American singer Katy Perry drew flak after she uploaded a photo of Goddess Kali on her Instagram page and captioned it, “Current Mood”. In no time, social media users, mostly from India, flooded Pery’s page with reactions and comments. Most of these remarks accused the 32-year-old Grammy award-winner of being “insensitive.”
“U should not show Ur emotions or feelings in the name of goddess or their images bcoz we Hindus worship them images of God are not a toy better remove it (sic),” wrote Satya Prasanna. “@katyperry you think this is a good IMG to show your mood but not any Hindu think like that this is not good idea to represent you mood using some IMG if God not just Hindu but any religious (sic),” wrote another user.
However, some users decided to give Perry benefit of doubt and asked other users not to abuse her.
“In which way is this picture offensive. You Indians please stop getting offended in every petty issues and do something productive (sic),” wrote Koyena Chakrawarti. “Pls stop over reacting on her post..instead see what other bastards(non Indians) r writing ewww, satanic n all. U should try to teach other morons who r being insolent on this pic..Katy dint disrespect our goddess but definitely others (sic),” wrote Isha Gupta.
