Candace Owens Reacts To Rumors She’s Contracted COVID-19 After “Sudden Illness” Reportedly Keeps Her From Speaking Event

Candace Owens has responded to rumors that a ‘sudden illness’ that caused her to cancel a speaking engagement is actually COVID-19. However, what she has not done is to actually deny the rumor.

In a tweet, Owens called it a “conspiracy theory” and hinted that she’s actually on vacation instead, but never did clearly and firmly deny that she’s sick. However, only days before she had boasted that she slept next to her husband while he had the virus, and traveled to multiple countries and states, without ever catching it.

Zachary Petrizzo, who writes for Salon, shared on Twitter this weekend that a speaker at the Texas Youth Summit, on Friday, had said Candace Owens hadn’t been able to make it to the event due to a sudden illness.

Of course, this quickly got picked up and people began to speculate whether the illness in question was COVID-19. After all, only days before, Owens had boasted about taking risks with travel, contact, and masking.

However, Owens responded to this Monday morning, using a screenshot of a tweet from actor Ken Olin. Olin questioned why Owens would suddenly pull out of speaking engagements and, in his words, “seemingly vanish.” Could it be COVID-19, he wondered?

Owens posted the screenshot along with her response, saying that she’s with her family atop an Aspen mountain and has poor reception — but she never actually denied being ill.

She did not deny reporting herself as ill and unable to attend the Texas Youth Summit, nor explain the reason for a sudden trip when she was on the list of confirmed speakers for the event as of the 26th.
