Katy Perry is facing internet backlash this week. A video of Perry joking about people missing her black hair began circulating social media on Sunday (April 30), and no one thinks is funny.
While on Instagram Live Perry responded to a fan’s comment about her hair. “Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,’ Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change, bye. See you guys later.”

After, she giggled and looked back to the other people in the car. “I should go now,” she said, shortly after she ended the stream. Reportedly, Perry mentioned the former president because the fan’s username was, “MsBarackObamaAsWell.”
Social media wasn’t trying to hear that and went on full attack mode. See some of the tweets below.
Katy Perry really fucking tried it with that white ass joke. What does Barack Obama have to do with your dry ass white hair?
