Candace Owens posted a video to social media that is going viral as she called out “hyper-privileged liberals” over their pro-abortion rants that are encouraging black people to protest.
A number of celebrities have expressed their outrage over the Supreme Court’s recent decision overruling Roe v. Wade.
Owens took issue with celebrity abortion activist Amy Schumer who claimed the high court based its ruling on the “intentions of a bunch of slave-owning rapists who’ve been dead for hundreds of years.”
“If there’s a picket sign anywhere, Amy Schumer picks it up – she just is like ‘I have to be outside screaming about something,’” Owens said. “Roe V. Wade gets overturned and hyper-privileged liberals want black people to protest on their behalf? Again? No. Not this time.”
“This is a Hollywood trope almost,” she added. “White wealthy women in Hollywood love to basically say ‘I either get what I want, or I’m going to correlate to slavery.’ This is their thing.” Watch the clip of Owens:

Owens went on to accuse leftists like Schumer of using black people and racism on issues that “have nothing to do with race.”
“She’s using this because she’s being whiny and she’s being bratty, and she thinks it’s acceptable to harness black pain to get what she wants,” Owens blasted, comparing Schumer’s argument to how Black Lives Matter raised money and support following George Floyd’s death in May 2020.
Owens then mentioned the hypocrisy in bringing up the racism of slavery to defend pro-abortion positions, referencing the racist connections of Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger, whose birth control project specifically targeted black communities.
“The black population today would be double if it weren’t for Planned Parenthood,” Owens said.
