Does this mean the claws are officially out? Katy Perry shared a cryptic quote via her Instagram account on Friday, February 19, just two days after singer-songwriter Ryn Weaver went on a Twitter rant against the “Fireworks” singer.
“Chang-An writes, ‘If one befriends another person but lacks the mercy to correct him, one is in fact his enemy,’” the quote reads. “The consequences of a grave offense are extremely difficult to erase. The most important thing is to continually strengthen our wish to benefit others. — Nichiren.”
Perry, 31, captioned the quote with her own thoughts.
“Aka if they ya true homie and they ain’t actin right, smack em wit love or else they gonna get k.o. from the universe n sh-t!” she wrote.
Although it is unclear who the intended target of the pointed quote is, many fans made a connection in the comments between Perry and Weaver, 23, and even Perry’s former BFF Rihanna. (The pair had a rumored falling out in November 2012 after the “Work” singer reunited with her ex, Chris Brown.)
Weaver took to Twitter on Wednesday, February 17, to first diss Perry’s endorsement of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, and then to slam the pop star herself.
In a series of now-deleted tweets, Weaver described how Perry had allegedly bullied her during a Drake concert.
“Anytime I spoke she started turning her head around pretending she heard something, then said, ‘dos [sic] u hear something?’ Weaver wrote. “While staring at me..Anytime I spoke.. After we were already friends.. Did this the entire night… Then came w us to drake and stared at me the WHOLE SHOW.”
When Perry’s loyal fan base slammed Weaver for her comments, the singer-songwriter refused to back down.
“Technically I’m a Katy cat too.. Or was,” she replied to a commenter. “I was personally victimized by Regina George tho…”
