Katy Perry is one of those artists who carefully exercise her basic freedom, i.e., the right to maintain her stance on any dispute. Roe v. Wade’s most recent controversy has caused a stir in the nation, but Katy Perry chose to keep her opinions. Recently, it backfired on her as Katy Perry was criticized for her July 4th abortion tweet due to support from Caruso.
This holiday weekend, Katy Perry sent a message to convey her anger about the Roe v. Wade ruling, but Twitter’s response was limited to calling out what it saw as hypocrisy.
Following the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse the landmark decision, which essentially outlawed abortions almost instantly in numerous states across the nation, the singer tweeted on Monday about the 4th of July.
The singer sarcastically tweeted a reference to her song of the same name from 2010. Katy is currently being dragged to no end rather than being praised for her pro-choice position here, as many celebrities have been lately. And it’s all because she openly backed Rick Caruso for mayor of Los Angeles.
“Baby you’re a firework’ is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh.”
KP was one of several famous people to support the wealthy businessman and real estate developer who is running for mayor. Though he came up short in the June election, he still has a chance to win it in a runoff against Rep. Karen Bass in November.
The issue is that Caruso, who is running as a Democrat, has historically been seen as being ambivalent about his views on abortion, at least based on old interviews from the 2000s. Rick, who has recently been under fire, was a Republican. He has given money to many GOP candidates, including those who claim to be anti-abortion.
Rick now describes himself as a supporter of women’s rights and declares that he is pro-choice. Twitter is not buying it, and they are advising Katy to sit this one out despite her very public support for him, which is unfortunate for him and for her, it appears.
Perry wasn’t the only celebrity to support Caruso, though; Kim Kardashian did so in the weeks leading up to last month’s election. However, it seems Kardashian has since avoided Twitter to express her regret over the abortion controversy.
Instead, she expressed her discontent through Instagram Stories, where strangers can’t quickly comment or confront her as they did on the previous bird app. In retrospect, good move. What’s your take on it? For further updates, stay tuned to Thirsty.
