Malia Obama took a moment to celebrate with friends at the 2017 Lollapallooza in Chicago. The 19-year-old daughter of Barack and Michele Obama witnessed acts such as Chance The Rapper, The Killers and she even took a photo with rapper Anime.

However, Malia’s festival fun went viral after someone captured her dancing on video. On the first video clip, Malia helps a friend by pulling her up from the ground. On the second clip, Malia dances and falls to the ground while pounding her fist on the ground. The video clips come one year after Malia was captured twerking in the crowd at the 2016 Lollapallooza. During that same festival, some claimed that she was photographed smoking marijuana although it was never proven.

Malia continues to catch flack for simply having fun during her youth. Growing up as the child of a public figure can be a burden due to the pressures of remaining on the straight and narrow path. In the early 2000s, President George Bush’s twin daughters were cited in Texas for underage drinking when they were 19. Jenna Bush also got arrested for having a fake ID.

Malia has yet to have any issues with drinking or with law enforcement, but her every move is still watched closely. Most people would hate to be judged by their actions during their college years. It’s a time where teens and young adults should be given the space to make important decisions. Those awkward years are needed to help us learn from mistakes and prepare for future growth.

After the video of Malia dancing on the ground went viral, thousands of people commented on social media:

      @elizabeth_blackman:disqus So are we suppose to stand by and let this child run wild with white girls who are not her friend? If she was with black kids they wouldn’t put her on camera like that. This child needs to be with her own cause them white kids are leading her down the wrong path!!

      why are people always in other people business? some of you are like Triumph, always talking about our last president Obama. Live your life and let her live hers, if she make mistakes, hopefully, she will gain strength frim them! As we all make mistakes, but she’s only havibg a lil fun, The video may not even be her! clean up aroubd your own door, don’t be filled with malice and enviness or jealousy!
      Pick up your sisters and brothers, stop trying to kick them down. The LORD see all things and can do all things! Be careful of what you speak or do, the tongue is a deadly sword that can reverse damage in the worse way!!
