Candace Owens attacks Harry Styles for wearing dress on Vogue cover

Candace Owens has doubled down on her criticism of Harry Styles, renewing her calls to ‘bring back manly men’ days after she slammed the former One Direction star for wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.

Styles, 26, made history last week as the first ever solo male cover star of US Vogue in its 127-year history - and for the occasion he opted to shake things up with his sartorial choices, donning a ball gown and a custom Gucci jacket.

Right-wing activist Owens took umbrage to the singer’s shoot on Saturday, writing: ‘There is no society that can survive without strong men … bring back manly men.’

In what she described as ‘the steady feminization of our men’, in a thread of tweets on Monday morning Owens addressed the controversy her comments have since provoked and sought also to reiterate her stance on the matter.

‘Since I’m trending I’d like to clarify what I meant when I said “bring back manly men”,’ she wrote in response to the backlash Monday. ‘I meant: Bring back manly men.

‘Terms like “toxic masculinity”, were created by toxic females. Real women don’t do fake feminism,’ she continued. ‘Sorry I’m not sorry.’

‘I’m impervious to woke culture,’ she said. ‘Showing me 50 examples of something won’t make it any less stupid. #BringBackManlyMen.’

Right-wing commentator Matt Walsh also waded in to voice support of Owen’s comments, writing that she was trending on Twitter ‘because of a bunch of whiney idiots are mad that she said men who wear aren’t manly.

‘Her statement, of course, is true and utterly self-evident, and would have provoked no reaction as recently as a decade ago,’ Walsh continued.

In response, Owens said: ‘Wait until they find out that I also think women should be feminine – and I enjoy cooking for and taking care of my husband. DEFCON 1’, accompanied by a GIF of Elmo engulfed in flames.
