The other day while doing an Instagram LIVE, Katy Perry was reading the comments from her fan or followers and one person put that they missed her hair color being black. She obviously thought she was being witty, but her comment came out as something else.
She starts with a mocking tone to the question when she read it out loud saying, “Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair.’ Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. BYE! See you guys later!”
Katy was solo on that joke because after she said it she looked around for validation for her Barack comment from the people in the car with her, but no one was paying attention to her.
She says, “I should leave now” in a dorky tone and someone else around her says, “Ok, you’re cut off.”
Katy kept her phone at a close range to her mouth while she sipped on her drink and ended the LIVE.
Her comment sparked people to take to Twitter by saying things defending Obama and bashing Katy Perry.
J E N A @EclecticOrganic said, “Typical basic races white beckys. Making unfunny racist jokes while drinking starbucks #katyperry
Paris C. @pariscarerra said, “Wow Katy Perry. The reference to former Pres. Obama was offensive & a poor, tasteless attempt at humor. Your privilege is showing.”
Steph @stphfrndz said, “Sometimes when I think that the world is an awful place, I remember that Barack Obama has more Grammys than Katy Perry, and I feel better.”
And another girl, Miranda @MzNeauxla posted, “#katyperry should keep Barack Obama’s name out of her mouth.. She should however get a dentist to work on those bottom teeth….”
What do you think?
