Candace Owens sparked controversy on Twitter.com when she dismissed Juneteenth as "lame."

The conservative activist slammed the new federal holiday that was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, June 16.

The holiday takes effect immediately, and all government offices were closed on Friday, June 18, to observe the new holiday.

However, Candace is among Black celebrities, such as comedian D.L. Hughley, who question the speed with which Juneteenth became a holiday.

Most Black people outside of Texas had never heard of Juneteenth until President Donald Trump scheduled a rally on that same day last year.

Trump later changed the date of his rally, saying, "I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous."

Candace took to Twitter to express her disapproval of the new federal holiday.

"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."

"This is your daily reminder that immigrants from Africa as well as the Carribean are among the most successful ethnic groups in the country.

America doesn't discriminate against people based on skin. Black Americans are just focused on meaninglessness like 'Juneteenth'."
