During an Instagram Live exchange in which a fan commented on the singer turning her black hair blonde, the “Bon Appetit” performer replied: “Oh someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair.’ Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See your guys later.”
Harsh reaction to Perry somehow connecting her formerly dark locks to the former commander-in-chief continued on Twitter into late Sunday. Some also came to Perry’s defense, saying she had done nothing offensive.
People noted Perry’s support for Obama previously, but her hair comment had a part of the internet tressing-out.
HuffPost reached out early Monday to a Perry rep for comment.
