Can't a girl go to a music festival, twerk, get high and make regrettable decisions in peace? JEEZ. That's what Malia Obama must be asking herself after the latest slew of media interest in her recent visit to Lollapalooza.
As some of you may remember, Malia skipped the Democratic National Convention to let her hair down and party with some friends at Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago (3-6 August).
Not long after, footage emerged of Malia "twerking and grinding" during Bryson Tiller set at the festival, which sparked "outrage" that a young woman dare enjoy herself in public.
I mean, what the hell was she supposed to do? Slap her thigh and do the dosey-doe to "Exchange"? GTFO.
Well it's the same story again, only this time the soon-to-be-Harvard student has been accused of smoking weed. According to people with exceptionally good eyesight, this short clip of Malia catches her puffing on a spliff. The footage is blurry and Malia is only visible for about a second. It's not exactly what we'd call compelling evidence. Judge for yourself below:
But even if it was a joint. What's the problem? Social media rushed to defend the Prez's daughter.

Getting high & dancing with your girlfriends when you're 18 is like a prerequisite to being an adult woman. Leave the gal alone. #MaliaObama— Taylor Williams (@taylormwilliams) August 11, 2016
