The conservative commentator Candace Owens addressed her and Kanye ‘Ye’ West's ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt controversy and even invited singer Lizzo to her address. Owens, during part of her Daily Wire podcast, claimed that black Americans should care more about abortion, ‘black-on-black’ crime, education standards, and obesity. Owens also defended her and West's choice of clothing during Paris Fashion Week. This is when she brought Lizzo into her tirade. Owens said, “You know what we should’ve done, we should’ve put a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt on Lizzo. Maybe we could have gotten a lot of attention about obesity and how it’s actually killing black Americans.”

According to the CDC, obesity is one of the main causes of death in the US. CDC states that obesity is serious because it is associated with poorer mental health outcomes and reduced quality of life. In the United States and worldwide, obesity is also associated with the leading causes of death, including deaths from diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer. Meanwhile, Owens’ rant on the ‘White Lives Matter’ controversy started right at the top of her show after a photo of her and West in the shirts was posted across social media.

Owens said, “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. A t-shirt that says ‘White Lives Matter,’ which should be implied, right? White lives matter, black lives matter, Asian lives matter — it should be implied, yet people are angry and they are being vicious online because they can’t believe that we have the audacity to detract from the movement which is a lie: ‘Black Lives Matter.’”

In the meantime, Ye has also received a tonne of backlash on social media for the "White Lives Matter" statement. After leaving Kanye West's fashion presentation in protest, Jaden Smith, the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith wrote, "I Had To Dip Lol.” and subsequently added in a series of tweets, “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, referred to West's t-shirt choice as "disgusting." He fumed on Twitter, “Kanye West’s decision to wear a 'White Lives Matter' shirt is disgusting, dangerous, and irresponsible. Some of y’all will rush to defend him. You should ask yourselves why.” In his Instagram story on Tuesday, October 4, West defended the shirt and attacked the "Black Lives Matter" movement as a fraud.
