Claim : Katy Perry Suffered Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

A video of Katy Perry performing recently at Las Vegas has gone viral, after it showed her suffering some kind of eye glitch on stage.

The video, which was uploaded to TikTok, showed the 38 year-old singer struggling to open her right eye in the middle of her performance.

Almost immediately, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that she’s suffering from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. Here are some examples:

Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. It’s known as the Pfizer eye #PfizerEyes

#KatyPerry: Eye of the #Pfizer. Almost sad if she wasn’t another crazy cultist

Steve Kirsch : There is something very wrong here. My vaccine injured friends would bet the farm that it’s a vaccine injury. If it was the vaccine, she wouldn’t be able to admit it.

The fact that she has said nothing about this on her Twitter feed is also very suspicious. Everyone is talking about this. So it means there isn’t an explanation for this incident that she is allowed to share with the public that the public will believe (that is consistent with what we all observed).

So I’m guessing a COVID vaccine side effect.

Truth : Katy Perry Did NOT Get Eye Glitch From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Katy Perry Apparently Does This Quite Frequently

Katy Perry fans, who call themselves KatyCats, claim that it’s actually part of her act – to mimic old dolls that open and close their eyes when you tilt them.

OK so this is some weird gag she does at her show to resemble those old dolls that opened and closed their eyes when you tilted them.

I was kinda worried it was a stroke or surgery mishap. But no, she does that on purpose.

Yeah she does it pretty frequently during the show. Not every night but she’s done it at least once per 8 show run.

Fact #2 : Katy Perry Does Eye Glitch As Party Trick!

On October 28, Katy Perry publicly addressed the viral eye glitch video, explaining that it was just a “party trick” for her shows. This was what her fans pointed out earlier (see Fact #1 above).

She also mocked conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists who blamed it on the vaccine, calling them “flatearthers” “spaceisfakers”, “birdsarentrealers” and “skyisntbluers”.

She then invited them to watch her repeat her eye glitch party trick in her upcoming 2023 concerts! Such sass!

Fact #3 : Katy Perry May Have Had An Itch

Here is a possible reason on Reddit for her closing an eyelid that only “magically” opened after she rubbed her temple.

Since there are no women on this sub, this is from my friend who is a professional makeup artist, ‘Katy has false lashes on in this. It’s likely there’s something in her eye, or bothering her eye, but she can’t rub them because it will ruin her make up.

Stage make up is very heavy and will get everywhere when you touch it. She’s gentling pulling her temple area to try and alleviate the itch or clear whatever is bothering her eye without doing damage. I have models that do this weekly.

Fact #4 : Katy Perry Has A Wonk Eye

While serving as a judge on the 16th season of American Idol in 2018, Katy Perry shared with a contestant Caleb Kennedy that she has a wonk eye, also known as a lazy eye :

I have a wonk eye as well, and I used to be worried about it. Then a bunch of my fans created a fandom over my wonk-eye. I even have a fandom that calls itself, ‘Katy’s wonk-eye.’

It’s my right eye. So just celebrate all that stuff. Don’t worry about it.

Antivax tech millionaire shared a YouTube video claiming to prove that Katy Perry’s wonk eye is actually her left eye. That video was likely flipped, as Katy herself said that it was her right eye that’s wonky.

Fact #5 : Katy Perry Could Have Had Blepharospasm

Whether her left or right eye is the wonky one, Katy Perry could have had blepharospasm – a fancy term for the involuntary twitching or closing of the eyelid.

Blepharospasm can happen to one or both eyes, and is characterised by “uncontrollable eyelid closure” and/or twitching of the eye muscles.

It is likely that she was touching her twitching facial muscles during the spasm, in an attempt to control them and regain control of her eyelid.

Nevertheless, she seemed unfazed by it, bellowing into the microphone, “Make even more noise for my band!

Fact #6 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Now, let me just clear up this nonsense claim that Katy Perry is suffering from the same Ramsay Hunt syndrome that Justin Bieber is suffering from.

The viral video clearly shows that only her eyelid is affected. She does not have half her face paralysed as some have claimed. If half her face had been paralysed, she would have trouble speaking, never mind singing!

Facial paralysis from Ramsay Hunt syndrome cannot be corrected by quickly touching her temple either.

Fact #7 : Katy Perry Does Not Have Bell’s Palsy

Similarly, Katy Perry isn’t suffering from Bell’s palsy, which presents similarly to Ramsay Hunt syndrome in the form of facial paralysis on one side of the face.

Again, she would not be able to speak or sing properly, if half her face was paralysed and this paralysis cannot be quickly fixed by simply touching her temple.

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
