Katy in Hindu back­lash

Irish Daily Mail - - The Red Carpet -

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.
