Controversial Social media users immediately took to the site to criticise the post describing it as'offensive

The object of their hate, this time around, is singer Katy Perry.

American singer Katy Perry became a victim of online trolls when she posted an image of Indian Goddess Kali on social media to depict her "current mood".

The news of Perry's Instagram blunder comes days after Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel - who is engaged to model Miranda Kerr (Bloom's ex wife) - is alleged to have referred to India as a "poor" country, according to a former Variety employee.

Social media users, mostly Indians, flooded her page with comments, accusing the Grammy award victor of being "insensitive". "You Indians please stop getting offended in every petty issues and do something productive (sic)", wrote Koyena Chakrawarti.

As a result, the post has received over 12,000 comments varying in tone, majority claiming the singer's image disrespects Indian culture.

And a third one said: "How ridiculous this?" You're using pics of our Goddesses as memes?' It took place in the north Indian state of Rajasthan.

Most recently, CBN reported that Perry had denounced her religion of birth Christianity. "I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God", she was quoted as saying.

Guess we'll have to wait and watch!
