Political commentator Candace Owens posted this on Facebook last night. As of this morning, it has been viewed more than 20 million times and shared nearly half a million times.
Not all of the comments are positive:
So easy for her to talk trash about him when he can’t stand there and speak up for himself. Shameful!
George Floyd never asked to be the martyr either, but that’s her words. No one says he lived a heroic lifestyle, she did.
I wouldn’t care if he was caught committing 5 crimes he didn’t deserve to die like an animal in the street. He may not been amazing, however he was a human being.
No one is protesting because George Floyd was a ‘Great Person’ Candace. No one needs to die just because he was a bad guy. Due process for all Americans.
