Earlier this week, we posted as our Distraction Of the Day a selfie of Malia Obama. The oldest of the Obama siblings was shown wearing a Pro Era shirt. Pro Era is a rap collective based out of Brooklyn. Coincidentally, the frontman for the crew, Joey Bada$$ was arrested in Australia the day the selfie hit the net.
Now, the White House wants to know how the crew from Brooklyn got their hands on the picture in the first place.
The photo turned up on Pro Era’s Instagram after, a rep for Joey Bada$$ told Gawker, the group received it from “a mutual friend” of Malia and a Pro Era member.
Fox News points out that Michelle Obama famously keeps her daughters on social media lockdown, with Malia on Facebook only and her little sister Sasha forbidden from using social sites altogether.
