Candace Owens diverged from many other conservative commentators by reportedly stating that she now believes some of the sexual abuse allegations made against comedian-turned-political-commentator Russell Brand may be credible after all.
Several women have come forward this past weekend to accuse the British comedian of sexual assault.
In 2012, a woman from California went to a rape crisis center the same evening as the alleged assault and revealed texts that she claims were sent by Brand apologizing for his actions and behavior.
I do not in any capacity support the MeToo movement. I do not simply believe allegations. I wanted to be able to understand the allegations, and I’ll tell you why I pressed pause before I said anything about Russell Brand, because Russell Brand, who is now a reformed addict, he will never stop being an addict.” Owens said.
“I understand that when people are in their addictions, the things that they can do can be incomprehensible, unimaginable, the way that their brains function, the way that they pathologically lie, their impulses,” Owens continued.
“I find at least in the circumstance of the woman from Los Angeles that her allegations are credible. That’s gonna get me into a lot of trouble.” she added.
On the Tuesday episode of her podcast, The Candace Owens Podcast, Owens addressed the charges after appearing on Brand’s YouTube show just six days prior.
Ownes mentioned Brand’s prior struggles with sex and heroin addiction.
As she came to a conclusion, Owens expressed skepticism regarding the timing of the charges coming to light, noting that it was around the same time that he started making loud political and social commentary.
