Katy Perry was bashed by haters after she deleted and retweeted the same tweet due to typographical errors. However, the “Dark Horse” singer has not responded to the backlash and is instead focusing on making a difference on a larger scale.
On Thursday, Perry took to Twitter to show her admiration for Tony Award-winning singer Jennifer Holliday. To show how much she idolizes the Broadway star, Perry dared her almost 95 million followers to look for a “better live vocal performance” than Holliday’s rendition of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” Orlando Bloom’s girlfriend even provided a link to a YouTube-uploaded copy of Holliday’s 1982 performance.
Although many of Perry’s fans were up for the challenge and shared links to what they think could top Holliday’s performance, there were others who were determined to call out Perry for misspelling her “#jenniferholliday” hashtag the first time she posted her tweet. Upon realizing that she did commit a typo, Perry deleted the tweet and posted the same message but with the correct hashtag. For some unknown reason, she once again deleted the tweet and posted the same thing again on her Twitter account.
Despite correcting herself, some bashers did not let the typographical mistake slip. One wrote: “I bet you knew the second you made that typo we were going to drag you to depths.” Another commented: “Typo queen ever!” It seems that this is not the first time Perry reposted erroneous tweets because one commenter asked: “Why are you always deleting and reposting tweets?” Another Twitter user chimed in: “Even the biggest stars have their insecurities, oh well.”
Perry did not respond to the backlash, but she did take to Instagram to flaunt her Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award that was handed to her by none other than her “hero,” Hillary Clinton. The “Roar” hitmaker has been a staunch supporter of the Democratic presidential nominee in the recently concluded U.S. election. Therefore, it is not surprising how happy she was when Clinton presented the award to her at Tuesday night’s UNICEF Snowflake Ball.
According to the 32-year-old singer-songwriter, she was “profoundly moved and thoroughly surprised” when the former Secretary of State gave her the award. Perry also revealed that this just “motivated” her to all the more “fight against social injustice and to promote equality and kindness.”
