The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens roasted D-list celebrities who have made a “mass exodus” from Twitter under Elon Musk’s ownership and joked the list “reads sort of like a 1990s year book of people that” peaked in the 90’s.
Owens made the comments on Thursday during the “Candace Owens” show as she talked about people like Whoopi Goldberg, Gigi Hadid, Amber Heard, Jim Carrey and more who have left the platform since Musk’s takeover “because they just can’t bear free speech.”
“It’s very upsetting to them,” the host explained. “That the government is no longer controlling what we are saying to to one another via fact checkers and censoring stories taking out the New York Post for sharing the truth about Hunter Biden. They need that. That’s a better world for them. They want a world that is not real, but a world that is controlled.”
“And so many of them have lined up, issued statements and said ‘You can no longer hear my thoughts in 180 characters or less, because I won’t stand for this. I won’t stand for the first amendment,'” she added. “And the list of people reads sort of like a 1990s yearbook of people that, you know, you look in the yearbook in the nineties like, oh, I remember, I remember that person he peaked in elementary school or he peaked in middle school, peaked in high school.”
“First and foremost, Whoopi Goldberg, I will never hate on her,” Owens continued. “She was so good in the ‘Sister Act.’ She definitely peaked in the ‘Sister Act.’ Loved her. You can no longer find her thoughts on Twitter. Moby, I didn’t know who that was, but somebody reminded me that that was a a singer or performer, an artist of some description and he performed at Woodstock in 1999. So yeah he peaked in the 90s.”
Owens continued torching other people she said who peaked in the 90s, like singer Toni Braxton and WWF wrestler “[Mick] Foley who … peaked in the 90’s” and singer “Sara Bareilles … She has a wonderful, wonderful voice. But I have to be completely honest, I did not know that she was even on Twitter, but now she’s no longer on Twitter.”
“Gigi Hadid, we all know the model,” the DW host explained. “Gigi Hadid, I guess my question is, do models speak? Were models speaking? Was that a thing or if it was a thing, it’s a thing no longer because Gigi Hadid is not going to be speaking then. Of course, this one really took me by surprise. Amber Heard she is very relevant.”
“We just watched a trial in which we learned that she sometimes goes to the bathroom on her boyfriend’s bed when she gets upset,” she added. “And I have to be honest, I find it mildly inappropriate that she left Twitter, especially because Elon Musk, her ex-boyfriend, took it over because Elon Musk, don’t forget, he dated her right after she accused Johnny Depp of all of these terrible things … He [Musk] issued a nice tweet back when he didn’t own Twitter about Amber Heard, said she was lovely, nothing bad …”
Owens then named another person who she said very much peaked “in the nineties with wonderful movies” who announced they were leaving Twitter and included a “bizarre” video in his post that’s since gone viral.
“I’m going to read you his tweet,” the host shared. “It says ‘I’m leaving Twitter. But first, here’s a cartoon I made with my friend Jimmy Hayward. It’s based on my painting of a crazy old lighthouse keeper standing naked in a storm, summoning the angels and shining his lamp to guide us through a treacherous night. I love you all so much!'”
“And I’m sad that Jim Carrey is leaving,” she added. “And, you know, it’s really on brand for him to kind of just leave it with a crazy video, because at the end of the day, Jim Carrey’s gotta Jim Carrey, and I think his actual character in real life is some semblance of all of the characters that he’s played on the screen for us. I think he’s still the ‘Ace Ventura,’ the guy that got pooped out by a hippopotamus, and ‘Ace Ventura’ is who Jim Carrey actually is. What a bizarre cartoon, guys.”
“All of this to say it’s a sad day,” Owens continued. “Mourn, be sad. All of these wonderful people that peaked in the nineties are no longer with us on Twitter. Rest In Peace, peeps. And that’s all I have to say about that.”
