Uh, oh. Sounds like there is trouble in paradise after “Hillary Clinton worshipping” Katy Perry made a joke about Obama and the liberals are going bananas. They are hailing her as racist. Yep. Her own party has turned against her! Oops.
It’s quite magical, really. Make some extra popcorn, you’ll need it.
The thirty-two year old has charted the top hits before, but she has been gone for a while. I can’t say we were really complaining about that though? Anyway, she cracked a joke about ol’ Barry Obummer after someone joked about her new, short blonde hair. Her response? A video, in which she stated, “Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair.’ Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, Okay. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.”
See for yourself:

Okay so, part of me almost feels bad for her because I don’t completely think that the way her joke came off was meant to be racist. I think she was simply comparing her change of hair to a change of president. I think that her previous hair color and our previous president just both happened to be black. That’s giving her the benefit of the doubt.
Regardless of her joke was meant to come across, it came across as her making a racist joke…..and Twitter was not happy, let me tell you. Here’s a few of the responses to good ol’ Katy:
Wow Katy Perry. The reference to former Pres. Obama was offensive & a poor, tasteless attempt at humor. Your privilege is showing.

Katy Perry really fucking tried it with that white ass joke. What does Barack Obama have to do with your dry ass white hair?

Yikes. Everybody needs something to be upset about though, I guess….right? I mean this is 2017. Everyone is always offended. It just wouldn’t be right if we had a peaceful day!
