A picture posted to the Pro Era Instagram account may now be at the center of an investigation led by the White House. In the photo, which was uploaded earlier this week, a person who appears to be Malia Obama is pictured wearing a Pro Era t-shirt.
The following caption was added to the photo:
“Malia Obama rocking that classic Pro Era tee! | Make sure you get your official Pro Era gear from theproera.com!”
According to Gawker, a rep for Joey Bada$$ informed them that the picture was obtained through “a mutual friend” of Malia Obama and a Pro Era member.
Fox News reports that both Malia and Sasha Obama are forbidden from using most social media sites. Malia Obama reportedly has only a Facebook profile while Sasha Obama does not have any social media accounts.
Last year, Obama’s eldest daughter caught many by surprise when she was pictured at the Lollapalooza music festival during Chance The Rapper’s performance.

UPDATE: Joey Bada$$ tweeted an apology regarding posting the selfie of Malia Obama wearing a Pro Era shirt, according to XXL.
“Shoutout to Malia for supporting the ERA. It’s very clear that we meant no harm by posting the pic. Peace to the White House! #B4DAMONEY,” the rapper wrote on twitter today (January 9) before removing it, XXL says.
