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).
