Candace Owens On Dave Chappelle Bit: ‘I Have A Sense Of Humor!’

Responding to a joke made by Dave Chappelle in his recent special that focused on her, Candace Owens said that unlike leftists, she has a sense of humor.

Owens: “I Think Comedians SHOULD Make Fun Of People”

In Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special, “8:46,” a reference to the amount of time George Floyd had a knee on his neck before he died, the comedian included a bit about Candace Owens and her reaction to the incident.

“I seen Candace Owens try to convince white America, ‘Don’t worry about it. He’s a criminal anyway,’” Chappelle said. “I don’t give a f**k what this n**** did. I don’t care what this n**** did. I don’t care if he personally kicked Candace Owens in her stanky p****. I don’t know if it stanks, but I imagine it does. If I ever find out, I’ll let you know for sure. I’ll tell like Azealia Banks. I’ll tell.”

Instead of crying about the insult from the comedian like most leftists would likely do, Candace Owens instead noted that she had a sense of humour.

“I think comedians SHOULD make fun of people,” she tweeted. “Dave Chappelle is one of the greatest comedians of all time and I made it into one of his specials. That’s POWER!”

Owens added that the country has “arrived too suddenly into a culture where people can’t laugh at themselves, or want to restrain comedians,” adding that she will “never be a part of that culture.” Owens concluded by calling Chappelle a “legend,” and by challenging him to “say any of that to my face! All love!”

We Can’t Be Too Offended By Comedy

Owens wasn’t the only conservative that Chappelle targeted in her special. At one point, the comedian deviated to defending Lebron James from some criticism that he once faced from Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“Lebron James once said something about racism and Laura Ingraham – which I will say publicly anywhere, anytime, is a c***; tell them I said it – told one of Ohio’s greatest residents ever, ‘shut up and dribble,’” Chappelle said.

Personally, Chappelle is one of my favorite “liberal” comedians – he’s gone after anyone and everyone, regardless of politics, and has never kow-towed to the leftist outrage politics. While some of what he said was distasteful, Owens is right! We shouldn’t be too offended from jokes made by comedians – I think Owens showed everyone else how to respond to one of these digs.
