Pop singer Katy Perry is once against facing fierce backlash online after jokingly comparing her “old black hair” to former President Barack Obama.
“Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,’” the “Firework” singer said in an Instagram video over the weekend. “Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, Okay. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.”
Perry has since deleted the Instagram video.
The joke, however, did not go over well, with many social media users taking offense to Perry likening her old hairstyle to the first black U.S. president.

Far worse things have been said about President Trump and no one blinks. Far more racist things are said about white people by black people and no one blinks. We have gotten too sensitive as a society.
