Katy in Hindu backlash
SHE recently spoke out about her strict Christian upbringing, but now Katy Perry has come under fire for sharing a picture of a Hindu goddess, left, on Instagram, which she captioned ‘current mood’.
Social media users took to the site to criticise the post, describing it as ‘offensive’. The image shows the Hindu goddess Kali Maa, or the Divine Mother.
One user, posting under the name @chhibber_sahb, wrote: ‘This is a shameful and offensive act. You can’t compare yourself with The Great Goddess Kali Maa.’
However, some fans took to Instagram to defend Katy. One wrote: ‘Well I’m an Indian and Hindu also. This is not offensive at all. Some people get offended so easily.’
Despite saying she didn’t belong to a particular faith, Katy, 32, got married to Russell Brand in a lavish Hindu ceremony in India back in 2010. The couple divorced in 2012.
