Over the weekend, Katy Perry caught all kinds of heat for her tone deaf "joke" comparing her hair not being black anymore to Barack Obama no longer being in office. Shouts to the internet for going in on her, but it looks like that bullshit was the tip of the iceberg.
Chicago's Mano, who you may remember as being one of the producers on the Weeknd's "The Hills" and being Kanye West's former DJ, has been expounding on a story he started telling about Katy Perry back in 2013, where she called him and his squad "nigga"... while they were up in the club in Paris.
He also mentioned it again in 2015.
With the latest in Katy Perry fuckery hitting the newswire, Mano decided to tweet a pic with her.
Mano then took the time out to provide some more details on the situation, saying he was in the spot with the squad (which appears to have included Plain Pat and Virgil Abloh) and Katy Perry, who was dancing on his friend HXLT at a club "the day 4 ye fashion show."
As Mano's story goes, Katy had no problem calling them "her niggas," and she didn't understand why this was offensive after being told to stop "a few times."
It sounds like Mano was catching flack for sharing the story, but he says he has "no personal vendetta" with Katy.
Being a black man living in America who has been called a nigger by some shitty people, as well as having the word "nigga" thrown around like it wasn't anything by white people, I get where Mano's coming from. That shit can be tough to deal with, especially if he felt that, because of the position he was in at the time, he couldn't check a superstar like Katy Perry.
One person we would like to hear from is Katy Perry, who hasn't spoken about that "joke" or Mano's comments about this incident in 2013. She has promoted her new single with Migos, her upcoming appearance at The Met today, and about kimonos.
