Sheesh! Malia Obama has been getting some major hate for appearing to allegedly smoke pot at Lollapalooza on July 31. Now, fans are taking a stand and fiercely defending the first daughter after she was shamed for her behavior. We’ve got the scoop, here!
People went into a frenzy when President Obama‘s daughter, Malia Obama, 18, appeared to be puffing on a “joint” during Bryson Tiller‘s set at Lollapalooza. The social media trolling quickly ensued after the video surfaced, leading many to call her a “wild child” for allegedly lighting up at the Chicago-based music festival. The POTUS is also being blamed, since he admitted to trying marijuana in his youth. Despite the haters, a slew of fans quickly came out of the woodworks to stand up for the first daughter. One commented, “So Malia is getting slammed for doing things EVERYONE has done, Idgaf who her dad is, it’s normal teenager behavior.” Here are a few more:

Criticizers: Maybe your own dumbass kid never smoked pot, but I'd bet they're not going to Harvard any time soon.#maliaobama

Festival footage showed Malia and her gal pals twerking on stage and getting down to Mac Miller, 24, as well as to 28-year-old Cashmere Cat‘s jams. Malia was definitely having a blast, clad in a cute crop top and shorts. The video surfaced only one day after the Democratic National Convention finished on July 28 — she skipped the political event to enjoy the 4-day festival.
Despite this recent controversy, Malia is still on the path to success. She recently graduated from the exclusive Sidwell Friends School in D.C. and is heading to Harvard in 2017 after taking a gap year. In addition to her future attendance at an Ivy League school, she’s also landed a summer internship at the U.S. Embassy in Spain! As if that’s not enough, she’s previously interned on the set of the HBO series, Girls, and Halle Berry’s, 49, CBS show, Extant. Keep your head up, Malia!
