Social media has become a double-edged sword for celebrities, offering both validation and scrutiny for their actions. Pop star and Idol judge Katy Perry recently found herself at the center of controversy after flaunting what appeared to be a new Cybertruck on social media.

Perry’s post on X (formerly Twitter) featured her posing beside a Tesla Cybertruck, thanking Elon Musk for the delivery.

However, speculation arose regarding whether she truly owned the vehicle or simply used it for an Idol taping. Regardless, her endorsement of the Cybertruck drew backlash, especially considering recent recalls due to faulty accelerator pedals.

Even Perry’s fans couldn’t overlook the irony, with many joining in the criticism or poking fun at the situation. Detractors accused her of selling out for a quick buck, particularly after Musk responded positively to her post. Despite the storm of controversy, the incident highlights the polarizing nature of the Cybertruck and the influence of celebrity endorsements in modern marketing.
