Brown University’s campus publication is on damage control, desperately trying to erase the image of the first daughter playing beer pong.
The Brown Daily Herald editors apologized to Malia Obama on behalf of students who posted photos of the 17-year-old at a party while visiting the campus last week. Snapchats were accompanied by a few tweets claiming that she was “taking shots and playing beer pong.”
The editorial, “Sorry, Malia Obama,” said, in part:
Some of the tweets include photographs of her that were clearly taken when she was not looking. Many of them mention her presence at a party, where she was seen taking shots and playing beer pong.
The motivation to take these pictures was obvious: being at a party with the president’s daughter was an exciting, unexpected moment that many of us wanted to share with our friends.
The article had a heavy dose of chastisement for the students who were clearly not treating the president’s daughter special enough.
It is a shame that Malia was unable to visit Brown and enjoy herself at a party without several news headlines coming out about it the next day. While it is understandable that so many students were excited about her visit, it is likely that few of us would enjoy having strangers take pictures of us while we were unaware and post them on the Internet.
Surely “President Selfie” understands their compulsion.
