18-year-old Malia Obama Captured Smoking Weed in Public




Yesterday Radar Online exclusively dropped the story that 18-year-old Malia Obama was captured on video smoking marijuana at a popular music festival in the U.S., Lollapalooza.

The first-born daughter of the United States President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle got admission into Harvard University but is taking a ‘gap year’ before she resumes college in 2017.

The internet broke when the video came out – people have had different reactions ranging from defending her (see some reactions below) to saying people should focus on the upcoming elections and Donald Trump (this includes Chris Brown) to trolling the girl who released the video, putting emojis of rats and corn (implying she’s corny and a rat for snitching), to criticising Malia for setting a bad example.

Watch the video below

Chris Brown left a comment defending the ‘first daughter’ on The Shade Room Instagram – Chris Brown defends Malia Obama for weed

Many also defended her, including media publications –

There has been no official word from the White House on the matter yet.

    If she smoked anything at all-cigarettes, weed, wrapped paper, it is not cool. This is not why you take a year off from college. They all have long term impacts on the body. I am UNIMPRESSED. When you are under the spotlight, you lose certain privileges….like the privilege to do the f**k what you want to do. that is out the window. Sorry. Oh, and that daddy smoked weed does not make it okay for Mahlia to smoke weed. Its like saying because someone’s father stole and still became a revered president of an African nation, it is okay for the child to steal. Or that because there is one prostitute that has been having sex without condoms and has no HIV, all other prostitutes should do the same because we believe they will be okay. Akuko. Heavily flawed logic

      Lool Ma’am, think you should calm down. Like seriously exhale. She’s at a festival, doesn’t mean she’s spending the entire gap year smoking. I don’t know if it’s a Nigerian thing where they judge people by these little things, but I’m at an Ivy League university and so many people smoke. In fact 10% abuse drugs. They also drink, party, and then wear their sweaters to class in the morning and intern at Wall Street on holidays. Someone can smoke, drink, have 50 piercings and green locs, and still be a decent person with good grades

    It not easy to spend all your teenage years under scrutiny because your father is the president. There is nothing abnormal here,just a teenager being a teenager.

      @ Jess thanks U! She ain’t the first to go buck wild. Prince Harry was buck wild, George Bush Twin girls did worse than what Malia is doing. So abeg she will still turn out VERY RIGHT.. #nobitchassness#..

    And his daughter will gladly smoke it but yet they won’t legalise it. If it were an average individual, they would have gotten in trouble. But considering that she is the president’s daughter, she is most likely going to get excused and people are going to come up with excuses like, “Well, she’s being a teenager and seriously, what teenager hasn’t smoked Mary Jane?”(and that argument doesn’t apply to all American teenagers).

    As much as I don’t support weed consumption, whoever posted this video online is wicked. There was no reason to post this online.

    It wasn’t smart of her to do this in public with cameras around. I can imagine the pressure she’s under with Secret Service guys following her everywhere, but yeah…. it wasn’t smart.

    See all them weed smokers supporting her… Continue peeps…! Keep smoking and please don’t forget to buy weeds for your children and grandchildren when you have them… In fact by the time your children hit 13 let packs of weed be one of the presents you will give them on their bday… Then when they turn 18 add cocaine and heroine to it… Good luck .

      Weed does not have plural – 1. And 2 – it doesn’t come in “packs” like cigarette. #justsaying

    • Chekwube

      August 12, 2016 at 12:34 pm

      …and pray what are you on about? Run along and go smoke your ‘packs’ of weed mister/ miss fashionista.

    She’s not the first person to take weed, she’s also not the 1st person to get into Harvard. If the latter made headlines, you see why this should too. It’s called being in the spotlight

    Funny as hell watching people having crazy opinions that do not and will not have any sort of impact on ANYTHING whatsoever. If you’re here making a negative comment on someone’s lifestyle, you must really hate your life. Let the poor girl live. Mind your business. Get a hobby. Go back to english class. Improve your grammar. Get laid and calm the f*** down. It’s weed. Relax. Lmao.

    Lol, Nigerians though, y’all don’t just have the chill button sha…. She smoked weed, errr, okay, I’m sure she’ll be just fine! Why do Nigerian’s feel cause someone smokes they are automatically the devil’s spawn?! Is it a bad habit? Well Probably but then again everyone has bad habits. Does it feel amazing being high on your couch, munching on junk and watching cartoons and not thinking about the people that don’t like to keep calm and mind their business? Hell yes!!! It’s weed, not cocaine, not heroine, not crack, not meth, just plain old weed….
