It’s been an odd few days for pop-sensation Katy Perry. Not only did she make history after tying Michael Jackson for having five #1 hits off of a single album, but now the week has taken a vitriolic twist. That’s because Perry faced a slew of angry responses from Palestinians and their supporters after she sent a tweet asking others to pray for Israel:
This supportive message offers up the word “shalom” (peace) and seems to indicate Perry’s support for the Jewish state. Of course, it didn’t take long for the Twitterverse to light up with responses from Muslims, Palestinians and others who found the her message less-than-appealing. MichelleMalkin published some of these harsh messages:
Go read the messages at Michelle’s blog. Michelle also reports that Perry, sadly, has “clarified” her statement The nasty attacks, however, have continued! Katy, please understand you cannot appease these miscreants.
