Pop singer Katy Perry was ridiculed on social media for politicizing Monday’s terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, and using the atrocity to promote a liberal agenda.
When asked about the attack during an appearance of “The Elvis Duran Show” Tuesday, Perry said the following:
“You know I can’t really tell anyone else how they should feel but I just feel devastated. The thing of it is, you know, besides all the weird stuff that goes around on the internet, which is, you know, sometimes a great place, but an absolute, you know, underbelly mob pit of horribleness, I think that the greatest thing that we can do now is just unite as people, as fan bases, all of it, you know?
Cuz I think, like, there, like, as much, you know, whatever we say behind people’s back, cuz the internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go, but I think that the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders, like, we all need to just co-exist.”
The interview can be heard here, with the relevant portion beginning at the 3:30 mark.
Social media users took to Twitter to mock Perry’s suggestion that borders with no barriers would stop the occurrence of terrorism in the world.

I see that Katy Perry has responded to #manchesterterrorattack by demanding “Open Borders”. That’s an impressive level of stupid.
