PHOENIX — A Christian activist confronted the father of pop superstar Katy Perry outside of a Phoenix radio station last week.
Perry’s father, an evangelical preacher named Keith Hudson, was walking out of an interview at KXEG near 20th Street and Indian School Road when he was confronted by the activist, Christine Weick.
The interaction, which was posted to YouTube by Weick, starts off heated and stays that way. She questions Hudson’s right to have a ministry because of his “wicked” and “Satanic” daughter.
A family representative attempts to clear her away, but the argument continues.
Weick accuses Perry’s videos — specifically “E.T.” — of corrupting “millions of young women and men,” including her own son with whom she no longer has contact, and taking them all to hell. She also puts some of the blame on Hudson’s shoulders.
Hudson remains calm throughout the entire interaction, telling Weick he has nothing to do with his daughter’s music or videos and questions Weick’s actions.
“Do you think you’re acting like a Christian right now?” he asked at one point.
The confrontation comes to a close when Weick calls Perry “wicked” one last time before walking away.
Weick, who was in town for a speaking engagement, told 12 News she experienced a “righteous anger that day.”
Hudson later told TMZ it was the first time he has ever been so viciously confronted about Perry.
