‘No other religion would be made fun of in this way’: Christian fury at Met Gala’s ‘blasphemous’ Catholic theme as Rihanna goes dressed as the Pope and Katy Perry wears angel’s wing
Catholics have vented their fury at last night’s ‘disrespectful’ and ‘blasphemous’
theme, which encouraged celebrities to wear outfits inspired by Christianity.
The annual fundraising fete in New York brings out Hollywood’s elite to celebrate the spring exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, with this year’s titled: ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.’
Pop star Rihanna created the biggest stir, attending in a short skirt, robe and mitre-like hat reminiscent of the Pope’s headgear.
Social media users were up in arms over some of the more outrageous outfits – with some saying they had been left ‘upset and distraught’ over the choice of theme.
