23 hours later: the "offensive" Katy Perry video is edited, as predicted…

Michael Coren & Tarek Fatah on the Katy Perry Dark Horse video

Yesterday I wrote this:

The countdown has begun. How long before the offensive vid will be taken down or  edited? Hollyweirdo’s are not known for courage or standing their ground when Muselmaniacs come knocking. I won’t hold my breath.

Call me a prophet already. And I didn’t even have a crystal ball:

Katy Perry quietly removes “Allah” symbol from video to please enraged Muslims

  wrote here:

“the smart money is on Katy Perry, an addled PC Leftist and former consort of the execrable jihad enabler Russell Brand, apologizing and editing the video to remove the Offense to Islam.” She hasn’t apologized as yet, but she did swiftly capitulate. Katy Perry is a committed Leftist and wouldn’t dare do anything to offend their victims du jour. She isn’t about to become the next martyr for the freedom of expression. Freedom can take care of itself, as long as Katy keeps getting invited to the best parties.

“YouTube quietly removes ‘Allah’ symbol from Katy Perry video,” by Lauren Izso for the Jerusalem Post, February 27:

YouTube has quietly edited a Katy Perry music video, after a petition launched on Change.org, urging the online video streaming company to remove the video.

The petition, claiming that Perry literally burns a symbol representing the Muslim God, Allah, reached 50,000 signatures as of Wednesday. YouTube and Perry’s representatives did not respond to the controversy.

Shazad Iqbal, 22, creator of the petition, posted on Wednesday that the effort had ended in victory, however YouTube remained quiet throughout, even though the petition was directed at them.

“I’m thrilled to let you all know the name of Allah has been removed from the ‘Dark Horse’ video we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard! God bless you all,” Iqbal wrote.

A close look at the “Dark Horse” video on Perry’s VEVO YouTube channel will not prove much of anything. Although the post date of the music video has not changed (February 20), a detailed observation will show any viewer that something has changed. The symbol has quietly been removed.

The “I Kissed a Girl” singer’s latest single, “Dark Horse,” sparked harsh reactions from the international Muslim community for disrespecting a symbol representing their God, Allah.

The petition launched Tuesday on Change.org is urged supporters of Islam as well as other religions, to ask YouTube to remove the “blasphemous” music video.

Perry portrays an animated representation of Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, and she is seen using her powers to destroy those who oppose her. One character in the video is seen wearing a religious symbol around his neck, who she then zaps into a pile of sand, along with his pendant.

“At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word ‘Allah’, which is the Arabic word for God,” says the online petition.

  1. I reamed Muslims for an hour on Youtube yesterday about this video. Apparently, it did a lot of good, huh? Oh, well, I enraged a few Muslims at least.

  2. Musselmaniacs must be feeling very gratified that Ms Perry has submitted to Sharia Law..guess its a powerful indictment against Islam that even a wealthy world famous star is terrified od reprisals against her and her family by the so called religion of peace.. What a joke muslims are, and an even bigger joke are we in the West who grant their every wish to subdue us

  3. Katy Perry is a complete disgrace anyway. Removal of all of her “performances” would be a big improvement!

  4. Yuuuup, they don’t get much more craven and contemptible in their response to Islamic supremacism than Youtube( apologies to David Cameron, your lead is unassailable) . As for Katy Perry …..next .
