19-year-old Malia Obama‘s private life has been under intense scrutiny since her father vacated the White House earlier in the year.

There have been videos of her in concerts, school mixers, even one in a bathroom.

Newssites and blogs have written think-pieces on her lifestyle, talk-shows asking their audiences what they think.

To her defense have come both former and current president’s children Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump.

Clinton, on her Twitter, asked that Obama be left to live her private life. She wrote:

Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.

Trump also echoed the opinion, saying that Obama should be allowed the privacy her peers enjoy. She wrote:

Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.

Rapper Common on his Twitter wrote what has now become a hashtag in support of Malia Obama: “Let Malia Live.”

Other Twitter users have also come to her defense, asking that she be left alone. See the tweets below:

      When you are the child of someone with power or money, you have no friends. That is the hard truth. You only have people that associate with you by virtue of what you can give and what they plan to take. Having said that, I have no empathy for her. You know that your father is constantly a threat to half of America. They are simply looking for one small minute thing to declare one of you a failure. That means that sorry you cannot afford a second of slack. The only slack you get is taking a nap when you are supposed to be in class. What being Obama’s child does to you is that you are constantly under scrutiny. That is all. What you do to yourself is different and more important. Smoking malboro or whatever you were swirling in your small mouth whether you were on tape or not is STUPID. It is a dang carcinogen. even if your father did not see it, WHY TRY it? It is like saying let me drink acid to see if it peels my throat. This is probably why her parents asked her to take a year off before college. Cant she even be worried about what her daddy will feel when he is hit with the news? Imagine my pops seeing me kissing when I am supposed to be in the classroom. Hian. That one na from dia to burial ground because I’d be dead. What she needs to do is cultivate respect for herself by setting high standards. Her dad did it for 8 years. I am sure he wanted side konji but kept his zipper up so that he wont give the enemy the much desired fodder. Its your turn malia. Respect yaself and ya pops for you, not for the republican press. For you girl. If you want to smooch, make it a private affair. You should be studying for As in class. And any boy telling you he is in love with you now now now is looking to tap your konji and tell about it. Simple and short. So keep it secured under secret service lock and key. SMH.

    I feel so bad for her. At 19 I would’ve checked into a retreat if my life was being trailed with millions of microscopes like this. Her circle of friends are the worst. She needs a switch up. Tufia kwa for them.

    Why does everyone keep saying “she has shitty friends” or “She needs Black friends”? Her friends aren’t secretly recording her and selling the images, it’s the media who is relentlessly stalking her. She is a teenager having fun with her friends and recording the moments, like most people do.

      The media followed her to the bathroom?

      Get real. There are no paparazzi at Harvard. These are students taking pictures of her.
