Katy Perry is catching fire from social media users for a joke in which she compares backlash to her shorter, blonde hairstyle to those who prefer former President Barack Obama over President Donald Trump.
A controversial video that appears to be of Katy Perry has surfaced, and seems to have been filmed during her press tour in NYC. “Aww someone says ‘I miss your old black hair,'” Perry says into the camera. “Oh really, do you miss Obama as well? Okay, times have changed. Bye.”
She then starts laughing before turning around to see her friends’ reactions. “I should leave now,” Perry says as someone off camera can be heard telling the singer, “You’re cut off!”
Critics quickly deemed Katy’s comments offensive, and as one Twitter user described it, a “tasteless attempt at humor.” We’ll let you do the talking after watching the video.
