Candace Owens trolled for drawing comparisons between OJ Simpson and Kyle Rittenhouse
An irate user said, 'Facts don’t matter to Candace Owens. Only money does' while some trolls called her a 'grifter'
Kyle Rittenhouse is currently on trial for shooting and killing two people during the Kenosha riots in 2020 in the aftermath of Jacob Blake's death due to police brutality. While his defense team argues he acted in self-defense, a section of Americans, as well as people around the globe following the case, think otherwise. It's feared that Rittenhouse, 18, who has been aggressively trolled for weeping on the stand at one of the hearings, will walk free when it all ends. Like his prosecution team, right-wing conservative Candace Owens too has lent her support to the teenager and believes he is not guilty of the charges against him.
Owens tweeted, "The kind of people who thought O.J Simpson was innocent are the same people who believe that Kyle Rittenhouse is guilty. Facts don’t matter to emotionally-indoctrinated zombies. Only feelings do." In other news, Owens also made her opinion known on Halyna Hutchins's death. Speaking on the high-profile case, she tweeted, "Is there any reason in particular that @AlecBaldwln____ hasn’t been arrested yet? Haven’t we learned that even when accidents happen with guns, the person on the other end of the gun is arrested for manslaughter? Amber Guyger was arrested within 3 days." Unsurprisingly, she was trolled for both tweets.
Internet says, 'it's a wonder to watch someone wrong about everything'
Candace Owens is no stranger to making her opinions known to her social media followers, some of which have been harshly received and things weren't any different this time around too. "It's a wonder to watch someone who is wrong about everything. Just breathtaking." a tweet read. "That's big talk from the folks who 'feel like the election was stolen' but don't have any proof. Get some empathy, please," responded another Twitter user. "Why does anyone even consider this person to be relevant? How does one not see right through the grift?" a third tweeted. "@RealCandaceO is my favorite crazy person to follow. I love waking up, watching her grift, and seeing those who actually believe her," quipped another user while another tweeted, "That's rich coming from you." Another tweet read, "Facts don’t matter to Candace Owens. Only money does."
Coming to Rittenhouse's trial, the closing arguments in the case will take place on November 15. Judge Bruce Schroeder on November 12 said he is inclined to allow jurors to consider lesser charges against the teenager. The jury could also consider second-degree intentional homicide, attempted second-degree homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and second-degree recklessly endangering safety.
