The Daily Wire news organization is parting ways with conservative pundit Candace Owens.

“Daily Wire and Candace Owens have ended their relationship,” announced Daily Wire CEO Jeremy Boreing on X Friday.

The split comes hours after Owens made a social media post critical of America funding Israel’s war on Palestine.

“My crime, is that I do not believe that American taxpayers should have to pay for Israel’s wars or the wars of any other country,” Owens wrote, adding, “I will not change my mind.”

“So the question is what will you do to me next? The world is watching.”

The decision was apparently made abruptly, as Owens closed out her Thursday episode by telling her audience, “We will see you tomorrow for a brand new episode.”

Earlier in the show, Owens mentioned having to walk a tightrope on subjects involving Israel.

Owens had previously clashed with the Wire’s most successful show host Ben Shapiro.

The Daily Beast has a breakdown on the spat:

The feud began last November when Owens tweeted that “no government anywhere has a right to commit a genocide.” While she did not specifically mention the State of Israel, her remarks were widely condemned by her fellow conservative media figures. Soon after, Shapiro publicly called Owens’ behavior “disgraceful” and chided her “faux-sophistication” on the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Days later, their feud became even more personal. Owens posted to X a series of Bible verses suggesting “you cannot serve both God and money.” That pointed remark was viewed by many as a not-so-subtle use of the antisemitic “dual loyalty” trope against Shapiro, who responded: “Candace, if you feel that taking money from The Daily Wire somehow comes between you and God, by all means quit.” Owens hit back that her boss was “utterly out of line” and “acting unprofessional and emotionally unhinged for weeks now.”

That same week, Owens appeared for a friendly interview on Tucker Carlson’s web show, where she lamented Shapiro’s “ad hominem attacks” and said she would not respond to him on a “level of intellect” because “there’s nothing that he has expressed… that he fundamentally disagrees with in terms of what I said.” Carlson agreed, taking issue with how Shapiro had skipped past saying “‘I don’t think she’s correct’ or ‘Maybe she doesn’t know what she’s talking about,’” and went straight to labeling her “absolutely disgraceful.”

The break also follows a recent interview a contentious interview between Owens and a Jewish rabbi, in which they debated “antisemetism.”

Hours ahead of the announcement, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) had criticized Owens after she was praised by America First podcast host Nick Fuentes.

Candace confirmed parting ways with the Wire on X, declaring, “I am finally free,” and hinting she’s planning new ventures.

The Wire’s dismissal of Owens comes as Israel is planning a military offensive on the Gazan city of Rafah, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying Friday he planned to “do it with the support of the U.S., but if we have to – we will do it alone.”
