Katy Perry roasted for doing hip-hop dance on ‘Saturday Night Live’

Pop singer Katy Perry’s image has taken a lot of hits lately due to multiple miscues and miscalculations, including the time she threw unnecessary shade at President Obama and set Twitter afire.

Perry, 32, is now being pummeled into oblivion after she began dancing on “Saturday Night Live” shortly after bringing up Migos to perform alongside her.

Needless to say, Perry trying to dance with hip-hop flair was eye pollution at its very worst — replete with her flashing the money sign, “dabbing” and a few other indecipherable motions that made you think the “California Gurls” singer was high on some sort of illicit narcotic. Many have accused Perry of cultural appropriation — using hip-hop and rap artists to try to resuscitate and/or reinvent her career — the same offense that fellow pop star Miley Cyrus was accused of.

Twitter was quick to offer harsh and blunt (and hilarious) critiques of Perry’s putrid performance. Take a look at a sampling of responses:

    The hair is terrible and the dancing was terrible. It’s really hard to say which was worse…

    All that being said, let’s stop whining about the cultural appropriation thing. Unless black people invented bad dancing, I don’t see what she “appropriated”.

    @SrAgri No surprise at the culture appropriation. White people are not equipped to create anything forward thinking or innovative. They have to feed off other cultures, especially black. Because they have no real culture or history. Everything about them is a manufactured lie.

    There is an old saying, that the only thing “white people invented was the patent office”.

    It hurts, literally my teeth hurt.
