Christina Applegate BLASTS Candace Owens After She Called SKIMS Wheelchair Model ‘Ridiculous’

Christina Applegate Slammed the conservative pundit for her remarks on resurfaced SKIMS ad.

On her Daily Wire podcast, Owens, 33, recently attacked an eleven-month-old SKIMS ad that featured Haleigh Rosa, a model and disability advocate with a wheelchair.

“I don’t really understand how far we’re going to take this inclusivity thing. I really don’t get it. I don’t know. If I’m wrong, again, educate me, today. I just want to be educated in the comments. Why did they do this? I don’t know, I don’t know why this needs to be done. I’m just getting tired of this all-inclusivity thing. It seems ridiculous,” she said.

“Look, I assume that people who’re in wheelchairs also have to buy bras, also have to buy underwear…I didn’t know that we needed to see that in our face. I didn’t know that now we’re going to have to look forward to campaigns where women who are in wheelchairs are now wearing bras and underwear because we as a society cannot get to the bottom of our ridiculousness,” she added.

Following her comments, Applegate, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2021, took to her Twitter account and slammed Candace for her statement.

“Yes late tweet.But woke to see the most horrifying thing. This Candace person making comments about companies who see we need help. It’s fucking gross. I thank skims and Tommy and Guide beauty and @neowalksticks for seeing http://us.To you #youshouldknowbetter,” she wrote.

“Going to try and sleep but my rage is keeping me awake. Candace Owens, do you know when you have seen pictures of me how fucking hard it was to get my clothes on? A team has to help me!!! So I’m excited for accessibility clothing for me and my community.Hope u wake,” the Dead to Me star added in a second tweet.

“I thought my last tweet was enough. But then my heart said something else. No rage. If Candace wants to get on the phone with me to 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.”
