Hollywood Rushes To Defend Sasha Obama After Viral TikTok

Sasha Obama is living the high life. When she’s at home with her parents in Washington, Sasha has her own two-room suite in their apartment, complete with a living room, where we like to think she practices her dance moves (via Hello). When at college, the 19-year-old puts them into serious action. You probably saw the TikTok video of Sasha Obama rapping that went viral and provoked a mini Twitter heart attack. Are you ready for season 2? Because it’s out and making waves. 

Earlier this December 2020, another since-deleted TikTok video was copied on to Twitter, to the entire Twitterverse’s alternating fascination, approval, and horror. In it, Sasha Obama, with nails as fierce as Dolly Parton’s, jams out to Popp Hunna’s song “Aderall (Corvette Corvette).” Then, before Twitter could catch its breath, a photo started making the rounds, showing someone who looks a lot like Sasha Obama in a bikini.  

Three observations before we go any further: first, someone taught Sasha Obama to accessorize like a pro. Second, she and her group of friends know how to put their free time to good use. Third, can somebody tell people to stop posting TikTok videos of Sasha Obama for a second so that Twitter can stop hyperventilating?

Here's what Hollywood says about Sasha Obama's latest TikTok video

Newsweek called the uproar over Sasha Obama’s latest video “an onslaught of social media criticism,” picking up on those who questioned her fashion choices, and on those who criticized how many white friends that Obama’s youngest daughter has. (The video showed just three.) 

This time, it’s not the critics who are newsworthy, but Hollywood’s response to them. When Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’s niece, Meena Harris, shouted at Twitter to “Keep Sasha Obama’s name out of your damn mouth.” Meanwhile, comedian Akilah Hughes snarked, “I heard some ugly old white people are mad that Sasha Obama is hot and young?”

Finally, The Good Place actress, Jameela Jamil, (who has made it something of a thing, lately, to come to people’s Twitter defense), closed Sasha Obama’s case for her. “Oh shut up about Sasha Obama,” Jamil fumed, “she’s young, free and harming nobody. Stop acting like it’s the President of The United States doing this. Which even if they did would still hurt nobody. She looks happy and she deserves to grow up expressing herself and having fun.” Amen.
