Conservative provocateur Candace Owens said the owner of a facility in Aspen refused to give her a COVID-19 test due to her political beliefs.

"I was banned from taking a Covid test because of my politics!" Owens said Wednesday night on Twitter, linking to redacted images of an email exchange with someone she identified as the owner of an Aspen laboratory that performs several types of rapid COVID-19 tests....

“My assistant comes to me and her face is white, and she’s like, 'You are not going to believe this, we just received an email from the COVID facility that they are declining to give you a test because of who you are,'” said Owens, who added that the facility must have looked her up online since she registered for the test under her married name.

“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 life-saving vaccinations,” continued the email, which appeared to be from someone named Suzanna Lee.
