Early last week, Candace Owens and Cardi B were involved in a Twitter catfight that eventually led to an Instagram Live feud. The battle started when Owens, a conservative political commentator and activist, stated in an interview on “The Ben Shapiro Show” that Cardi B was being used by presidential candidate Joe Biden to win the black vote. She was referring to Cardi’s August interview with Biden. Cardi, an American rapper and celebrity whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, at one point shot back, “You’re saying Joe Biden is pandering because he’s using a popular figure like me. But your president, the guy that you f—ing love so much, he panders as well, too…I’m gonna keep telling my millions of followers to vote until we get your president out of here.”
1) Produce the clip of Trump laughing at black men getting killed, you lying fraud.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) September 7, 2020
2) I turned down filming a spot for the RNC convention.
3) You encourage millions of young girls to spread their legs, & you admitted to date-raping men—so don’t even start on the bleach lie. https://t.co/ZMW2CdPM3k
The Right thinks Owens won. Brandon Tatum, co-founder of BLEXIT Foundation – a campaign aimed convincing the black and hispanic voters to exit the Democratic party – tweeted, “CANDACE OWENS MOPPED THE FLOOR WITH CARDI B IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE WORLD!”
“I realize some of this just sounds like gossip about a cat fight, but there’s more going on here than that. When Cardi accuses Candace of ‘hating her own kind,’ she’s perpetuating the idea that black people are only allowed to have one point of view. Candace not only refutes that powerfully, but does so in exhaustive detail.”Dan Calabrese, author and journalist
Why do Biden/Harris respect Jacob Blake and Cardi B more than they respect Ben Carson and Candace Owens?— Jake Coco 💙🇺🇸🎶🐻 (@jakecoco) September 7, 2020
The Left thinks Cardi won. The Black Wall Street Times, a black-owned digital news-media company, wrote, “[Candace] just can’t seem to stop hating on her own people.” The article also read, “Cardi’s social media following and star power alone can actually determine a presidential election,” referring to her 75+ million Instagram following. Democratic New York council member Ritchie Torres tweeted, “Thank you @iamcardib for exposing @RealCandaceO for the fraud that she is. You make the Bronx proud!”
