Singer Katy Perry experienced yet another dose of leftist intolerance over the weekend when she shared her father’s “Nothing But American” clothing collection only to be met with a torrent of criticism.
Perry shared her father’s clothing brand in an Instagram post on Saturday with a note praising him for his work while acknowledging they don’t often agree with each other.
“We haven’t always seen [eye-to-eye] but I’m proud of my dad n bro for coming up with this!” said Perry in the caption.
In the posted video, Perry’s Christian minister father, Keith, is seen wearing a shirt that rejects both the Republican and Democrat labels in favor of simply being labeled an American.
“Hey everyone, I’m Keith and I want to ask you a question,” Keith begins, as reported by Fox News. “Are you tired of the division that is destroying our country? Are you sick of losing your family and friends because they just don’t agree with your political views? Well, I am, and I know there’s a lot of people out there that have the same feeling in the same way.”
“No matter what you believe, at the end of the day we’re all Americans and I designed this T-shirt because I want people to know that, even though you may have a different religion or political view than I do, I still will be there for you and I’ll still consider you my friend, my neighbor and my fellow American,” he continues.
Despite the obvious message of unity, many of Perry’s followers criticized the post.
“This is not about political differences, this is about human rights!” said one user. “This post is kinda disappointing tbh”
“Would rather not (re)connect with people who intentionally voted against my rights and immigrant family,” another user said.
“Girl this ain’t it!” said another. “This ain’t it! Please no! When someone voted for Trump & Co… they’re voting for Homophobia, Racist and so much more! It’s nothing American about that!”
This marks the second time that Perry has endured a cavalcade of woke-scolding since the 2020 presidential election. In early November, on the weekend that the networks declared Joe Biden the winner, Perry found herself in the crosshairs of leftist trolls when she dared to advise people to seek understanding with their Trump-supporting family members and neighbors.
“The first thing I did when the presidency was called is text and call my family members who do not agree and tell them I love them and am here for them. #FamilyFirst. Call your family today. Happy Sunday,” she tweeted.
The responses to Katy Perry’s tweet were nearly identical in their fury.
“I’m not going to do that because those people voted against my basic human rights, but thanks so much for the tip, Katy!” tweeted one user.
“I can’t call my family because they voted against me and my right to love the person I do so no it’s not family first unfortunately and this tweet is a bit insensitive to those who have a similar situation,” tweeted another user.
“The ignorance in this. If they voted for red its a vote against them. Cause what the other party represents. Some ppl’s life are on the online and faced being kicked out. The privilege you have not to face much and stuff. You always never realize what you say its privileged,” tweeted another.
