Even though Malia Obama is the president’s daughter, she’s still a teenager and she just wants to have fun! The 17-year-old was criticized for reportedly playing beer pong and now her fans are defending her for her actions! Read their tweets here!
There’s no harm in having a little fun! Some people are coming to Malia Obama‘s, 17, defense after she was reportedly caught engaging in a game of beer pong when she went on a college visit to Brown University on Oct. 14. While many may frown upon that action since she’s underaged, others are standing by Malia’s side!

Being the daughter to one of the most powerful men in the world can be unnerving. The 17-year-old could’ve just been in the wrong place at the wrong time! Malia was snapped standing next to a beer pong table, causing people to assume that the young girl was engaging in the drinking game. While it has yet to be confirmed or denied that Malia was playing and/or drinking alcohol, many have come to the eldest Obama’s side.
She’s “just like the rest of us,” some are saying in Malia’s defense! Just read what some of these people had to say about Malia’s fun time at Brown University. See their tweets below.
Good for Malia Obama playing beer pong… She's a normal teenager, just like the rest of us were playing beer pong at that age

Although Malia is a teenager who probably just wants to have fun, she is younger than the legal drinking age. But, that’s not to say that she’s the first underaged person to drink alcohol! Jenna and Barbara Bush were only 19 when they were cited in Texas for underaged drinking in 2001 at a popular Tex-Mex restaurant in Austin. Needless to say, Malia being caught next to a beer pong table is very mild in comparison to what happened to former President George W. Bush‘s twin daughters.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Malia should be criticized for hanging out near a beer pong table and possibly playing along?
