CANDACE Owens has slammed for her "bring back manly men" response to Harry Styles' new Vogue magazine cover.
The outspoken conservative started firing shots at the Watermelon Sugar singer over the weekend.
Following the reveal of Styles' Vogue cover, Owens tweeted: "There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence.
"It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."
The Vogue photographs show Styles wearing a selection of dresses and skirts.
In the article, Styles discusses his love for traditionally female clothes.
"I'll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing," he said, before confirming "you can never be overdressed. There's no such thing."
Alongside her tweets, Owens also discussed her distaste for the situation in an Instagram story on Sunday night.
"We have a lot going on in America right now and I feel like the one thing we really didn't need, is this" Owens said before posting a photograph of Styles in a ballgown.
She then shared a print screen of her tweet, before going on to ask "do you think anywhere in Russia or China or anywhere in the East men are wearing dresses and heels, just a serious question?"
Owens then went on to discuss a bizarre theory that "all of this is just part of a bigger plan to take down the West."
She then clarified that the photograph was of Harry Styles in this month's Vogue magazine, before saying "hide your kids, hide your wife."
The Republican received severe backlash for her comments, leading her to "clarify" what she meant on Twitter on Monday morning.
"Since I'm trending I’d like to clarify what I meant when I said "bring back manly men".
"I meant: Bring back manly men. Terms like "toxic masculinity", were created by toxic females. Real women don’t do fake feminism. Sorry I’m not sorry."
Among the backlash was actress Olivia Wilde, who told Owens "you're pathetic."
Later that day, Owens responded to someone's tweet that pictured musical icons Iggy Pop, Daivd Bowie and Kurt Cobain wearing dresses.
"PSA: Mining pictures on the internet of men in dresses is not going to suddenly make me attracted to men in dresses," she wrote.
"I’m impervious to woke culture. Showing me 50 examples of something won’t make it any less stupid."
She also added the hashtag "BringBackManlyMen" to the end of her tweet.
Styles himself does not appear to have yet commented on what Owens has said.
The former One Direction publicly endorsed President-elect Joe Biden last month, sharing a video of Biden with the caption: "If I could vote in America, I'd vote with kindness."
Owens has been very vocal about her support of President Donald Trump, who is projected to have lost the 2020 Election to Biden.
