Candace Owens’ Wheelchair Comments Sparks Outrage

Lyndon Abioye |

In a recent episode of her podcast, Candace Owens sparked outrage after she shared her thoughts about fashion campaigns that feature wheelchair users.

Owens called out SKIMS Adaptive Collection by Kim Kardashian that features a disabled model in the campaign.

“I really I don’t understand how far we’re going to take this inclusivity thing, I really don’t get it, and if I am wrong educate me,” “[A model in a wheelchair] seems ridiculous,” she said. Owens added, “Whose idea was this? Was it your idea? Okay, you’re fired”.

“I don’t know why this needs to be done,” Owens said. “I’m just getting tired of this all inclusivity thing.”

Actress Christina Applegate, who has lived with multiple sclerosis, blasted Owens.

“Yes late tweet. But woke to see the most horrifying thing,” Applegate wrote. “This Candace person making comments about companies who see we need help. It’s f— gross. I thank skims and Tommy [Hilfiger] and Guide beauty and @neowalksticks for seeing … us. To [Owens] #youshouldknowbetter.”
