It has been reported by MTV on Feb. 27 that Katy Perry has received some negative feedback from her music video for Dark Horse. Many Muslims were offended by an image in the video therefore forcing the music video to be edited. There was a petition launched for the highly controversial clip that reportedly portrayed blasphemy. The petition for Katy Perry’s video ultimately drew over 65,000 signatures.

The song Dark Horse was released in September of 2013. Towards the end of January 2014 the song became a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. This was Katy Perry’s ninth number one single with the Billboard Hot 100. The music video to this song was released a little less than a month later on February 20.

In Katy Perry’s Dark Horse the image that is offending people is a minute and 15 seconds in to the video. The video shows a man who wears many necklaces melting in to a pile of sand. Among the chains around his neck there was a pendant that spelled out “Allah” that burned up with him. “Allah” is the Arabic word for God which is why the video created so much outrage. Katy Perry was said to appear to be representing the opposition of God and engulfed the believer along with the word Allah in flames.

A spokesperson for Katy Perry unfortunately would not return any calls for a comment. However it had appeared that the official Katy Perry music video was altered with the “Allah” pendant being blurred out. There are no reports on how the outraged citizens feel about the changes to the video and if they are still appalled that the video still exists.
