Katy Perry posts a heavily edited version of Harrison Butker’s right-wing inspired graduation speech for the ‘girls’ and ‘gays’ during Pride month

Katy Perry celebrated the beginning of Pride month by sharing an edited version of Harrison Butker's infamous graduation speech. 

The Teenage Dream songstress chopped up the controversial, 20-minute commencement address, which he delivered at Benedictine College in Kansas last month. 

'Fixed this for my girls, my graduates, and my gays — you can do anything, congratulations and happy pride,' she captioned the Instagram post Saturday. 

 

In Perry's version of the speech – which originally railed against working women, the LGBTQ+ community, abortion and other hot button issues – Butker was heard praising female graduates. 

 

'For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment. You should be proud of all that you have achieved to this point in your young lives,' the 28-year-old appeared to say in the edited clip.

Perry appeared to use the Chiefs kicker's words from throughout the address, however the clip was heavily edited to manipulate the order in which they were spoken. 

'How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you're going to get in your career? I would venture to guess the women here today are going to lead successful careers in the world,' Butker continued in the 39-year-old's edit. 

'I say all of this to you because I have seen it firsthand, how much happier someone can be supporting women and not saying that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,' he was heard saying in the mother-of-one's post.

'The road ahead is bright, things are changing, society is shifting and people young and old are embracing diversity equity and inclusion,' he went on. 

'With that said, I want to say happy Pride Month to all of you. And congratulations Class of 2024,' the edited speech concluded.

The Roar hitmaker turned off comments on the post, however it garnered more than 100,000 likes in less than 24 hours. 

Meanwhile, Butker joined his teammates at the White House, after slamming President Joe Biden in his commencement speech.

The Kansas City player stood in the back row as Biden welcomed the Super Bowl winners to DC to celebrate their second successive Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The athlete previously branded Biden 'delusional' and accused him of 'supporting the murder of innocent babies' during the Benedictine graduation ceremony. 

'Our own nation is led by a man who publicly and proudly proclaims his Catholic faith, but at the same time is delusional enough to make the sign of the cross during a pro-abortion,' he went on. 

'He has been so vocal in his support for the murder of innocent babies that I'm sure to many people, it appears that you can be both Catholic and pro-choice.' 

The speech swiftly attracted fierce backlash, given a petition was set up to have him removed from the Chiefs' roster ahead of the 2024 NFL season within one day. It has now received over 228,000 signatures.
