Candace Owens Regarding Ahmaud Arbery: ‘Please Stop with the Just A Jogger Bullsh*t Narrative’

*We’re not saying Candace Owens doesn’t think the killing of Ahmaud Arbery is not a big deal, but based on the words her thumbs recently tweeted, it’s kinda hard to think otherwise.

Over Mother’s Day weekend, the black conservative just straight up downplayed the horrible incident which some characterize as a modern-day lynching.

Owens, fresh off her temporary ban by Twitter for saying stupid ish, used her return to the platform to say more stupid ish. This time, of course, it was regarding the Arbery murder incident.

Here’s what the racially confused, conservative talking head tweeted to her 2.2 million followers:

“Ahmaud Arbery was caught on camera breaking into an unfinished property that was owned by Larry English. His mother has confirmed it is him in the video. Please stop with the “just a jogger” bullshit narrative. Avid joggers don’t wear khaki shorts & stop to break into homes.”

A few minutes later, while continuing his jog, Arbery was run up on and shot down by father and son duo, Gregory and Travis McMichael for basically being black on a sunny day. Of course, their “official” excuse was they THOUGHT was someone they suspect of robberies in the neighborhood.

In any event that fact didn’t stop Owens from also posting this:

“We went from ‘just a jogger’ to ‘just a trespasser’ real quick. That’s because a lie makes it way around the world before the truth gets out of bed. Our media is despicable.”

And as far as Arbery stopping to view the construction site, the Arbery family attorneys (Benjamin L. Crump, Esq., S. Lee Merritt, Esq., L. Chris Stewart, Esq.) have this response:

“Our office has reviewed the surveillance video which appears to show a person, believed to be Ahmaud Arbery, entering a property under construction. The individual remains on the property for under 3 minutes before continuing to jog down the road. This video is consistent with the evidence already known to us. Ahmaud Arbery was out for a jog. He stopped by a property under construction where he engaged in no illegal activity and remained for only a brief period. Ahmaud did not take anything from the construction site. He did not cause any damage to the property. He remained for a brief period of time and was not instructed by anyone to leave but rather left on his own accord to continue his jog. Ahmaud’s actions at this empty home under construction were in no way a felony under Georgia law. This video confirms that Mr. Arbery’s murder was not justified and the actions of the men who pursued him and ambushed him were unjustified. We reiterate, Ahmaud Arbery did not take part in ANY felony, had no illegal substances in his system, was not armed yet was shot three times with a shotgun at close range.”

After she became a number one trending topic for the outrage over her tweets, Owens tweeted this:

“I see I’m trending so let me clarify: I WILL NOT BE A SLAVE TO THE DEMOCRAT RACE NARRATIVE. NOT TODAY. NOT TOMORROW. NOT EVER. I WILL NOT PRETEND TO LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE BLACKS ARE HUNTED, TO SATISFY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA MASTERS. I DO NOT SEEK APPROVAL, I SEEK FREEDOM.”

As you can imagine, Owens’ tweets created a lot of online outrage. Check out some reactions below.
