Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton Chide Tabloids for Hounding Malia Obama over Leaked Video

First daughter Ivanka Trump and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton have expressed their disgust on social media against tabloids and conservative media, urging them not to encroach upon the 19-year-old former first daughter and a first-year Harvard student, Malia Obama’s, personal space and privacy.

Ivanka may not have spent as much time at the White House as Malia but she does understand the kind of media glare first daughters are always under. Her tweet defending Malia against the tabloids is testament to that fact. “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,” she wrote.

Not too long after the Republican first daughter’s social media comment, came the former Democrat first daughter’s tweet, also chiding the media for making Malia their “clickbait.”

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

Conservative site The Daily Caller and certain other tabloids and media outlets uploaded a 30-second-long leaked video in which Malia appears to be making smoke rings.

Another TMZ-published video and stills showed the 19-year-old kissing a young man – a Harvard student, as reported by some tabloids – at the annual Harvard-Yale football game.

“The makeout sesh is no big deal — just a freshman doing what freshmen do — but the fact Malia lit up a cigarette might not sit well with mom and pop. Remember, Michelle famously disapproved of Barack smoking,” wrote TMZ.

And here are the stills.




It’s not the first time Chelsea Clinton has spoken out in defense of a first family member. In January this year, she had spoken out against the tabloids for publishing a piece ridiculing Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron Trump. “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid,” she wrote on Facebook and Twitter.

This isn’t the first instance of Malia’s privacy being violated on social media. Back in October of 2015, online photos of her playing beer pong at a Brown University party, which was part of a college tour, were leaked online by the university’s students who apologized to her later.

Here’s how people reacted to the gossip on social media – the tweets were largely jibes directed at the media with some serious criticisms as well.
