    While the FLOTUS' tweet attracted the attention of quite a few of her critics, they themselves got criticized by some netizens.

    First Lady of the United States Melania Trump has recently found herself a target of mockery and criticism online after making a tweet related to Juneteenth, a holiday that celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the US.

    In her 19 June video tweet, Melania proceeded to "share the story "All Different Now" by Angela Johnson, which sheds light on the first Juneteenth through the eyes of a young girl".

    ​Many social media users, however, proceeded to bash her in response, some of them accusing her of previously supporting a conspiracy theory that questioned Barack Obama's citizenship.

    ​A number of people also took the opportunity to slam Melania over her appearance.

    Yet there were also those who directed their criticism at Melania's critics instead.
