Whoopi Goldberg Supports Malia Obama’s Stage Name at Sundance

Award-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg defended Malia Obama’s decision to use her middle name, Malia Ann, in the film industry. Malia, the 25-year-old daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama, dropped her last name for her Sundance Film Festival debut.

Goldberg, who also chose a stage name, supported Malia on “The View,” questioning critics’ concerns about her name choice. She emphasized everyone’s right to their chosen identity, mirroring her own choice to be known as Whoopi Goldberg.

“The View” discussed the challenges faced by famous individuals’ children, often tagged as “nepo babies,” and the scrutiny in forging their paths. Co-hosts supported Malia, highlighting the dilemma she faces with her famous last name.

Malia’s directorial debut, “The Heart,” explores a man’s unique challenge following his mother’s will. Before directing, she was a staff writer on “Swarm,” where Donald Glover commended her work, unaffected by her family’s fame.

Goldberg’s stance and the support from “The View” co-hosts underscore the importance of personal identity and autonomy for public figures, advocating for Malia Obama’s right to professional and personal choices without facing undue criticism.
