In a new Australian ad for Katy Perry’s Witness tour, Katy says to her dog, “Let’s go chase some koalas, nugget!”
Turns out, a minimum of 43,000 koalas get treated for wild dog attacks in Australia every year, which makes koala lovers and animal activists not very happy about her “innocent” comment.
Myer, the Australian department store that was running the ad released a statement saying:
“We are aware of comments in relation to Katy Perry’s Witness: The Tour advertisement and a particular reference made to koalas. We are currently removing the material which references koalas.”
