Katy Perry gets trolled for posting picture of Goddess Kali

American singer Katy Perry became a victim of online trolls when she posted an image of Indian Goddess Kali on social media to depict her "current mood".

Following a whirlwind weekend partying at Coachella to the likes of Lorde, The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry has now come under fire for a recent photograph posted to Instagram.

While another wrote: "This is a shameful and offensive act".

One of the user wrote, "Don't disrespect Indian Goddess. this can't be called as mood. have some values".

Kali Ma is known in the Hindu religion as the goddess of creation, preservation and destruction, often referred to as "Dark Mother" for her role as a destroyer of evil forces.

In the past, the 32-year-old has said that although she was raised in a conservative Christian household and both her parents were pastors, she did not identify with any religion.

Despite saying she didn't belong to a particular faith, Perry married her first husband, comedian Russell Brand, in a private Hindu ceremony in India in 2010.

The couple reportedly stayed at the Oberoi Vanyavilas hotel during their wedding trip and posted an image together outside of the Taj Mahal during the same trip. They parted ways in 2012.
