AceShowbiz - Katy Perry has landed in hot water after voting for billionaire Rick Caruso in the Los Angeles mayoral race. The "Roar" hitmaker found herself being dragged by her disappointed fans because the former Republican donated nearly $1 million to Sen. Mitch McConnell and former President George W. Bush, who have backed anti-abortion policies.
On Monday, November 7, Katy shared on Instagram some photos of herself inside the voting booth. She captioned the post by writing, "I am voting for a myriad of reasons (see the news) but in particular because Los Angeles is a hot mess atm. #letsgocaruso."
Many have since reacted to the post. One in particular was comedian Travon Free, who wrote on Twitter, "As much as the right try to spin it, Katy Perry voting for Rick Caruso is not an indication of anything other than a rich white woman voting for a fake democrat who will ultimately have no effect on the quality of her life but will worsen the lives of many others."
"Katy perry tweeting out a pro-choice video while voting for rick caruso would be objectively hilarious if it wasn't painfully dumb," another argued. A third added, "Katy Perry voting for Rick Caruso for LA Mayor is incredibly disappointing. Please vote Karen Bass a community oriented politician not a businessman with a redundant platform on homelessness and and a history of donating to anti-choice orgs and initiatives."
Katy has been a vocal supporter of Rick. In June, she declared on Twitter, "RICK CARUSO FTW !" She unsurprisingly faced backlash after posting the tweet.
"Babe he's an anti abortion billionaire who builds malls," one person commented at the time. A different individual simply asked, "So you're anti-choice?"
