A campus crowd erupted at the University at Albany when Daily Wire host Candace Owens responded to a student asking what Owens has to say about her mere presence “actively victimizing” students who do not identify with their gender.

During the TPUSA “LIVE FREE” tour, Owens, who is eight months pregnant and never one to shy away from being blunt, told the apparently offended student that “life’s tough” and suggested they “get a helmet.”

“What do you have to say to the trans students here who actively feel victimized by your presence, here?” the female student asked Owens.

Life’s tough, get a helmet, man. I’m too pregnant for this,” Owens responded, sparking applause from attendees.

The video clip, which was posted hours ago, already has nearly two million views.


Owens further opined, “I am over 8 months pregnant with two toddlers at home. If you are a 20-year-old adult who feels ‘actively victimized’ by my standing on stage to speak about social and economic conservatism, it is because your parents failed you, entirely.”


“It is not my job to coddle adults,” the BLEXIT founder added.
