Republican pundit Candace Owens called Tomi Lahren 'a vile human being,' after Lahren appeared to defend Kanye West on Twitter.
Earlier this week, West announced that he would be distancing himself from Twitter and denied being the brains behind Owens' 'Blexit' clothing line. “I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in,” he wrote.
In response, Owens posted a lengthy, self-pitying blog post, airing her disappointment in West. She even went as far as to deny that she ever said that West had designed the logo despite evidence to the contrary.
Attention-hungry Lahren, who never misses an opportunity to leap into some business which has nothing to do with her, couldn't wait to weigh in on the issue.
"Are you gonna turn on Kanye now? The ship was doomed to sink from the start but hunger for fame & money was placed over the movement. Funny how he was a “free thinker” before and now he’s a “traitor.” Sounds a lot like a tactic of the Left. You made your bed, now lie in it," Lahren tweeted.
Owens then unleashed a scathing response.
“Tomi, I think I can speak on behalf of people on both sides of the political aisle and say we are sorry about your failed career,” she sarcastically wrote in response. “The desperation to be relevant again by constantly subbing me and/or attacking @kathygriffin weekly—doesn’t bode well for any movement. Grow up.”
Fox Nation host Lahren then hit back with "I’m talking about Leftist tactics, conservative ideas & failure of identity politics. YOU are talking about ME. If you’re trying to bait me into some Twitter war, it’s not going to work. It’s not about us. You can threaten me or lob low blows about my career but I’m not playing."
According to The Daily Beast, Lahren isn't the only Conservative annoyed with Owens. The Conservative camp blame both Owens and Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk for driving West away.
"Today was a setback for everybody,” activist Ali Alexander, who advises a PAC bankrolled by the wealthy pro-Trump Mercer family, told his fans on a livestream. “They burned Kanye for clicks, clout, and fame,” he said.
The Daily Beast also reports that an unrelated group also called Blexit, which bills itself as an “economic disruption organization,” is threatening legal action.
Uh oh. It appears that the Conservatives are turning on each by the day. One thing Lahren is right about, Owens made her bed and she does now have to lie in it. That must be a bitter pill to swallow.
