Candace Owens finds it ‘hilarious’ a COVID testing center doesn’t want her business
Conservative analyst and author Candace Owens said in a tweet Wednesday that a COVID-19 testing lab refused her request for a test, citing her “spreading misinformation” about the pandemic.
“I just received an e-mail from a Covid testing facility that they are REFUSING to administer a test to me because they don’t like my politics. INSANE,” Owens wrote on Twitter.
“I’ve just learned of this testing request and as the owner of this business am going to cancel this booking and refuse service,” the email said.
“My team and myself have worked overtime, to exhaustion, unpaid and underpaid this past year, spending our own capital to ensure that our community remains protected,” the email reads. “It would be unfair to them and to the sacrifices we have all made this year to serve you.”
“Truly, I’ve never laughed harder,” Owens wrote in response. “Nothing screams ‘I love my community’ quite like refusing to test people who are going to a local event and wish to ensure they are negative and therefore do not spread the virus.”
Both parties accused each other of politicizing the pandemic in their respective letters.
Owens, who has said she isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19, faced backlash last year for some of her comments about the pandemic, including alleging on Twitter that “the virus was never as fatal” as experts said.
