Those who dislike Candace Owens, 31, celebrated when Dave Chappelle, 46, insulted her in his recent Netflix special “8:46.” But the Blexit founder is not crying and if she is, it must be tears of joy.
Owens felt honored to be even mentioned by Chappelle, who she describes as a legend. On June 12, 2020, she took to Twitter to send him a message and even challenge him to a face-to-face conversation.
Chappelle has yet to respond to Owens. On June 6, 2020, he filmed “8:46” at an outdoor venue in Yellow Spring, Ohio, United States with a live audience.
“8:46” premiered on Netflix on on June 11, 2020. The title of the show refers to the eight minutes and 46 seconds Derek Chauvin, 44, knelt on George Floyd’s neck during an arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States on May 25, 2020.
“Candace Owens, that rotten b—h,” Chappelle said in “8:46.” “She’s the worst. I can’t think of a worse way to make money. She’s the most articulate idiot I’ve ever seen in my f—ing life.”
Apparently, Chappelle and Owens have different views when it comes to the kind of life Floyd lived. She disagrees with those who call the late African-American security guard a hero or a martyr because of his criminal record.
On the other hand, Chappelle is not concerned about whatever Floyd had done that brought him to jail. The comedian said he did not care if Floyd personally kicked Owens “in her stinky p***y.”
“I don’t know if it stinks but I imagine it does,” Chappelle said of Owens’ genitals. “If I ever find out, I’ll let you know for sure.”
What Chappelle did not mention or emphasize enough is that Owens is an African-American woman who does not believe that white privilege exists. She is a conservative commentator and political activist who supports Donald Trump, 73.
Floyd died while in the custody of former Minneapolis Police Department officers Derek Michael Chauvin, 44, Tou Thao, 34, Thomas Lane, 37, and J Alexander Kueng, 26. The fatal arrest became an international concern and Black Lives Matter protests took place not only in the U.S. but also in various countries including Australia and New Zealand.
