Erykah Badu’s unauthorized social media posts showed the Obamas dancing mask-free among the hundreds of attendees.
Erykah Badu is singing the blues after unintentionally sparking Obama drama on social media.
The soulful Grammy Award winner took to Twitter seeking the former first family’s forgiveness for being a “terrible guest” by posting pictures and videos of Barack Obama’s massive 60th birthday party in Martha’s Vineyard on Aug. 7.
“Mr. And Mrs. Obama, Please forgive me 4 being the ‘terrible guest’ at such a sacred event for your family,” Badu, 50, real name Erica Wright, tweeted Thursday.
The “Window Seat” singer’s unauthorized social media posts showed the birthday boy with wife Michelle, 57, dancing mask-free among the hundreds of attendees at the luau-themed function.
The images have since been removed from Badu’s social platforms.
Prior to the star-studded soiree — with Hollywood heavyweights Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Tom Hanks, H.E.R., Questlove, John Legend and Alicia Keys on the guest list — Obama reportedly “scaled back” his guest list from nearly 500 to 200 due to the rapid transmission of the Delta variant of the coronavirus.
But Badu’s snaps of the unmasked politician and his not-distanced partygoers launched a deluge of disparaging comments from “outraged” detractors who, under the hashtag #ObamaVariant, bashed the 44th commander-in-chief for hosting the jam-packed jamboree.
And for accidentally stirring the pot, Badu is sorry.
“I was so inconsiderate,” the “Tyrone” musician continued in her Twitter mea culpa.
“Thank you for all your love. What an example of ‘how NOT’ to be,” she added, sealing the apology with “erica.”
