White House Makes Photo Agency Delete Pics Of Malia Obama- Good parenting or abuse of power?

No thank you!

 

So I saw this story on TMZ and I thought it was a good discussion point.  Is it not the job of parents to protect their children by any means necessary?  In my personal opinion I don’t think it’s an abuse of power. I think it’s being a good parent.  After all when did photographing people’s children become the “right” of the paparazzi?

“Malia Obama went to a famous L.A. restaurant Monday night — a restaurant regularly frequented by celebs and paparazzi — and when the White House found out a photog took her pic, they went into DEFCON 1 to KILL the photos.

The 16-year-old went to Gjelina in Venice, CA with some friends.  The photog got the pic as Malia walked out and then sent it to the AKM-GSI agency to sell.  The agency posted the pic on its website for media outlets to purchase, but several hours later The First Lady’s Office called AKM-GSI and asked them to please take the pics off the website and delete them from their files.

We’re told Michelle Obama‘s people told the agency they had promises from various media outlets not to photograph the 2 girls when they were not in the presence of their father.  

AKM-GSI then agreed, sending an email to the media with the subject, “URGENT SET KILL NOTICE.”

The text reads, “Please delete the set of Malia Obama from your archive.  The set was sent around earlier today.  We cannot distribute this set.” 

Now here’s what’s interesting.  Malia has been in L.A. over the last few weeks, doing an internship on Halle Berry’s TV show for part of the time.  Then she showed up at a famous restaurant — Secret Service in tow — with photogs all over the place.  

So is this a case of the President and First Lady taking precautionary action, or is this a concerned famous mom and dad flexing their muscles?”

When TMZ posted the story, they asked if this was a case of Mrs. Obama and the White House abusing their power when Malia made a decision to one intern in L.A. and then go to a very popular restaurant. There’s a poll and a majority of the people believe it’s an abuse. But if you ask me, this is just what parents do. Parents are supposed to do everything in their power to protect their children. And as it stands now, the more power you have the better you’re able to protect your children. That’s the way of the world. Plus, if the Obamas were really to abuse their power, I can imagine a few things far worse than asking a photo agency to delete a photo of their teenage daughter.

What do you think, were the Obamas wrong to flex this much muscle or is this just yet another example of people being mad at everything the first family does, whether it’s right or wrong?

We reported a few weeks ago that First Daughter Malia Obama was interning on the set of Halle Berry’s new movie Extant and since she’s been spending so much time in L.A., it’s not all too surprising the the paparazzi is on the prowl.

Monday night Malia and a few of her friends were spotted at Gjelina, famous restaurant in Venice, California. It’s often frequented by celebrities so the paparazzi were on site, snapping pictures of the 16 year old. A photographer captured a picture of Malia as she walked out of the restaurant and he sold the image to AKM-GSI for them to distribute to other sites. The agency posted the picture on their website for other media outlets to purchase. But within a few hours the First Lady’s office called AKM-GSI and asked them to please remove the photo.

According to TMZ, Mrs. Obama’s staff told the agency that they’d secured promises from several media outlets not to photograph either Sasha or Malia when they weren’t with their father, President Obama.

AKM-GSI agreed and then sent an e-mail to other media outlets issuing a “URGENT SET KILL NOTICE.”

It read: “Please delete the set of Malia Obama from your archive. The set was sent around earlier today. We cannot distribute this set.”
