TikTok users have discovered a video of Sasha Obama on the popular video application. The video was found on one of her friend’s pages and the two young women were rapping along to Moneybagg Yo’s “Said Sum” remix featuring DaBaby and City Girls. The clip almost went unnoticed until it was shared on Twitter and Instagram this weekend and quickly went viral.
The clip was uploaded to the account @Cakethatsmg, and the two girls go back and forth flawlessly reciting the lyrics to the City Girls’ verse on the track. Fans were quick to recognize the Obama’s youngest child and took to social media to share their thoughts on her TikTok appearance.
It seems that the videos of the youngest Obama rapping with her friends was reportedly taken down from the account. Fans also spotted other videos that they believe to be of the 19-year-old performing some of the popular TikTok dances with her friends on the social media platform. They seem to have also been taken down since.
Some people enjoyed the video and were supportive of Sasha. Others appreciated that she is a City Girls fan. Others felt the need to come to the teenagers defense after the video began getting shares, saying she has the right to experience things like TikTok the way other young people do. “Let’s be clear- Sasha Obama is 19 yrs old. Full Stop! Now, unless you have something good to say, keep her name out of your dandy mouth!” one Twitter user wrote on Sunday (Oct.25).
Actress Patricia Arquette sent a message asking for children of politicians to be left out of political conversations: “Leave Sasha Obama and Barron Trump alone.”
People have been relying on TikTok for entertainment as they adjust to live in quarantine due to COVID-19. Sasha just began her second year at the University of Michigan and her mom, Michelle Obama, recently opened up about her daughters adjusting to remote learning. “My girls are studying from home,” she said in an Instagram Live conversation with Jennifer Lopez . “We’re itching to get back to campus, but things are just confusing … not quite safe.”
