Muslims are petitioning YouTube to remove Katy Perry’s latest video.

They say it’s offensive because a character in the video with a pendant that says God in Arabic is turned to sand.

Al Arabiya reported:

An online petition launched on Tuesday by Muslims around the world demands that Katy Perry’s music video for “Dark Horse,” in which a ‘God’ pendant is seen being burned, be removed from Youtube.

At 1:15 into the video, a man is shown wearing two pendants, one of which says God in Arabic. Perry, who plays a queen-like figure in the video, zaps the man with lightening and he disintegrates into sand; his pendant disappearing with him.

Petitioners argue that the pop diva is meant to symbolize the opposition of God, making the video blasphemous.

The video, which has a cartoonish Ancient Egypt theme, features other nonsensical aspects such as cat-human hybrid as body guards with whom Perry pole dances with, a dog which walks on its hind legs, and Perry eating spicy junk food.
