Indians are once again offended and this time American singer Katy Perry is the reason. The popular singer garnered the wrath of Indians and all followers of Hinduism together after she shared a picture of Goddess Kali on her Instagram page. If you are wondering that it should have gained her followers, well it was the caption that caused the trouble. She shared the picture of Hindu God with the caption ‘Current mood’. Katy has in the past put on display her inclination towards Indian culture when she married her ex-husband Russell Brand in Rajasthan in 2010. Her wedding ceremony was a typical Hindu marriage with the saat-pheras and other ceremonial rituals presided by a Hindu priest.
As per reports, Katy has over the years read about India’s gods and goddesses. However, her relation with India did not stop people from trolling her on the social networking site. Hate and angry comments have filled the comment section of the post. A social media user commented saying, “She doesn’t even know the story behind this picture, shame on indians who are supporting this disgust katy perry did (sic)” to “Remove this pick right now u mad (sic)”. People commented saying that she should have disrespected a goddesses and hurt religious sentiments of people. Katy Perry suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Academy Awards after party and Twitterati spotted it!
Here is what she posted on Instagram:
While some warned Katy saying that she may lose followers on social media for the post. An Instagram user commented saying, “That’s the Indian goddess ……be careful when you use things like these because people might start disliking you”. We couldn’t stop but compare the outrage to the ongoing tussle of social media users with Snapchat and Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam. All the incidents show how as Indians we get offended with a person’s viewpoint or opinion. What do you think about this social outrage? Do let us know about it in the comments section below.
