Malia Obama has broken her silence on allegations she smoked marijuana with two words: “SMOKING KILLS.”
The first daughter turned up at the annual Made in America Festival in Philadelphia sporting a white graphic T-shirt with the words emblazoned on the front. She paired the shirt with a baseball cap for Harvard, soon to be her university.
The cleverly put-together outfit was taken as a smart jab at people who condemned her for smoking what many assumed was marijuana at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in early August. Radar Online posted video, calling it a “new low” for “wild child Malia Obama.”
Despite the criticism, many came to the 18-year-old’s defense, pretty much saying let the girl live.
The Twitterverse had a blast praising Obama for achieving the ultimate level of petty with some even crowning it the best clap back — a return of a diss — imaginable.
One user even wrote “wow, I aspire to be this petty,” while another said “Malia Obama is the real MVP.”
