Katy Perry got dragged by the internet this week, after she compared the backlash to her new hairstyle to those who prefer Obama over current President, Donald Trump.
If you follow the pop star on social, you know she recently chopped her signature dark locks and dyed them blonde. During a recent Instagram Live session, a fan commented that they miss her dark hair.
Perry’s response: “Aww, someone says, ‘I miss your old, black hair’. Oh… do you miss Barack Obama as well? Okay, times change. Bye.”

The video made its rounds over the weekend, and ultimately, it drew both anger and disgust from people on Twitter. Comparing her black hair to America’s first black President just didn’t sit right with most people.
Read some of the backlash below:
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.
