What happens at the party…stays at the party unless you invite Erykah Badu. 

The singer took to social media to apologize to the Obamas after the shared photos and video from Barack Obama’s 60th birthday celebration. 

In her apology, posted on Twitter, Erykah wrote; 

Mr. And Mrs. Obama, Please forgive me 4 being the “terrible guest“ at such a sacred event for your family. I was so inconsiderate, Thank you for all your love. What an example of ‘how NOT‘ to be ……  erica

See her original tweet below.

Barack Obama’s birthday celebration at Martha’s Vineyard was planned months in advance, but because of the delta variant the shindig was scaled back, according to Hannah Hankins, a spokesperson for the couple. 

This outdoor event was planned months ago in accordance with all public health guidelines and with COVID safeguards in place.

Due to the new spread of the Delta variant over the past week, the President and Mrs. Obama have decided to significantly scale back the event to include only family and close friends. 

When Erykah Badu posted video of Barack Obama dancing with H.E.R. and having a blast, the right wing snatched it up to label it a super spreader event. 

What they failed to mention is that everyone in attendance was tested for COVID-19.

Then, there was this type of ignorance…

All of the photos and videos posted by guests have been deleted on social media. 

I’m sure my forever POTUS and FLOTUS won’t hold it against Erykah or their other guests who broke protocol by sharing on social media. 

But, let this be a friendly reminder that everything doesn’t have to be posted.
