American pop star Katy Perry has been verbally attacked by pro-Palestinian supporters after sending a tweet on Monday asking her followers to pray for Israel in light of the recent escalation in the south, The Blaze website reported.
"My prayers are for you guys tonight, Shalom!!! Please pray with us," Perry wrote.
Angry responses were quick to follow. "Katy Perry prays for Israel but spits on Gaza and its murdered children," one of the singer's followers wrote. "Go to hell with Israel," another one said.
Some of the opponents used harsh words against the singer, calling her a "whore" and a "heartless lesbian". One of them even wrote that he hoped her private jet would "crash land in Palestine so they can stamp on you like the whore you are. See if Israel come help you."
Shortly afterwards, the pop star apparently decided to retract her original message. "A kid asked me to pray for him and I did. I don't support any side of violence in any side for any reason," she tweeted.
