The post was a pic of The New York Times front page, where her dress from the Met Gala featured at the bottom of the page.
She captioned it, "May 2, 2017. All the news that's fit to print☝❤️."
Sure, she might be impressed with herself for making the front page, but fans are quick to point out that the image above her is of a police man set on at the May Day rally in France, after conflicts arise between America and North Korea.
Some comments on her Instagram include:
"Wow, insensitive. Theres a man on fire and all you care about is that god awful dress? You lost my respect. Rethink your priorities in life."
"Wtf! ! A man is on fire just there and you are publishing a picture of the note of your dress??? What's f*** wrong with humanity! ! ! That makes me go sick 😡😠😡😡😠😠😠"
"@katyperry HELLO self absorbed... Didn't you even notice that a police officer is on FIRE on that page as well. DISGUSTING 👎💩"
Katy hasn't yet responded to the controversy, but some fans have come to her defense.
"Can nobody see that the point you are all arguing is the point that she's probably trying to get across to the newspaper?? Although, not done very well, she's telling the paper that she should not be front page news."
Hmm... what do you guys think her intentions were?
