Joey Bada$$ responds to the Malia Obama photo controversy


The shockwaves of Malia Obama’s photo sporting a Pro Era t-shirt continue to reverberate across social media and now the White House.

According to Gawker, an investigation is under way on how the picture of Malia found it’s way to the Internet. First Lady Michelle Obama is notoriously protective of her daughters’ online presence. Sources say 16-year old Malia is only allowed to use Facebook, while 13-year old Sasha is not allowed to use any social media sites.

A rep for Joey Bada$$ says the picture, which ended up on Pro Era’s Instagram page, was given to the crew by a mutual friend of Malia’s and a unnamed group member.

Meanwhile, Joey Bada$$ himself finally weighed in on the matter with the following tweet:
