Katy Perry Slammed For Racist Remarks!

by at .

It's been a tough week for Katy Perry.

The singer, who previously seemed to enjoy her rival Taylor Swift's PR nightmares, is now experiencing a public image crisis of her own.

The trouble started last week, when Katy was slammed by LGBT groups for collaborating with Migos, a hip hop crew whose members have expressed homophobic views in the past.

The situation deteriorated rapidly from there, beginning with a strange controversy involving Katy's newly blonde hair and the presidency of Barack Obama.

Yes, you read that correctly.

During an Instagram Live session over the weekend, a fan innocently noted that she prefers Katy's natural hair color - which bizarrely prompted Perry to go on the defensive and get political.

"Oh, someone says, 'I miss your old black hair,'" she said, before replying in a mocking tone:

"Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later."

The "joke" went over like a lead balloon, with many describing the remark as racist (Why does Katy equate black hair with Barack Obama?) while others believe she was simply being dismissive of the very real political concerns of her fans.

Today, Katy's situation became exponentially worse, as Mano, a producer known for his work with The Weeknd, reminded fans of a 2013 incident in which Katy allegedly addressed him using the n-word.

Mano first spoke of the incident shortly after it happened, with this tweet from June 13, 2013:

"I wish y'all coulda been there when @katyPerry referred 2 me as a "nigga"ironically in Paris. y'all know she says it regularly right."

The incident came up again as a result of Katy's latest problematic remarks, and this time, Manos came bearing receipts:

In addition to the photo evidence indicating that he was with Katy on the night in question, Manos went into greater detail about the singer's comments:

"This was the day b4 ye fashion show. while she was juke'n my cuz she started calling us her 'niggas' and we asked her 2 stop a few times," Manos tweeted.

Pressed to go into greater detail, Manos had this to say:

"Yep it happened in a club in paris.......smh she really thought she had the right. honestly my feelings were hurt and i was offended."

Sounds like Katy has some serious explaining to do.
