A laboratory in Colorado unceremoniously canceled an appointment from a patient seeking a coronavirus test after it learned that the patient in question was none other than conservative superstar Candace Owens.
As Fox News reports:
Conservative author and commentator Candace Owens was denied medical care in the form of a coronavirus test by a Colorado laboratory because of her political beliefs, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson reported Thursday.
Owens was sent a letter by Aspen Laboratories co-founder Suzanna Lee informing her that her “booking” was being cancelled and that she would be “denied service” because of both her aversion to governmental facemask mandates and her analysis of the effectiveness of vaccination shots.
“We cannot support anyone who has pro-actively worked to make this pandemic worse by spreading misinformation, politicizing, and discouraging the wearing of masks and actively dissuading people from receiving life-saving vaccinations,” Lee wrote in the letter obtained by “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

As promised— here is the email from the rabid activist declining to give me a test, plus my response to her. She clearly isn’t stable enough to work in health and is a danger to the Aspen community. pic.twitter.com/nV7xMGqVN3

Owens went on to explain that while she does not personally want to be tested, she now has to in order to engage in normal activities due to the draconian new policies of many businesses.
