Obama’ Birthday Guests Forced To Delete Instagram Photos After Former President Seen Dancing At “Epic” Party
One of Barack Obama’s party guests said he was forced to delete social media photos he shared of himself at the former president’s 60th birthday bash on Martha’s Vineyard Saturday last weekend.
Hip-Hop artist Trap Beckham and his manager, TJ Chapman, shared images on Instagram of the food, furniture, and themselves smoking cannabis, but they later disappeared due to the event’s photography ban, as per the New York Post
The two men later made posts about having to delete the pictures.
“Had to delete everything due to the rules,” Beckham said. “It was epic for sure. If any videos surface it’s going viral. He danced the whole time. Nobody ever seen Obama like this before.”
Chapman also expressed his disappointment about what happened.
“Epic night last night,” he said in a clip. “I posted some stories of myself. Didn’t think anybody gave a damn, and I guess they did. That’s not cool. That’s not cool.”

Singer Erykah Badu also shared footage of Obama holding a microphone and dancing at his party, but it was taken down a day later.
“Y’all never seen Obama like this in your life,” Chapman said on Instagram later on.

A police officer in Massachusetts called the traffic situation a “sh*t show” on his radio as people from Obama’s party started to drive home at midnight, the Post reported.

According to Chapman, the organizers spent at least $1 million on the party which he labeled “the party of all parties.”
Yesterday we reported on celebrities at an Anti-Masking Rally in Martha’s Vinyard, with Stephen Colbert, Don Cheadle, John Legend, and many more.
We have since learned, this was actually a party to celebrate Barack Obama’s 60th birthday.

The Obamas said they would limit the guest list after backlash for hosting the party amid a nationwide rise in coronavirus cases due to the spread of the delta variant.
A NYT reporter on CNN justifying Obama's huge maskless birthday bash because he only invited "a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd" is about as emblematic of liberal discourse as it gets.
