Candace Owens Says George Floyd Is Not An Amazing Person, Downplays Police Brutality. Conservative commentator Candace Owens, is currently trending on social media following her controversial statements on George Floyd. Candace is well known for her contentious remarks on Black people.
The blunt black author and Republican activist has made degrading comments on the black community countless times and while she has received backlash for her past remarks, it hasn’t stopped her from airing her opinion.
Candace Owens recently reacted to the George Floyd controversy, sharing a 15 minute clip on her page. Although she believes former police officer Derek Chauvin should be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law, she doesn’t agree that Floyd should be made out to look like a hero.
“George Floyd was not an amazing person and as soon as this video hit the internet, I did just basic searches and everyone jumped on it and was looking at the police officer and everyone agrees that the police officer was wrong and the police officer has been arrested.”
She continued, “He has been turned into the devil that he is and there is no reason for us to harp on that any longer. White Americans are not uplifting Derek Chauvin [like] he’s an amazing human being.”
Owens isn’t impressed that Floyd is being touted as a good person, and that’s something she doesn’t ahgree with. “George Floyd is being uplifted like he’s an amazing human being, and for those of you who have not yet seen the clips or did not pursue or wait for more clips to come out—first and foremost, George Floyd, at the time of his arrest was high on fentanyl and he was high on methamphetamine.”
She went on to describe the way Floyd was acting, how he allegedly had drugs on him at the time of his arrest, and then she detailed his reported criminal past that included armed robbery.
According to Candace Owens, Floyd’s death shouldn’t be used as a launching pad for protests and riots because he wasn’t an upstanding citizen that everyone has painted him out to be.
The video has since gone viral on social media and she’s been receiving lots of backlash over it. Watch the video below;
