Katy Perry faces backlash after billionaire Rick Caruso voted in Los Angeles mayoral elections

Katy Perry is being hated online for her decision to vote for billionaire Rick Caruso in the Los Angeles mayoral election. The pop star posted a photo on Instagram on Monday, that showed her casting her vote for Caruso against Congresswoman Karen Bass.

Fans are disappointed with Perry for supporting the candidate-turned-Democrats from Republicans in 2019 who had earlier supported anti-abortion policies. Read on to learn more about the development.

Katy Perry voted for Rick Caruso in the Los Angeles mayoral election

On November 7, Perry raised eyebrows after posting a series of photos of her casting her vote in the mayoral election. “I vote for a myriad of reasons (see news) but in particular because Los Angeles is a messy ATM. #letsgocaruso #yestomeasure28 #yestomeasure1 #doyoubutjustuseyourvoteok,” the 38-year-old wrote in the caption.

The post led to a backlash from fans, who accused the singer of voting against progressiveness by not supporting Representative Karen Bass. Perry was criticized in her comments, after which she suspended the department.

Caruso is a real estate billionaire who has previously supported anti-abortion organizations. He has now pledged $1 million to support the abortion rights proposal, but the donation has yet to be made. His campaign promises include fighting homelessness and rising crime in the city.

Celebrities and fans Hello Katy Perry

Many celebrities called out Berry for her decision on social media. Comedian Travonrye tweeted, “As much as you try to get it right, Katy Perry’s vote for Rick Caruso is not indicative of anything other than a rich white woman voting for a fake Democrat that will ultimately have no effect on her character’s quality of life but she does. It will worsen the lives of many others.”

One fan wrote, “Katy Perry tweeting a pro-choice video while voting for Rick Caruso would be objectively hilarious if not painfully stupid.” Another person tweeted, “Katy Perry shared a pro-choice video earlier this week then voted Republican today. I can’t fully explain how stupid that was.”

“Katy Perry’s vote for Rick Caruso for mayor of Los Angeles is incredibly disappointing. Please vote for Karen Bass, a community-oriented politician not an entrepreneur with a surplus platform on homelessness and a history of donating to anti-choice organizations and initiatives,” another fan tweeted.

Berry expressed her support for Caruso earlier as well

This is not the first time that Perry has openly supported the Democrat. In June of this year, she made it clear that she would vote for Caruso when she tweeted, “RICK CARUSOTW❗️” The singer received criticism at the time as well.

The businessman then replied: “Kate, thank you for your support. One day, I hope to be able to serve all Angelenos.” Meanwhile, a number of other celebrities have also pledged their support for Caruso, including Snoop Dogg, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Chris Pratt.

“I’ve lived in Los Angeles for over 20 years. It’s been amazing to me…in that time I’ve seen what many residents have seen here, the gradual decline of the city into absolute pain and chaos. If you live here, you know exactly what I’m talking about. I don’t usually support political candidates. But in this election, there’s a lot to lose,” Pratt wrote on his Instagram story.
