The Daily Wire co-founder, Ben Shapiro and his employee Candace Owens’ feud escalates as he suggests she quits her Job for being “pro-Palestine.”
Shapiro lashed out at Owens yet again on Wednesday. In a response to Owens’ cryptic tweet, he said, “Candace, if you feel that taking money from The Daily Wire somehow comes between you and God, by all means quit.”
As the feud between the two commentators over the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians escalates, Owens who seems to be on the side of the Palestinians based on her recent statements, called out Shapiro on X, saying, “You have been acting unprofessional and emotionally unhinged for weeks now.” She added, “But you cross a certain line when you come for scripture and read yourself into it. I will not tolerate it.”
It all began with a TikTok video, in which the 39-year-old editor-in-chief of the American media company criticised Owens’ behaviour on the issues regarding the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the video clip, which went viral on Tuesday, Shapiro can be heard saying, “I think that her faux sophistication on these particular issues has been ridiculous,” adding that her commentary on Israel, which was riddled with errors, was “disreputable.” Shapiro who was visibly agitated with Owens’ remarks, called her “absolutely disgraceful.”
Earlier, Owens who is a Christian, quoted Biblical scripture calling for an end to the attack on the Palestinian people.
Many people across the world have commended her for being consistent with her viewpoints despite working for an organisation owned by Jews.
