Controversial right-wing commentator Candace Owens and the Daily Wire have ended their relationship, which was confirmed by Daily Wire CEO Jeremy Boreing in a post on X. Owens had joined the Daily Wire in 2021 and hosted a weekday commentary show for the website. Shortly after Boreing’s announcement, Owens confirmed her departure from the Daily Wire and hinted at upcoming announcements in the future through her personal channels.

Owens’s exit from the Daily Wire reportedly follows months of tension between her and co-founder Ben Shapiro over her promotion of various anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. Owens has been critical of Israel’s military response in Gaza following the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians. Her comments that appeared to be directed at Israel garnered backlash from Shapiro, who supports Israel, and was seen calling her behavior “absolutely disgraceful.”

Throughout her time at the Daily Wire, Owens has delivered commentary perceived as anti-Semitic, including suggesting that a Jewish “gang” in Hollywood is committing “horrific things” and liking a post that promoted an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. Owens has faced criticism from the Anti-Defamation League for her vitriolic anti-Semitic rhetoric, which has been praised by white supremacist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.

In response to the ADL’s accusations, Owens expressed gratitude that the organization had targeted her, stating that their attacks would have the opposite effect. Owens also addressed the power dynamics within the Daily Wire, stating on “The Breakfast Club” talk show that Shapiro did not have the authority to fire her, and attributing their disagreements to his emotional attachment to Israel due to his wife being Israeli.

Owens’s show on the Daily Wire tackled political and cultural issues of the day, offering deep dives, investigations, and exposés on burning topics. Following her departure from the Daily Wire, Owens announced plans to bring back her show on her personal YouTube channel after a brief hiatus. She encouraged fans who want to support her work to visit her website or make a donation on the Revv platform, hinting at further announcements to come in the future.

The circumstances surrounding Owens’s exit from the Daily Wire remain unclear, with neither the company nor Owens elaborating on the specific reasons for the split. However, the divide has been attributed to tensions over her anti-Semitic rhetoric and her criticism of Israel’s response to the Hamas attacks. Owens’s departure marks a significant change for both her and the Daily Wire, setting the stage for her to continue her commentary through her personal platforms.
