Candace Owens obviously didn’t have much going on this Labor Day Weekend and decided to use her time in starting up a Twitter war with Cardi B. Sharing a video where she’s seen agreeing with Ben Shapiro’s anti-Hip-Hop stances, in particular against the Bronx superstar, Owens aimed her critique as she’s known to do and sparked off a nasty back-and-forth battle.
In the initial salvo fired by Owens, she makes no bones about the pointed nature of her criticism.
“Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values…here you go,” Owens opened, with the video of a chat between her and Shapiro tearing down Cardi’s music and Hip-Hop music in general.
Owens did tag Cardi in the initial tweet, which got the response she was desperately awaiting.
“You wanna know why joe gotta talk to me Candice cause I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing cause they were by themselves & Santa Claus was harassing my sis GF all because they are a Afro/Hispanic gay couple,” Cardi replied, sharing the video the described incident from the tweet.
With no empathy showing regarding MAGA nuts harassing Cardi’s sister, Owens once again went on the attack.
“To clarify—Joe Biden “gotta talk” to you because you have the number 1 song and Santa Claus was harassing your sister? Um. K. Thanks for clearing that one up,” Owens replied.
Cardi tried to walk away from it but Owens was determined to have herself some petty tit-for-tat on the Lord’s Day.
“Yes you are right I have the number 1 song & I have a huge platform and I can make millions go vote to get the MAN THAT USED YOU .I don’t want to argue with you Candace I really don’t have the time .I honestly just feel sorry for you,” Cardi said.
Owens, who is apparently a mutant that can read minds, took yet another shot at Cardi’s intellect and likeability.
“You are encouraging MILLIONS to go vote for the man that locked up entire generations of black men.
Maybe go google: JOE BIDEN AND 1994 CRIME BILL. Joe Biden used you. Bernie Sanders used you. Neither one of them like or know your music. They think you’re dumb,” Owens said.
But since Cardi is a lot sharper than the likes of Owens and many others will ever admit, she made a clear and valid point that Owens didn’t even get to do a little shoe-shine shuffle at the Republican National Convention despite being a conservative firebrand.
“& you are encouraging millions to vote for a man who laugh Everytime a black men gets killed by a cop and tell millions of Americans to drink bleachWoman shrugging Trump didn’t even have you talking at the Republican convention Weary faceHe thinks you’re dumb.MASA did you dirty but you mad at me?” Cardi responded.
We won’t dignify Owens’ attack of Cardi by posting the video (and it’s all over the Internet anyway). Instead, we’ve got reactions from all sides listed out below.
It's amazing how many white people use Candace Owens videos to justify their racism.— John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) September 7, 2020
Forget bootlicking, Candace Owens will deep throat the entire leg. All the performative bullshit she did to sell out her own people, and they never even invited her to the RNC. Meanwhile, my girl Cardi B out here doing zoom calls with presidential candidates on her day off. pic.twitter.com/8TKsuxeQFe— Fifty Shades of Whey (@davenewworld_2) September 7, 2020
Trying to come up with a word to describe the self loathing, white supremacy defending, virulently anti-Black messaging from Candace Owens, Paris Dennard, KY AG Daniel Cameron and other members of the White Man's Ice Is Colder Caucus and the word "Cooniform" popped into my head.— Ragnarok Lobster (@eclecticbrotha) September 7, 2020

Fuck Cardi B And Fuck Candace Owens they don’t speak for me pic.twitter.com/2esNU6lxsm— JOE BURROW SZN (@harry2257) September 7, 2020
So let me get this straight... @iamcardib can’t have an OPINION because she hasn’t studied politics but y’all mfs can ELECT a man with no political background or schooling to be your PRESIDENT... let that sink in #CardiB #CandaceOwens pic.twitter.com/lPCS2wM4hM— trey.way (@trey_wayyyy) September 7, 2020
Last thing on Candace Owens. Many ppl have said this but it’s worth repeating. Her end goal isn’t to win over black ppl. Outside of wayward black me (which I will admit there are way too many of), she’s not really picking up black voters cause most set through her bullshit— Darth Kriss (@insanityreport) September 7, 2020
Instead of being uplifting, positive and friendly she’s a bully online and a hypocrite. Anyway, the couple married at one of President Trumps Winery’s in Virginia not even one year after meeting. Last month, August 2020 she announced being 6 months pregnant. #CandaceOwens pic.twitter.com/PBni6EB4Kq— RhondaK Bennett (@BossDivaRhondaK) September 7, 2020
“The lies @RealCandaceO tells about Black people are not relegated to strangers. She even tells lies about herself. Owens said repeatedly that race was never an issue when she was growing up. But there are receipts that prove otherwise.” https://t.co/O40ZD0LCxQ— #systemicracism (@girlact75) September 7, 2020
I hate @iamcardib allowed @RealCandaceO to uplift her platform by responding to what she said. That's exactly what she wanted! The more you ignore people like @RealCandaceO the less of an impact they have. She has absolutely no place or voice in the black community. #VoteBlue— 1CleverGuy (@CleverForever_1) September 7, 2020
I wish @RealCandaceO would genuinely shut the fuck up. One day you conservatives will learn to keep @iamcardib name out ya mouth because mama has proven herself time and time again to be quite knowledgeable in regards to politics and history. Dry ass pussy hoes.— Tawlette Tisha Soff (@TheTrentAvery) September 7, 2020
.@RealCandaceO here's your proof that you are just a token.— Dr. GingerF (@right4what) September 7, 2020
Somehow this man forgets 99% of all other Black famous women and 92% of ALL Black women vote D. But he's happy with his party as long as there is Candace. https://t.co/N9O4FwBPs0
