Candace Owens is looking to ruffle a few feathers today with a new tweet aimed at George Floyd, Lil Nas X and Cardi B. The New York Times best-selling author isn’t holding back and has many people upset.
Her first target, Floyd, is the black man who’s life was taken on May 25, 2020. Owens has been throwing support behind blue lives in the wake of BLM, so her stance on Floyd should be of no surprise. Many have tried to use Floyd’s past history as a means to justify the incident.

It’s edgy accompanying video has already amassed 47 millions views on youtube thanks to its controversial themed final act, which finds Nas dancing with the devil himself. The release and all its hype has conveniently carried over into a sneaker collaboration between Lil Nas X and MSCHF.

The performance included a giant bed, stripper shoe pole and interactive CGI. Megan Thee Stallion also made a cameo. Candace Owens wasted no time tearing the performance to shreds during a Fox News segment. She said Cardi’s performance signified the corrosion and end of an empire for the Grammys.
Cardi thanked Owen’s for the free press “Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy. She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales STREAM UP AND WAP . REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE.”
Candace replied “Just @ me next time, directly. You are a cancer cell to culture. Young black girls are having their minds poisoned by what you are trying to package and sell to them as “empowerment” ”
While Cardi and reps for Floyd have yet to acknowledge the tweet, Lil Nas X caught wind of it almost immediately and swooped in for the viral moment, calling Owen’s a flop.
