Katy Perry's Dark Horse Video Censored After Religious Controversy! See The Changes HERE!

| Filed under: PolitikYouTubeKaty Perry

katy perry dark horse video censored edited religious controversy muslim symbol removed

Katy Perry clearly offended a LOT of people with her Dark Horse video.

After a Muslim viewer pointed out that a man gets melted into sand while wearing an "Allah" pendant, over 60,000 people signed a petition to BAN the music video from YouTube!

In its first week, the video has already gotten over 38 MILLION views, so obvi Katy didn't want to remove the video entirely. But she proved she didn't mean any harm by quickly editing out the offending symbol. The guy still gets melted.

Original Muslim petitioner Shazad Iqbal was pleased with the compromise. He wrote:

"Guys I'm thrilled to let you all know the name of Allah has been removed from the 'Dark Horse' video we couldn't have done it without everyone's support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard!"

See Katy get her raging goddess on in the controversial video HERE. See the new edited version (below).

    you make it sound like Katy had such a big hand in this…when its probably a 99.9% chance..that this was all the label…and she couldnt have cared less.

    Freedom of speech, freedom of expression means nothing to these disgusting people.

    I had a feeling that they were going to have the special effects IT guys re-do that video by erasing the Allah pendant. I bet Katy insisted on it. Katy seems like the kind of girl that tries to get everyone to like her. She also seems to be a "live and let live" peacenik type of person like the 1960s hippies were. Katy's parents used to be flower child hippies back then you know. Katy likes to wear flowers in her hair too. Before she became a preacher, Katy's mother even went out on a date with guitar legend Jimi Hendrix back then. No joke. Small world isn't it?

    Katy probably had no idea what the necklaces on the guy in the video meant since it was written in Arabic. Heck, maybe the costume guy simply went down to where they film "Game of Thrones" and borrowed a few necklaces and had no idea what the pendants meant either. It was probably all a big unintentional screw up. I'm sure Katy will try to go out of her way to be as "politically correct" as possible when she does future performances and videos.

    Once again the hollywood trash people bow in front of the Muslim mob's wrath! And let this be clear. If ever here there was question of crucifix, never the Hollywood trash people would have presented the slightest excuse. The reason for this reversal: They were afraid for their safety, fears of kamikaze suicide bombers.

    Wow muslims sure have a lot of power.

    can katy perry be any more radient and FABULOUS in this video?

  10. Anonymous says – reply to this


    I now have hope in humanity. Katu and her crew CARE. They clearly aren't ignorant. They respect us. Her crew had misunderstood the symbolism of the necklace at first, and had the effort to remove. She is a great role model. Respectful, beautiful and talented.

    Re: Nate – insulting someone's religion is not consider as freedom of speech… i know you are clueless but take it from me i'm a lawyer

    Re: Nate – shut up bitch! Before i go dis your face in some black horse shit and see if you get offended

    Re: IzzyLizzy – its not about having power but many other religious figures dont want the cross nor the david star pashed on music videos. You need to know that religious matters is very important and should always be considered.

  14. xyxyxyxy_anonymous says – reply to this


    Most of you don't know what the hell your talking about. If it was a cross burning there would be a HUGE uproar. And they do have a right to petition it. You would be offended if your religious symbol was burning right? Didn't you know islam and christianity is basically the same religion. They just slapped a different name on it. And Katy probably just heard about it. I doubt she had anything to do with it. The record company didnt want her damed 'muslim hater' and loose money. Who does? I don't think they meant to burn the symbol though. And why do these people have to be disgusting? They are the same as you and me. I totaly agree with them petitioning it. Some of you need to rethink human life. Just because someone worships a different deity doesn't mean their life is any less valuable than yours.

  15. Shut your ignorant ass says – reply to this


    Re: IzzyLizzy – No shit sherlock. Were the second biggest religion.

  16. Shove you ignorant com says – reply to this


    Re: Fear paralyzes the wil – Fear? Kamikaze? What the hell is wrong with you? Do you even know what we muslims believe in? No. Yeah I figured from your ignorant comment that seems to lack intelligence. Have you ever thought of getting your facts right? You haven't? But isn't that a trait you need in order to succeed school? Ohhh, so you're failing school. You should've told me that, so I wouldn't have to correct your stupidity.

    Re: IzzyLizzy

    Muslims sure do have a lot of power when they are united.

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – katy might not hav a hand in this but what would you do if your god or jesus was included with this type of humiliation???
    Kindly respect all kinds of RELIGION
    u dont know about us….

  23. LJH says – reply to this


    It's called freedom of speech.

  24. LJH says – reply to this


    Not that I think it was right, I wish everyone was sensitive to different religions, ethnic groups, etc. At least she did have the symbol edited out and the originator of the petition was pleased.
