Katy Perry is facing a bit of backlash over a joke she made referencing Barack Obama.
If you’ve seen Katy lately, then you’ve noticed that she cut her signature black hair and is now rocking super-duper short hairstyle.
Her fans have been very vocal about her look — complaining they want ‘old’ Katy back.
While out and about doing promo for her new single, “Bon Appétit,” Katy addressed the hair criticism by comparing the backlash to her new hairstyle to those who prefer former President Barack Obama over Donald Trump.
“Aww, someone says, ‘I miss your old, black hair’,” Katy said, during an Instagram Live session. “Oh, do you miss Barack Obama as well? Okay, times change. Bye.”
It’s unclear if she was making a joke about having to ‘deal’ or if her mind drew a correlation between her ‘black’ hair and our ‘Black’ president.
Either way, Katy…no.
I'm sure we can all do without @katyperry right ??? #Loser pic.twitter.com/r9bQcuaCBi
