“If you dropped this bulls**t at my front door, it would be considered a hate crime,” Black conservative Candace Owens replied Tuesday to a failed Democrat congressional candidate who tweeted an image representing a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) hood to her.

@TwitterSafety should have this count FULLY deleted for this type of racist harassment,” Owens added in her tweet replying to Liam O’Mara after he tweeted the image to her with the message: ”Yikes. You may’ve dropped this.”

O’Mara, who lost in the November 2020 congressional election in California’s 42nd district, was replying to a tweet by Owens noting the prevalence of Black crime:

“The #1 violent offenders against black people are other black people.

“The #1 violent offenders against Asian Americans are also black people.

“But both #BlackLivesMatter and #AsianLivesMatter are campaigns dedicated to stomping out white supremacy because, clown world.”

Owens tweeted a call for Twitter Safety to remove O’Mara’s account:

“If this account is not removed from @TwitterSafety, then they are allowing racist harassment and threats against black people. Sending photos of a klansmen hood is a threat—plain and simple.”
