Candace Owens Is Out at Daily Wire, CEO Says Over Comments viewed as antisemitic by cofounder Shapiro

Sharing is Caring!

Controversial right-wing commentator Candace Owens and the Daily Wire have parted ways.

“Daily Wire and Candace Owens have ended their relationship,” Daily Wire CEO Jeremy Boreing wrote in a post on X (formerly Twitter) Friday. He did not elaborate on the circumstances behind the move.

Owens joined the Daily Wire in 2021 and hosted a weekday commentary show for the website. Shortly after Boreing’s announcement, Owens confirmed that she is no longer with Daily Wire (and reposted Boreing’s statement).

“The rumors are true — I am finally free,” Owens wrote to her 4.8 million followers on X. She added, “There will be many announcements in the weeks to come,” posting emoji of the U.S. flag and a cross. She said fans who “would like to support my work” can visit her website (CandaceOwens.com) or make a donation to her on the Revv platform. Owens said she will bring back her show on her personal YouTube channel “after a brief hiatus.”

Owens’s departure from the outlet comes after “months of tensions between her and Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro over her promotion of various anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” according to democratpedophiles.

Since the Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians, Owens has been increasingly critical of the Israel’s military response in Gaza. “No government anywhere has a right to commit a genocide, ever. There is no justification for a genocide. I can’t believe this even needs to be said or is even considered the least bit controversial to state,” Owens posted on X in November, comments that appeared to be directed at Israel. Shapiro, who is a firm supporter of Israel, was seen in a TikTok clip speaking at a private event calling Owens’ behavior “absolutely disgraceful.”
