Katy Perry threw pizza slices
In the viral video, Katy Perry was spotted in a pink outfit dancing in a nightclub and someone next to her was holding a large pizza box. She then put one slice on a paper plate and tossed it into the crowd. Fans were visibly fighting for the slice that fell on the ground. She then throws a second slice, which instantly disappears.
Some people on social media felt it was disrespectful
The singer was accused of wasting food by people on social media. They linked this incident to world hunger and were not happy with the singer.
I mean, this sure won’t cause hunger around the world, but the sense? You should look cooler? Fierce? Better? I don’t see it Katy, stop trying so hard..

That's gross and unacceptable and makes me mad. Millions around the globe have nothing to eat and you're just throwing away food. Unbelievable.

Shame on you. Throwing food like its a thing to play or for entertainment. Disgusting

@katyperry Please don't post such things. This shows disrespect towards meals. There are a lot of kids, children and people starving and dying out of hunger. Please distribute it to them in a kind way, if you wish to.🙂

The singer received backlash last month for her 4th of July tweet
Last month, she received backlash on Twitter for her pro-choice tweet, which was later deleted. She was called a hypocrite as people pointed out that she endorsed billionaire businessman Rick Caruso, who has stated in his old interviews that he opposes abortion in most cases.
Katy Perry began her career in 2001
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, widely known as Katy Perry, dropped her first album Katy Hudson in 2001, under Red Hill Records. The album was quite a flop but that didn’t stop the singer. She then moved to Los Angeles and rose to fame in 2008 thanks to her second album, One of the Boys (2008), which featured her debut single I Kissed a Girl, and another hit single Hot n Cold, which respectively reached number one and three on the US Billboard Hot 100. The singer’s popularity has been growing ever since and today she is one of the most famous singers of all time.
