Candace Owens Drags Lizzo Into Defending Kanye West’s “White Lives Matter” Shirt

Candace Owens, a conservative commentator clapped back at people who criticized her and Kanye “Ye” West for wearing “White Lives Matter” shirts and she even brought in music star Lizzo.

Owens defended her and West’s outfit choices during Paris fashion week on her Daily Wire podcast. She did this while arguing that black Americans should care more about abortion, “black-on-black” crime, education standards and obesity. That’s when she brought up Lizzo as a way to tie her rant together.

“You know what we should’ve done, we should’ve put a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt on Lizzo,” Owens said. “Maybe we could have gotten a lot of attention about obesity and how it’s actually killing black Americans.”

According to the CDC one of the main reasons people die in the US is because they are too fat. Owens’ rant about the “White Lives Matter” controversy started right at the beginning of her show after a photo of her and West wearing the shirts went viral on social media.

“There is a deep irony and a sad irony when you consider that wearing a t-shirt has led such a tremor throughout the world,” Owens said. “A t-shirt that says ‘White Lives Matters,’ which should be implied, right.”

White lives matter, black lives matter, Asian lives matter—that should go without saying. But people are angry and mean on the internet because they can’t believe we have the nerve to take away from the “Black Lives Matter” movement which is a lie.

West, who now goes by Ye, got a lot of hate on social media for saying “White Lives Matter.”

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son Jaden Smith tweeted, “I Had To Dip Lol” after he left Kanye West’s fashion show in protest. Later, he sent out a series of tweets that said, “True Leaders Lead. I Don’t Care Who’s It Is If I Don’t Feel The Message I’m Out. Black Lives Matter. We Demand A More Progressive Future.”

Marc Lamont Hill, a professor at Temple University said that West’s choice of t-shirt was “disgusting.”

“Kanye West’s decision to wear a ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt is disgusting, dangerous and irresponsible,” Lamont Hill fumed on Twitter. “Some of y’all will rush to defend him. You should ask yourselves why.”

In an Instagram story on Tuesday, West also stood up for the shirt while calling the “Black Lives Matter” movement a scam.
