Remember when you were in college and the paparazzi was following you around while you did normal college-aged things?
Of course you don’t, because that never happened. So why should Malia Obama have to feel the presence of cameras when she literally never asked to be a celebrity.
“But, but. Her dad was president.” Oh, that’s right, and she wasn’t right? Yeah. So there.
A few news outlets though decided that Barack Obama’s oldest daughter walking with her new boyfriend around New York City was worthwhile.

Luckily, some people on social media, instead of criticizing her or the boyfriend for no reason, decided to take aim at the media outlets with a collective "WHO CARES."

Are you serious?! Why the hell is this news?! Why do you think it’s acceptable to undermine her provacy like that?!— Kino der Doppelgänger (@LiteratoARatos) January 21, 2018
Harvey, leave her the F alone. She’s only known because of her father...give her her deserved privacy— Ted Donnelly (@irishted) January 21, 2018

Let the girl live her life god damn 😂— Dillon (@chill__dill) January 21, 2018
There were more, but you get the idea.
It is true. Malia is technically a celebrity. But don't you think it's best for her that we leave her along, at least during her time at Harvard? Her coursework presumably adds enough pressure to her life as it is.
