This isn’t the first time Perry has been called out on cutting corners or doing wild stuff in his shows. Many of the wigs used on his shows and films have become legendary on the internet in how unrealistic they are. And one of his Netflix films, A Fall from Grace, was roasted online for how many discrepancies, bad wigs, and other issues were present.
