Singer Katy Perry has been relentlessly trolled on social media for sharing a picture of goddess Kali on Instagram, with a particular section of Twitter accusing her of being disrespectful.

On Instagram, Katy shared the image and captioned it as "current mood." Several followers condemned the singer and posted condescending comments beneath the picture.

"Don't disrespect Indian Goddess. This can't be called as mood.. have some values. Just delete this picture. (No hate for her)," one user wrote.

Another user wrote that it was not a good idea for the singer to use a religious image to represent her mood.

"This is a little offensive to the Hindu community because the meaning behind this photo and god symbolises something different. Not sure what you intended it for, but it's supposed to symbolise strength, and courage," another Instagram user posted.
