Shapiro was caught on a viral clip calling Owens “disgraceful” for her commentary on Israel – after she tweeted on Nov. 3 that “No government anywhere has a right to commit a genocide, ever,” referring to Israel’s response to the Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attack. “There is no justification for a genocide. I can’t believe this even needs to be said or is even considered the least bit controversial to state,” she continued.
Fast forward two weeks, when Shapiro was filmed talking to a group of people regarding Owens’ statements.
“I think her behavior during this has been disgraceful. Without a doubt,” he said. “I think that her faux sophistication on these particular issues has been ridiculous.”
Ben Shapiro blasted Candace Owens saying that she is absolutely disgraceful and basically wrong about her take on Arab Israel conflict.
What makes this interesting is that Ben Shapiro is the owner of the Daily Wire and Candace Owens works at the Daily Wire.

… Leading up to the spat, Shapiro publicly criticized Owens for “garbage” tweets in which she amplified left-wing blogger Max Blumenthal, who tweeted that “We White American Jews are living through a golden age of power, affluence and safety,” which he called a “welcome reality” that “threatens the entire Zionist enterprise, from lobby fronts like the ADL to the State of Israel, because Zionism relies on Jewish insecurity to justify itself.”
[So true. Glad a well-known Jewish writer had the balls to say this—presumably because they feel so safe and powerful.]
“I don’t know who Max Blumenthal is, but I do know that you have my number and could have informed me in earnest. Real relationships should trump Twitter theatre. Let’s set a better example going forward,” Owens replied to Shapiro after he blasted her.
