- Candace Owens and her husband inquired about the services of interior designer David Netto, who responded with a nasty message.
- Netto suggested that Owens and her husband had ties to January 6, seemingly justifying his response.
- Owens responded by informing Netto that he was spreading falsehoods about her family and highlighting the left’s position on forcing people to serve those they fundamentally disagree with.
Conservative commentator Candace Owens and her husband George Farmer were looking for an interior designer to work on their home when they came across David Netto’s work in a Nashville home. They inquired about Netto’s services via his website, but Netto’s response was anything but pleasant.
He said he’d “rather get beat in the a** with a wooden plank than ever go near either of you.” When asked about the exchange by Vanity Fair, Netto suggested that Owens and Farmer had ties to January 6, seemingly justifying his response.
Owens fired back at Netto, informing him that he was spreading falsehoods about her family. She pointed out that she was nine months pregnant on January 6, 2021, and her husband was not running the social media platform Parler at the time of the Capitol breach, contrary to Netto’s suggestion.
She also informed Netto that the CEO of Parler at the time was a man named John Matze, not her husband. The Daily Wire reached out to Netto for comment but did not receive an immediate response.
Owens also raised a question about the left’s position on forcing people to serve those they fundamentally disagree with, highlighting that she didn’t believe people should be forced to serve those they fundamentally disagree with.
The Daily Wire asked Netto his position on the issue but did not receive an immediate response. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Owens also made the point that, by liberal standards, Netto’s response to her would have generated major waves in the media. Owens, however, is a black woman who is conservative, not liberal, so she doesn’t fit the bill.
Netto has insisted that his response to Owens and Farmer was not about race.
