Candace Owens, the vociferous and contentious podcast host hailing from The Daily Wire, has been subjected to a suspension on the prominent video-sharing platform, YouTube.

The proclamation was unveiled on the day of Tuesday, emanating from none other than the esteemed comrade of the Daily Wire, Michael Knowles. Owens was scheduled to partake in a panel discussion known as Daily Wire Backstage, a forum wherein a confluence of esteemed hosts from the network convene to engage in intellectual discourse pertaining to current and pressing matters.

However, as elucidated by Knowles in subsequent discourse, the aforementioned events were rendered infeasible on the designated evening due to Owens' suspension from the platform. Furthermore, the potential jeopardy faced by the entire network's YouTube channel would be exacerbated should Owens make an appearance on camera. Consequently, the decision has been made to relocate the live stream to the exclusive domain of the subscription-based Daily Wire+ website.

"Indeed, it is evident that YouTube harbors a strong aversion towards our presence," Knowles declared.

Due to its ambiguous nature, certain individuals have labeled the guidelines in question as tyrannical, as they possess a tendency to suppress conservative viewpoints. Consequently, my acquaintance Candace has once more been barred from contributing or making appearances on any of the YouTube channels affiliated with the Daily Wire. It should not be surprising, given the current circumstances. Each and every member of our esteemed publication, The Daily Wire, has found themselves confined within the digital confines of YouTube's punitive measures, for various reasons," Knowles confidently affirmed.

As per the report by Media Matters, a representative from YouTube has duly acknowledged the suspension of Owen's channel on account of transgressing the platform's policy against hate speech.

"In accordance with our stringent hate speech policy, we have taken the necessary action of issuing a strike to the Candace Owens Podcast channel. This measure has been implemented due to the channel's infringement upon our guidelines, specifically pertaining to the dissemination of content that fosters animosity towards individuals or collectives that are safeguarded under our protective umbrella, such as the LGBTQ+ community," elucidated the representative from YouTube in an official declaration.

In the month of June, Media Matters astutely divulged that both Owens and Knowles had already accumulated a pair of YouTube strikes. In the event of a third infraction occurring within a span of 90 days, it is conceivable that the channel in question may face complete removal from the platform. Presently, the ascertainability of Owen's status within the 90-day timeframe remains nebulous, thereby raising the possibility of its complete removal from the aforementioned site.

Owens is well-acquainted with the practice of fomenting animosity towards the LGBTQ+ community through her platform, The Candace Owens Podcast. In the month of December in the year 2022, she advocated for an increase in discriminatory measures targeting individuals who identify as transgender and are perceived as unconventional or aberrant. In the month of June in the year 2022, she espoused the viewpoint that parents who accompany their children to drag shows ought to have their parental rights revoked, while also expressing her belief that the designation of Pride Month should be altered to "shame month."
