Katy Perry despatched a message this vacation weekend to specific frustration concerning the Roe v. Wade resolution — however all Twitter desires to do is level out what it sees as hypocrisy.
The singer tweeted Monday concerning the 4th of July and what it means in her eyes within the wake of the Supreme Courtroom’s ruling to reverse the landmark resolution … successfully outlawing abortions nearly instantly in a number of states throughout the nation, and extra to come back.
She sarcastically writes, “‘Child you’re a firework’ is a ten however ladies within the US have fewer rights than an precise sparkler smh” — clearly referencing her 2010 observe of the identical identify.
NBD, or so you’ll suppose … slightly than getting praised for her pro-choice sentiment right here — as many celebs have been recently — Katy is definitely getting dragged to no finish proper now. And all of it has to do with who she publicly supported for L.A. Mayor … aka, Rick Caruso.
As we reported … KP was one in all many celebs who endorsed the billionaire entrepreneur and actual property developer working for Mayor. And whereas he did not outright win in June’s election — he has an opportunity to take it residence in Nov. in a runoff race with Rep. Karen Bass.
The issue … Caruso, who’s working as a Dem, has been perceived as wish-washy on his abortion stance over time, at the very least that is what outdated interviews from the 2000s recommend. Till lately … Rick was a Republican and has donated to a variety of GOPers, together with people some say have it out for abortion rights — all of which he is been known as out over of late.
Now, he says he is pro-choice and touts himself as an advocate for ladies’s rights. Sadly for him (and for Katy, it appears) … Twitter’s not shopping for it, and they’re telling Katy to sit down this one out as a consequence of her very vocal help for him.
She’s removed from the one celeb who backed Caruso, although — Kim Kardashian additionally obtained behind him within the run-up to the election final month … however she seems to have properly dodged Twitter to lament the abortion sitch recently.
As a substitute, she’s voiced her displeasure by way of IG Tales — the place random individuals cannot remark or go after her as simply as they may on the outdated hen app . Sensible transfer in hindsight.
