“Candace Owens is using the national civil unrest to get another paycheck.
It takes a special kind of person to speak ill of the dead, especially when that person died in the way George Floyd died.
But conservative commentator Candace Owens took that stance in a viral Facebook live video recorded earlier today titled “Confession: I DO NOT support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr”.
The video has been shared more than 360,000 times in under 10 hours.
Floyd, a 46-year-old black man from Minneapolis, died last week after he was handcuffed and held down by three white police officers.
One of the officers, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with murder and manslaughter after being filmed pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes.
