"He will absolutely capitulate because he has no choice in the matter, and I have to say good for Black Lives Matter," Owens told Fox News on Wednesday.
She went on to claim that the organization "view themselves as Marxist," before claiming "they will take what they have to take by force."
In the petition, Black Lives Matter Global network wrote that "appointing a Black woman to this seat is nonnegotiable — this must be done."
"If there is not a single Black woman in the Senate, then the Senate is simply not a proper representation of the people," it continued.
Slamming the petition, Owens said: "So them writing to him is basically saying you’re going to do as we say, and I believe you’re going to see that Gavin Newsom will do as they say.
"This is what happens when you don’t have a spine to stand up to people in the beginning. You know, when they’re rioting and looting and you’re calling this a peaceful protest.
She continued: "This is what happens in the end. You start to manifest this idea that they are in power and they are in control and you are just puppets in office that will do their bidding.
"So I think this is good, he’s going to have to deal with this, he’s going to have to deal with this the right way, and I bet you anything, he’s going to capitulate and put a black person in office."
Owens has recently been under fire for her criticism of Harry Styles wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.
Pro-Trump author Owens, 31, lashed out in response to photos of ex One Direction heartthrob Styles, the first man ever to grace the front of US Vogue.
The Watermelon Sugar singer, 26, is pictured in a series of frilly frocks and a kilt, and tells the mag's December issue: "There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes."
Owens retweeted the cover to her 2.7million followers, adding: "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 right-wing controversialist retaliated to backlash that she received by saying: "Sorry, I'm not sorry."
