During her tribute, the show supplied pizza for Katy and the other judges. This seemed to be a fun moment and Katy took some time to interact with the fact. She had a piece of pizza and looked at the fans, who were screaming in encouragement to her. She shrugged and tossed a slice of pizza into the crowd. Sadly, no one was able to catch it and it hit the floor.

Despite this, the fans clapped and laughed and it was clear everyone was having a good time. However, it seems that while the fans in attendance loved every second of the interaction, fans at home hated it. Katy took to Instagram to show the moment with the pun “a pizza my heart will always be on the #idol stage.”

  • “I like her ….. but… IT’S NOT RIGHT!!”
  • “This is bad. Shouldn’t throw food just like that.”
  • “That was silly and disrespectful and childish”

Katy Perry was reenacting a meme from 2022. This meme started when Katy was in Las Vegas for her residency and some fans filmed her throwing slices of pizza into a crowd at a nightclub. Katy was standing by a DJ and throwing pizza into the crowd, with most slices hitting the floor.

Katy then shared the video with the comment, “A mother feeding her children.”Many fans were confused at the moment, but it soon became a popular meme. The people blasting Katy Perry are probably oblivious that she was reenacting the meme-worthy moment. However, as the fans at American Idol showed, they loved the moment and that is all that matters.
