Candace Owens was let go from her hosting position at the Daily Wire due to her supervisors’ dissatisfaction with what they perceived as her continual endorsement of antisemitism…usnewsdaily.net has learned.

Although there was no formal explanation given, insiders with firsthand knowledge tell us that the conservative media business fired Candace early this week due to her comments that they perceived as antisemitic. The announcement was made on Friday morning.

Due to their divergent opinions on the Israel-Gaza conflict, Candace and fellow Daily Wire presenter Ben Shapiro have been embroiled in a highly publicized social media dispute. Rumor has it that Candace’s appearance on the “Fresh and Fit” podcast on March 8 was the final straw for the Daily Wire.

As the hosts and Candace discussed Ben’s falling out, the show would play a cha-ching sound effect whenever Ben or his Israeli wife were brought up. This was a clear reference to the antisemitic joke about Jews and money.

Although Candace didn’t say anything to disparage Ben, rumors have arisen that she remained silent to support him or denounce the antisemitism. To be fair, it’s not entirely apparent if she was aware of that sound effect when the podcast was being recorded.

Executives at Daily Wire reportedly spoke with Candace in the past to try to understand her viewpoint since they didn’t want to suppress her, but they believed the podcast episode went too far.

As Candace frequently bragged about being one of the best communicators in the media, as one insider described it, the Daily Wire executives believed “she knew what she was doing.”

Additionally, we are informed that Shapiro had no influence over the decision to fire Candace and lacked the authority to do so.

When Candace discussed her conflict with Ben on “The Breakfast Club” on Thursday, she clarified that she wasn’t anti-Semitic or anti-Israel; rather, she was just against genocide in all its manifestations. The same is insisted upon by a source close to Candace, who says, “She’s obviously not an antisemite.”

We have contacted Candace’s representatives and the Daily Wire for comment, but we have not heard back as of yet.
