Katy Perry’s Latest Era Gets Messier With Failed Obama Joke

Katy Perry can't stop putting her foot in her mouth.

Following insensitive comments aimed at Britney Spears earlier this year, Perry offered another cringeworthy soundbite, this time making a joke about former President Barack Obama.

During an impromptu Instagram Live session, Katy read someone's comment saying they miss her black hair. She responded, "Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later." Then she signed off.

As CNN points out, it came across racially insensitive, and the Internet brought pitchforks. Sigh...


Some were outraged.


Others think the media is twisting her words (plausible).
