Katy Perry under fire for controversial Barack Obama joke

Katy Perry is in hot water.

The "Firework" singer raised eyebrows during an Instagram Live session over the weekend when she compared dying her black hair blonde to former President Barack Obama being replaced by Donald Trump.

"Oh, someone says, 'I miss your old black hair,'" she said before sarcastically replying, "Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, Okay. Times change. Bye! See you guys later."

She then started laughing, looking at her friends around her for approval:

"I should leave now," she said. One of her pals replied , "Okay, you're cut off," as Perry ended the livestream.

Social media immediately tore Katy apart for her remarks.

"Wow Katy Perry. The reference to former Pres. Obama was offensive & a poor, tasteless attempt at humor. Your privilege is showing," one user wrote on Twitter.

"Sometimes when I think that the world is an awful place, I remember that Barack Obama has more Grammys than Katy Perry, and I feel better," someone else posted.

Though unknown to most, Obama has two Grammys for his audiobooks "Dreams For My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope." Meanwhile, Katy has been nominated for 13 Grammys, but has yet to win a single one.

This isn't the first time the brunette beauty has been criticized in the past couple of months for her controversial remarks. During the 2017 GRAMMYs, Perry came under fire for remarks alluding to Britney Spears' infamous head-shaving incident in 2007.

While talking to Ryan Seacrest on the E! Red Carpet, Perry revealed that she had been "taking care of [her] mental health" during her almost four-year break from music.

"I haven't shaved my head yet!" Perry exclaimed in a clear reference to the incident, which was perhaps Britney's lowest point as she struggled with alleged mental health issues.
