(NEWSER) – More than 65,000 people have signed apetition calling for YouTube to take down Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" music video because it portrays "blasphemy." A Muslim man started the petition because the video featured one man, a suitor to Perry's Egyptian queen character, wearing a pendant featuring the word "Allah," the BBC reports. Perry's character disintegrates her suitors, burning the man and his pendant. "Blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of God) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames," the petition reads. While the video remains online, Fox News reports that the word "Allah" has been removed from the pendant in response to the petition.
