Katy Perry Called Out for “Mom-Shaming” on ‘Idol’YouTube

American Idol contestant Sara Beth Liebe has accused Katy Perry of making a hurtful “mom-shaming” joke during her audition. The joke in question came after Sara Beth revealed her age and the fact that she has three children. This prompted a shocked reaction from the judges, including from Katy who stood up in disbelief.

“If Katy lays on the table, I think I’m going to pass out,” Sara Beth said, while Katy shot back, “Honey, you’ve been laying on the table too much.”

In response, Sara Beth dropped a TikTok saying, “While I was on the show, there was a joke that was made that’s gotten a lot of attention, and I’ve gotten a lot of people reaching out to me asking how I’m feeling. So I figured this was probably the easiest way to address it." She went on to add, "It was embarrassing to have that on TV, and it was hurtful," and said she wasn't OK with "mom-shaming" since "it’s hard enough to be a mom and it’s hard enough to be a woman.”

“Keep loving your babies," Sara Beth continued. "Nobody deserves to feel crappy about that. Bottom line, I don't think there's anything really more to it. I think if you’re a good mama and you love your babies, that’s all that really matters. Other comments just don’t feel necessary.”

Katy doesn't appear to have responded to Sara Beth's TikTok as of yet, but...thoughts?
