Katy Perry video edited after it upsets Muslims

A pendant has been removed from a Katy Perry video after a group started a change.org petition against its use.

"The video is considered as highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy," says the petition. "At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word 'Allah', which is the arabic word for God."

In the edited video, you can see a necklace that no longer bears a pendant.
