Christina Applegate Slams Candace Owens’s ‘Horrifying’ Rant About Skims’s Wheelchair-Inclusive Ad



Ask and you shall receive. On March 23, Christina Applegate took Candace Owens up on her call to be educated about inclusivity. 

In her latest show of faux outrage, conservative talking head Candace Owens went on a rant about a Skims ad campaign that featured a model in a wheelchair. “I don’t really understand how far we’re going to take this inclusivity thing,” Owens said on her namesake podcast of the ad for Skims’s disability-inclusive Adaptive Collection, per Newsweek. The line in question features a range of undergarments with added hook-and-eye closures for accessibility.

Seemingly bothered by people with disabilities having access to underwear and bras, Owens continued, “If I’m wrong again, educate me; today, I just want to be educated in the comments. I don’t know why this needs to be done. I’m getting tired of this all-inclusivity thing. It seems ridiculous.” 

Applegate, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2021, took to Twitter in the early hours of March 23 to respond to these “fucking gross” comments. “Yes late tweet. But woke to see the most horrifying thing,” Applegate began. “This Candace person making comments about companies who see we need help. It’s fucking gross.” She ended the initial tweet with the hashtag “you should know better” but offered to educate Owens anyway in a follow-up post

“I thought my last tweet was enough. But then my heart said something else,” Applegate added. “No rage. If Candace wants to get on the phone with me and be educated on being disabled I will not come with anger. I will come with love. Because she needs to hear that. I pray for her tonight. Sincerely.”
