The Arizona Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett isn’t laughing now after receiving backlash for posting a photo of 16-year-old Malia Obama’s backside on Instagram with disturbing comments. The photo was originally posted by a user with the handle “dreday_4” with the caption, “When is her prom?”
The 33-year-old Dockett apparently thought this was funny and left an “Omgggg” comment on that photo before he decided to post the photo on his own Instagram account. On his repost, he left the original caption and added, “Lmfaooo,” which stands for “laughing my f*****g a** off.” This drew swift criticism, and the NFLer deleted the photo.
This is the second time in just one week that the underage Malia Obama has been victim of a disturbing social media post. Last week, Elizabeth Lauten, a communications director for a Republican house member, took to Facebook to blast Malia and her younger sister Sasha for not “showing a little class” at the turkey pardoning ceremony. Lauten was widely criticized for her Facebook rant and apologized before she resigned on Monday.
