Leaked video of Malia Obama dancing prompts Twitter users to defend her

Published: Updated:

Former First Daughter Malia Obama, 19, was caught on video dancing wildly as a Las Vegas rock band played its hits during the headlining set on Friday night at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, according to entertainment website TMZ.

Malia can be seen on camera rolling around on the grass at one point, rocking her head to the music and enjoying herself while out in public with her friends.

Footage posted by TMZ showed Malia and her friend taking turns to writhe and roll on the grass, thrashing around before head banging and pounding the ground during a guitar riff.

Malia and her friends reportedly spent most of their time backstage during The Killers set, before going to the grassy area to dance.

Some Twitter users have been quick to defend the teenager for letting loose and having fun with her friends.

Others called for people to stop secretly filming the former First Daughter in order to "profit off of her."
