The Anti-Defamation League Called Out Owens One Day Ago

Only one day before she parted ways with The Daily Wire, the AFL was going after Candace Owens after she was praised by white supremacist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, who praised her recent controversial rhetoric.

“White supremacist & Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes is praising Candace Owens' vitriolic antisemitism.

"My crime is having stood up for myself against your network of smears," she added. Although some fans voiced their support for her in the comments, one user asked, "Candace, has anyone in the Daily Wire speak out publicly to defend you? The public is with you, but do they have your back? You should interview Nick Fuentes btw. He is smeared on false premises just as you. Their struggle session didn't work so now they're lashing out."

It remains unclear whether or not Candace Owens plans to interview Nick Fuentes now that she has parted ways with The Daily Wire.
