While some people enjoyed seeing the 19-year-old having fun on the app, many were quick to jump to Obama’s defense after the video began gaining widespread attention, with one user urging people to leave the Obama daughters alone and let them enjoy social media.
“It’s half baked racism to not allow the former first daughters to experience culture & things that normal kids (young adults) do,” one user tweeted.
Sasha Obama is 19 dancing around making Tiktoks and singing them dirty rap songs. Do you know what I was doing at 19? Ecstasy. Like 5 times a week. And smoking maritheejuana… and drinking Puckers and Wild fucking Turkey all the time. She is doing just fine.

Just like many college students, the former first daughter, who is a sophomore at the University of Michigan, is using the app as a form of entertainment during life in quarantine.
“Let the baby enjoy college, and be free – Management,” one user tweeted in the 19-year-old’s defense.
I have way to much homework, to be on social media today. But, before I log off…. #SashaObama internet aunties, uncles and cousin are ready to fight y’all… Let the baby enjoy college, and be free – Management.
