Candace Owens has accused Amazon workers of defacing and spoiling copies of her new book before sending them out in the mail. Owens had taken to Twitter to accuse Amazon employees of 'stomping on' and 'smearing vaseline' over her new book, 'Blackout'. Owens had written a public message to Amazon on Saturday on September 19. 

Owens had written, "Dear @amazon. About 1,000 people have written to let me know that your employees appear to be stomping on and in this case, smearing Vaseline on my books before mailing them. I know it must have pained you to ship out all 90,000 copies you had in stock — but this is unacceptable."


She had also shared two images of the book appearing to show smear marks on the cover. Owens had included the pictures of the book with what seemed to be intentional smear marks on the cover. Many social media users had taken to commenting on the post and had noted the same. One such user shared, "Unbelievable! I'm sorry that happened Candace. Please take Amazon to court, so they can be held accountable for their actions. I'm tired of seeing a bunch of thugs & crooks be made out as heroes by our despicable news media." Another social media user commented, "Sue Amazon Candace! That’s absolutely disgusting. You are an amazing person and should not have to deal with this nonsense."




Yet another Twitter user added, "I am one who received my BLACKOUT book smeared with a substance, God knows what. Disgrace! I had to clean both front and back of the bookcover using warm water and dish soap. I scrubbed it w/o letting it touch my skin. Disgusting. I fully intend to speak w/Amazon on the matter." "My book came damaged too. I want to submit a complaint against Amazon but do not want you to be responsible for any refund. Please let us know what should we do. I am willing to buy directly from you and return this so Amazon does not profit from u," wrote another user.



We had earlier reported that rapper Cardi B and the right-wing commentator Candace Owens' have been feuding. During the interview, Owens slammed the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for participating in an interview with Cardi B last month for Elle magazine.

In her interview, she said that Biden giving an interview to Cardi B “would be akin to Donald Trump saying, ‘I’m going to give no interviews’ but he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber”. She also added to Shapiro’s existing commentary on Cardi B’s latest hit ‘WAP’.

She took to Twitter to share an excerpt from the interview, saying, “Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and you go.”

Cardi B responded to Owens, saying that Biden took time with her because she was influential. “It's not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote,” she said in a video on her Instagram Story. "I love politics... today, Candace Owens said some real nasty things about me.” She added, “I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the Number One song in this country, I have the Number One song in the United Kingdom, I have the Number One song in Australia, I have the Number One song in New Zealand. Just like I can make millions of people pop their p****... I can make millions of people go vote.”
