Candace Owens responds to ’emotionally unstable’ COVID testing center owner who denied her service
Conservative commentator Candace Owens revealed that she was denied service at a COVID-19 testing facility over her political stances.
“Holy crap!! 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,” Owens tweeted Wednesday.
“INSANE. I’m banned from making sure I don’t accidentally spread Covid? Going live with the e-mail on Instagram in 10 mins!” she continued.
Owens followed up her accusation with a tweet stating she plans to share the email with her 7 million combined Twitter and Instagram followers.
“As promised— here is the email from the rabid activist declining to give me a test, plus my response to her. She clearly isn’t stable enough to work in health and is a danger to the Aspen community,” she tweeted along with screenshots of the email.
“I’ve just learned of this testing request, and as the owner of this business am going to refuse this booking and deny service. We cannot support anyone who has pro-actively worked to make this pandemic worse by spreading misinformation, politicizing and DISCOURAGING the wearing of masks and actively dissuading people from receiving life-saving vaccinations,” Suzanna Lee wrote in the first half of her email to Owens.
“The only other local testing option is the free kiosk by city hall,” Lee continued.
“They mail their tests to Texas and have inconsistent result times, do not take appointments, so its walk in only midday weekdays in their back alley,” Lee added.
Lee goes on to tell Owens that her team has worked “unpaid and underpaid” this past year to the point of “exhaustion.” She says it would be unfair to her team and “to the sacrifices we have all made this year to serve you.”
Owens posted her response to Lee on her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“I wanted to let you know that this might objectively be the most hilarious e-mail I have ever received in my life,” Owens wrote back.
“Truly, I’ve never laughed harder. Nothing screams ‘this virus isn’t political’ quite like googling the names of people who book tests with you and determining on a case by case basis whether or not you will let them comply with your community covid measures,” Owens continued.
“Nothing screams ‘I live my local community’ quite like refusing to test people who are going to a local event and wish to sure they’re negative and therefore do not spread the virus. That nobody stopped you from hitting send on such an emotionally unstable and hysterical e-mail leads me to believe that the people who work for you must love me, and would therefore never deny me this entertainment,” she added.
“It’s hard to pick just one, but I think the best part of your virtue-signaling rant is the arrogant assumption that you’re the only person who can administer a covid test from here to Texas,” she says.
Owens ends her email with a “LOL.”
Owens responded to her critics who pointed out her past support for businesses turning down individuals they choose not to serve.
“I literally do not care that she turned me down (as a private business). Just pointing to the OBVIOUS FACT that she (and ALL of you lefties) know that this pandemic is fake. If you were legitimately fearful you would encourage testing of the unvaxxed in your neighborhood,” Owens says.
