GoFundMe Suspends Conservative Candace Owens’s Account For ‘Spreading Hate’ Against Black Community
GoFundMe on Sunday suspended conservative activist Candance Owens’ account from its platform and took down the page with her campaign for Dykes, an Alabama cafe whose owner called George Floyd a ‘thug.’”
Owens, who has claimed that Floyd is nor “martyr” is often at the center of controversies as she attempts to raise her profile in ways that have also caused her to be suspended by Twitter.
GoFundMe issued a statement that says: “GoFundMe has suspended the account associated with Candace Owens and the GoFundMe campaign has been removed because of a repeated pattern of inflammatory statements that spread hate, discrimination, intolerance and falsehoods against the black community at a time of profound national crisis. These actions violate our terms of service.”

Owens raised more than $200,000 on the site before the suspension. The money raised so far will go to the cafe owner, according to The Daily Beast.
The Beast noted that “Owens has become one of the right’s most prominent critics of Floyd and the protests held after his killing, with one video she made highlighting his criminal record going viral on Facebook.
