Katy Perry has been repeatedly accused of cultural appropriation and now she’s at it again. Cenk Uygur, Hannah Cranston, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss if her Instagram post was cultural appropriation. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go

“Katy Perry has invited the wrath of Indians. Much like Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel did recently. Albeit, for a different reason.

The American singer-songwriter is being pilloried for posting a picture of an Indian goddess on Instagram, with the caption 'current mood.'

The post has got over 250,000 likes and 11,000 comments, most of them unsavory sermons from Indians, who reckon that the significance of goddess Kali (regarded as a divine protector by Hindus) is lost on her.

One user wrote: "Please Katy !! Don’t use such type of Indian God’s and goddess’ pics to represent our mood..Do you know what this pic means and what’s the story behind it."

Another said: “We don’t care about your mood…..you should delete this post otherwise Indians soon change their mood.”

And a third one said: “How ridiculous this? You don’t have permission to upload a picture of our goddess on this f**king social media and embarrassing our culture.”
