LOOK: KATY PERRY Compares Herself To BARACK OBAMA And Fans Are Not Thrilled
Katy Perry faced backlash after seemingly poking fun at Barack Obama's end of service as United States president.
Now sporting a blonde buzzcut, the popstar has been getting a lot messages about how fans miss her old hair. And in response to the I-miss-your-old-black-hair comments, the "The Chained To The Rhythm" singer answered with what seems like a shady comparison between her hair and Barack, saying, "Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later!"
The internet was not pleased with her snarky reply.
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.— Steph (@stphfrndz) April 30, 2017
Katy Perry really fucking tried it with that white ass joke. What does Barack Obama have to do with your dry ass white hair?— ?ecca???? (@MJStarLover) April 30, 2017
Wow Katy Perry. The reference to former Pres. Obama was offensive & a poor, tasteless attempt at humor. Your privilege is showing.— Paris C. (@pariscarerra) April 30, 2017

Some fans though came to her defense.
Katy Perry meant she wants Obama back and can't have him same way ppl want her black hair and won't get it back ... Christ ppl lol— Wally Szczerbiak (@findingwhitney) April 30, 2017
I don't get why everyone is so upset with Katy Perry... her joke wasn't racist at all...her hair used to be black and Obama USED to be prez.— When. She. Styles. (@way2jazzii) April 30, 2017
It's truly unclear what the popstar meant but let's hope she'll respond to this issue as soon as possible.
