Popstar Katy Perry is being slammed by the netizens for making a pro-choice tweet on July 4 after previously supporting anti-choice businessman Rick Caruso. Netizens are dubbing her a 'hypocrite' for tweeting in support of women's abortion rights after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

The decision has led to abortion being banned in several states across the country, leaving women with no right to choose what to do with their own bodies. "'Baby you're a firework' is a 10 but women in the US have fewer rights than an actual sparkler smh," the 37-year-old musician tweeted on July 4.

Perry was one of the celebs who supported Caruso running for Mayor. The 63-year-old billionaire has been known to oppose abortion in the past. "As your mayor, I will vigorously protect a woman’s right to choose. Reproductive freedom is a basic human right and any threat to this freedom endangers all women, especially the most vulnerable in our society. #CarusoCan," the real estate developer tweeted recently.

But netizens are not convinced by this sudden change in tune. One user asked, "So less than you gave to the politicians who wanted this outcome then?" Another questioned, "This you?" while attaching an interview screenshot where it states that Caruso opposes abortion. A third said, "Didn't you donate more than half a million dollars to anti-abortion politicians."

A fourth wrote, "You have a lengthy history of being anti-abortion and covering up sexual assault cases at USC. You are no friend to women." A fifth slammed him saying, "Suddenly @RickCarusoLA is pro-choice now that it's time to run for mayor as a 'Democrat.' Caruso has donated millions of dollars to anti-abortion groups and politicians. He's a fraud." A fifth added, "That's funny, because as a donor you gave a shitload of money to antiabortion causes."

Meanwhile, users were also quick to call out Perry. One user tweeted, "Reminder that celebrity girl bosses like Katy Perry & Gweneth Paltrow who are now posting about reproductive rights endorsed Rick Caruso for mayor. Caruso has donated over a million dollars to pro-life causes and Republican candidates including Mitch McConnell." Another said, "Perhaps you should have done a little more research before supporting billionaire Rick Caruso, known anti-abortionist, for Mayor of LA."

A sixth reiterated, "You supported anti-abortion billionaire Rick Caruso for mayor."

While one user replied, "So why did you endorse Rick Caruso for LA mayor when he advocates for stripping more rights away from women? He is a well-known anti-choice conservative, and you told people to vote for him," another asked, "Why did you endorse Rick Caruso? A lifelong Republican until he became a democrat out of convenience but has donated hundreds of thousands to anti-choice Republicans?"
