AceShowbiz - It didnn't take long for Candace Owens to react to Dave Chappelle's jab at her in a surprise Netflix special "8:46" in which he called her "stanky." Taking to her Twitter account on Friday, June 12, the conservative pundit commented on the diss.
"We've arrived too suddenly into a culture where people can't laugh at themselves, or want to restrain comedians," Candace wrote on her tweet. "I will never be a part of that culture."
Later, instead of viciously responding to Dave, Candace sent love to the comedian. "@DaveChappelle --you are legend and I'd love to meet you and challenge you to say any of that to my face! All love!" she added.
"To every Democrat tweeting me the clip of #DaveChappelle insulting me: I'm not a leftist. I have a sense of humor & I think comedians SHOULD make fun of people," she added in a separate tweet. "Dave Chappelle is one of the greatest comedians of all time and I made it into one of his specials. That's POWER!"
During his stand-up, Dave slammed Candance, saying, "I've seen Candace Owens try to convince white America, 'Don't worry about it he's a criminal anyway.' I don't give a f**k what this n***a did... I don't care if he personally kicked Candace Owens in her stink p***y. I don't know if it stinks, but I imagine it does. If I ever find out I'll let you know for sure, I'll tell like Azealia Banks, I'll tell."
In addition to blasting Candace, Dave came after Don Lemon. "I'm watching Don Lemon... he says, 'Where are all these celebrities. Why aren't you talking?' Does it matter about celebrity? No. This is the streets talking for themselves. They don't need me right now," he ranted.
In response to the name-dropping, Don said in an interview with CNN, "I'm actually honored to be memorialized in a Dave Chappelle special. What I will say is that I actually agree with Dave Chapelle. I agree--I think the establishment has been a bit behind."
"I think the young people who are out there in the street don't really care what we have to say. They think that part of the world that we created and what we did, maybe we didn't move fast enough, we weren't strong enough. So they're out there fighting," he continued. "They said, 'Listen, we are tired of this happening. We tried to do it nicely, we tried to do it peacefully, we've tried to do all of these things and you've rejected it.' So they're not only speaking to the white people in this country but also to all of us, all of us in the establishment."
"But the irony is that special is called '8:46'. He's talking about this issue and I think it's great. He's using his platform to talk about this in the way that he can," he concluded.
