Zaya nabbed the interview of a lifetime when First Lady Michelle Obama joined her for a virtual Q&A session Thursday (March 4).
On hand to discuss advice for teen readers of her New York Times’ best-seller, ‘Becoming,’ Obama praised the young interviewer for living in her truth so early in life.
“I am just so proud of you, you know, being just an amazing role model and embracing your truth,” Michelle said before later continuing, “At your age, or in the teenage years and probably through your 20s, you’re gonna be experimenting with so many versions of yourself, right? “All young people are trying on different versions, different voices, they’re learning more about their intellect, they’re learning about what they love, what they’re good at, what they like. This is the period of exploration.”
As the interview made its rounds, Boog took to Instagram to make a statement that’s landed him in hot water. The 35-year-old said:
“This is not cool. Very demonic. Using this child for their new agenda. Take away the man, make the women the new man. And no more reproduction. This child shouldn’t be the front runner of the movement.”
That’s not all he said. See his full response below:
