Author and political commentator Candace Owens threatened to sue rapper Cardi B after a Twitter argument between the two public figures escalated on Tuesday.
While speaking on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, Owens reacted to Cardi B’s Grammy performance. “We are seeing the destruction of American values and principals,” Owens said about the performance. “I think parents should be terrified.”
“This is not the patriarchy that’s keeping young women down. It’s displays like this, displays of blatant nudity and sexualization, that is keeping women down in this society,” Owens said.
Cardi B faced criticism over her provocative Grammy performance with some viewers saying the performance was “not family-friendly” enough to be aired on television.
Initially, Cardi B shared Owen’s Fox News segment to her Twitter account, writing “Yaaaayyyyyyy WE MADE FOX NEWS GUYS !!! Wap wap wap”
A heated Twitter argument later broke out between Owens and Cardi B following Owen’s Fox News segment.
“Matter fact I’m just going to thank Candy,” Cardi B tweeted. “She put my performance on Fox News giving it more views that boosted the views on YouTube and is counting towards my streams and sales. STREAM UP AND WAP. REMEMBER GROWN PARENTS ONLY YOU CAN MONITOR WHAT YOUR KIDS WATCH NO1 ELSE.”
“That performance was disgusting,” Owens tweeted.
Owens further said that Cardi B was like a “cancer cell to culture.”
After some back-and-forth between the women, Cardi B posted images of tweets, supposedly from Owen’s account, that read, “Yes, my husband did cheat on me with my brother. Yes, he said no when I asked to join them.”
Owens responded and said the tweets were photoshopped.
Cardi B claims the tweets weren’t photoshopped because many news outlets used them in their articles.
Owens then threatened to sue Cardi B. “I am 100% suing Cardi for that nonsense. You can’t just start throwing out wild lies against private members of my family because you’re upset someone called your out on your degenerate performance,” Owens tweeted.
In return, Cardi B threatened to sue Owens. “I’m going to sue candy for claiming I photoshopped a tweet that dozens of articles reported about back in November 2016z. First she claim me and my team photoshopped it now it was a fake tweet. Which one is it. Everyone is free to Google.”
After threats of legal action, the two continued fighting. Owens then posted a 13-minute video to her Instagram account reiterating her intent to sue Cardi B, to which Cardi Bresponded on Twitter, “Not candy doing a whole 13 minute video of this s*** on IG.”

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts
After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.
Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”
National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”
Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.
National Review reports:
“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.
He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
