Malia Obama certainly had a great time at Lollapalooza this weekend. This year, the eldest first daughter opted out of the Democratic National Convention to attend the four-day-long music festival in Chicago.
The recent high school grad came under fire Saturday when a fellow attendee took a provocative video of Obama at the Mac Miller performance. She could be seen dancing and lifting her skirt to flash the audience below.
However, the video, which is still making its rounds across the internet, is certainly not the first time one of the Nation’s first daughters has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
From the Bush twins’ infamous under-age drinking scandal to Chelsea Clinton’s head-scratching comment post-9/11, here are five moments first daughters got attention for all the wrong reasons.
1. In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Chelsea Clinton delivered a memorable quote in an article she wrote for Talk Magazine. Clinton was a student at Oxford University in London when she delivered this controversial line, according to a New York Times article:
“Every day I encounter some sort of anti-American feeling,” Clinton wrote. “Over the summer, I thought I would seek out non-Americans as friends, just for diversity’s sake. Now I find that I want to be around Americans – people who I know are thinking about our country as much as I am.”
Although the sentiment was there, Clinton was ridiculed for the remark.
2. One of the most memorable first daughter moments was when the Bush twins, Jenna and Barbara Bush, were cited for underage drinking at a restaurant in Texas in 2001. The girls were 19-years-old and in their freshman year of college. They had attempted to purchase alcohol with false identification, according to People.com.
3. One of the most rebellious former first daughters might have been Ronald Reagan's daughter, Patti Davis. In 1994, Davis posed in a controversial, full-frontal photo for Playboy Magazine. She also posed nude for More in 2011.
4. Julie and Tricia Nixon famously battled it out over a $19 million bequest to the late Richard Nixon’s presidential library. The two sisters had reportedly not spoken in years and were in disagreement about the oversight of the funds, which was a bequest from their father's good friend Bebe Rebozo. Ultimately, according to a 2002 Time article, the sisters moved on and the library was able to access the funds.
5. Malia Obama once again made headlines when the then 17-year-old attended a party at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, while she was on a college tour. Social media photos surfaced showing her standing by a beer pong table complete with Solo cups, which sent the media into a firestorm. Although it was never confirmed whether the first daughter imbibed, the images shed a less-than-appealing light on the eldest first daughter.
