding the star a “deranged human being.”
Owens initially became embroiled in a nasty feud with the rapper over their opposing political views in August last year.
The spat began when Owens took part in an interview with fellow conservative pundit, Ben Shapiro, where she slammed the then-presidential nominee Joe Biden for taking part in an interview with Cardi B.
Owens called Cardi B “dumb and illiterate” while the rapper said she was “sad” for the Donald Trump supporter.
More recently, in March 2021, Owens criticized Cardi B’s 2021 Grammy performance, saying it signifies the “weakening of American society” in an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
