Candace Owens Says Juneteenth Is ‘So Lame, I’ll Be Celebrating July 4th Only’, Gets Major Backlash
Being a trending topic on Twitter for her controversial remarks hasn’t stopped conservative Candace Owens from speaking her mind, and her latest remarks about Juneteenth are no different.
She tweeted yesterday (June 17th),
“Juneteenth is soooo lame. Democrats really need to stop trying to repackage segregation. I’ll be celebrating July 4th and July 4th only. I’m American.”
“Every single race has been enslaved at some point in human history. Africans are STILL enslaved today. This is not a holiday. This is more emotional training from Democrats to see ourselves as somehow separate from America. Independence Day is July 4th. The end.”
She also responded to a Twitter user who questioned why Candace Owens isn’t “invited to the BBQ.” She wrote,
“You mean cookout…”
Her message comes as Juneteenth is named a Federal Holiday for the first time.
Before long, social media users, including Azealia Banks, slammed her for her tweets, causing her to trend today (June 18th).
