Katy Perry Accused Of Calling Producer The N-Word (Photos)

Singer Katy Perry is once again sparking outrage after a music producer accused her of calling him the N-word in 2013.

Music producer Mano says Perry continued to hurl the insulting word at him in Paris despite his request she stop, Complex magazine reports.

"While she was juke'n my cuz she started calling us her "n*****" and we asked her 2 stop a few times," wrote Mano on April 30, 2017.

"She couldn't understand why [we wanted her stop] and we had 2 explain 2 her that it wasn't endearing and it was really offensive," he continued.

The producer had previously mentioned the incident on Twitter in 2013 and 2015, but it did not receive much attention in the past.

"Whats more amazing is. i tweeted that s*** in 2013 & y'all aint say'n s*** about it until u catch the person red handed?" Mano said. "Who the bigger fool."

"No 1 cared that my feelings were hurt as a person," he continued. "a famous caucasian person thought it was ok 2 say that word 2 me 2 relate with me."

"instead of thinking i am a liar why wouldn't u empathize with me and think man she hurt that guys feelings by acting privileged," added Mano.

What's more, Mano also said in 2013 that Perry regularly used the word.

"I wish y'all coulda been there when @katyPerry referred 2 me as a "n****"ironically in Paris," Mano tweeted in June 2013. "Y'all know she says it regularly right."

Many sympathized with Mano.

"Being a black man living in America who has been called a n**** by some s****y people, as well as having the word "n****" thrown around like it wasn't anything by white people, I get where Mano's coming from," writes Khal for Complex magazine.

Perry recently upset many for making a comparison of her black hair and former President Barack Obama.

"Oh, someone says, 'I miss your old black hair,'" Perry said addressing a fan's comment about her change from long black hair to a cropped blond style, reports Maxim. "Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, Okay. Times change. Bye! See you guys later."

"Wow Katy Perry," tweeted one person. "The reference to former Pres. Obama was offensive & a poor, tasteless attempt at humor. Your privilege is showing."

Others defended Perry and said people were misinterpreting a joke.

"Katy Perry meant she wants Obama back and can't have him same way ppl want her black hair and won't get it back ... Christ ppl lol," wrote a Twitter user in the singer's defense.

Perry has yet to address her controversial comments about Obama or Mano's accusations.
