“This is Vice, guys. She’s trying to troll this event,” Stein said to the camera. He went on to troll the Vice journalist as a crowd began to form as people laughed while Stein continued insulting Owens:
“She thinks all you guys are losers. That’s what she posts on the internet. She posts the most out-of-context stuff. See, Vice is the worst media company there is. They’re all liars, so what do you think about your crappy media company?”
Owen’s encounter with Stein did not end there; he went on to ask her if she was a drug addict and crooning to the camera, “she’s a loser right here.” “She’s the only one in a mask,” Stein ridiculed. “You see this? This is what a loser looks like.”
Stein kept making fun of Owen, who eventually told him she had a mask on because she was getting married in 2 weeks, to which Stein replied sarcastically, “That’s great! I wonder how many vaccines he has.”Stein kept hounding Owen as she walked around the floor, calling her “scared” and mask-shaming her.
“She’s the only one in a mask here!” Stein went on. “She probably has the coronavirus and the viral shedding. You guys see! This is a Vice journalist and a lying media company.”
Stein has hounded several individuals, including hurling crude remarks at Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who encountered Owen on Saturday. He started by making fun of her for wearing a face mask.
