After Sasha Obama was spotted in a TikTok dance video with several of her college friends, the teenager was quickly flooded with criticism and abuse.
However, experts have had their say on her potential TikTok career, and it's looking promising...
Now, along with her sister, Sasha Obama was instantly plunged into the spotlight when her dad was elected as POTUS back in 2008.The girls, who were 7-years-old and 10-years-old when they moved into the White House, had their regular lives swapped for ones in the public eye.
It was clearly a huge adjustment for the Obama family...But over the years, the world took joy in watching Obama's daughters grow from young girls into beautiful, intelligent, and independent women.
And, fast-forwarding to today...Malia, who is now twenty-two, and Sasha, who is nineteen, are both studying at college and living their own lives.
The young women no longer spend much time in the public eye, however...And it's clear that they simply want to focus on their studies and live relatively normal lives.
But it seems that Sasha is focused on something else entirely...And that's simply having fun.
Despite the lockdown, Sasha has been spending a lot of time with her college friends...And this is what has landed the young woman in a lot of trouble online recently.
Sasha made an appearance on a TikTok video this week uploaded by user "Pixiestick222."The video shows Sasha and around 7 of her friends dancing and singing along to Popp Hunna’s 2020 track "Adderall (Corvette Corvette)."
Of course, it's more than likely that Sasha is simply within her social bubble in her college dorm...Which is harmless enough, right?
Wrong!Sacha and her friends weren't abiding by social distancing rules, and neither were they wearing face masks, which has triggered a lot of people online.
I wish Sasha Obama wasn't ignoring a pandemic, suggesting Martial Law, and holding COVID aid hostage over her ego. Oh, wait...— John Pavlovitz (@John Pavlovitz)1606920393.0

Following the backlash, the TikTok video was swiftly removed. And, even though Sasha wasn't actually doing anything wrong, we're sure she won't be making an appearance on social media again any time soon.
