(Newser) – Malia Obama went to Lollapalooza this weekend—continuing what Jezebel refers to as "the best summer any 16-year-old has ever had" (because hey, pretty awesome internship)—and, as has never in the history of humankind at music festivals happened, someone got accidentally jostled, and it got tweeted:

  • "I got (accidentally) kicked by Malia Obama today at Lollapalooza. No lie. Malia. Obama. It was awesome. #lollapalooza"
Then the Daily Caller got involved with a story headlined "Malia Obama Straight Up Kicked A Girl at Lollapalooza":
  • "Malia Obama kicked a (presumably) American citizen at Lollapalooza, and not only did the Secret Service fail to act, the kicked victim was happy about it. Bridget Truskey was minding her own business at the music festival, when the president’s daughter kicked her. 'It was awesome,' Truskey tweeted, apparently dangerously unable to see past the stars in her eyes."
