Candace Owens continued her attack on George Floyd, the Black Minnesota man who was killed in police custody on May 25.
Owens told her Twitter followers George Floyd "is being upheld as an amazing human being."
She detailed his criminal history, which includes 8 arrests between 1997 and 2005 in Harris County, Texas. Floyd, 46, allegedly held a woman against her will at gunpoint before searching her house for drugs and money.
"Everyone is pretending that this man lived a heroic lifestyle," Owens said. "We are embarrassing in that regard. Nobody wants to tell the truth in Black America. Our biggest problem is us. "I have no apologies to make. George Floyd is not my martyr. He can be yours."
Owens agreed that, despite his criminal history, Floyd's family deserved justice because he was a man being.
"Not every Black American is a criminal. Not every Black American is committing crimes. But we are unique in that we are the only people that fight and scream and demand support for the people in our community that are up to no good. You would be hard-pressed to find a Jewish person who has spent five stints in prison, who commits a crime and dies while committing a crime and that the Jewish people demand justice for."
She continued, "You would be hard-pressed to find this in white America -- even in Latino America. What I am saying is not any defense for Derek Chauvin. The family of George Floyd deserves justice for the way that he died but I also am not going to accept the narrative that this is the best the Black community has to offer. For whatever reason it has become fashionable over the last five or six years for us to turn criminals into heroes overnight. It is something I find despicable."
In a follow-up post, Owens wrote: "Confession: #GeorgeFloyd is neither a martyr or a hero. But I hope his family gets justice."
Derek Chauvin, the ex Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck causing his death, was fired from the police force and arrested. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison upgraded his charges to second-degree murder.
In addition to Chauvin (pictured 2nd from right), three former officers who pinned Floyd to the ground and stood by while he died were also charged in Floyd's murder on Wednesday, June 3.
Former Minneapolis officers J. Alexander Kueng, (pictured 2nd from left), Thomas Lane (left), and Tou Thao (far right) are all in custody, charged with aiding and abetting and second-degree murder and aiding and abetting and second-degree manslaughter. Kueng is set to appear in court on Thursday. If convicted on all charges, they face a maximum of 40 years in prison.
