Katy Perry is seeking cover right now with all the incoming verbal missiles exploding around her after she made an “off-color” joke about former President Barack Obama. Perry has been courting trouble with her recent culture-appropriating behavior of rocking cornrows and gold teeth.

Now she’s crossed the line, according to social media.

The “Firework” singer raised eyebrows during an Instagram Live session over the weekend when she compared dying her black hair blonde to former President Barack Obama being replaced by Donald Trump.

“Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,’ ” she said before sarcastically replying, “Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.”

She then started laughing, looking at her friends around her for approval:

“I should leave now,” she said. One of her pals

One of her pals replied, “OK, you’re cut off,” as Perry ended the livestream.

Perry couldn’t leave fast enough with the way the responses are coming down on her like an avalanche. Take a look at some of the responses to Perry’s tasteless and senseless joke:
