Pop singer Sabrina Carpenter shot a controversial music video in a century-old Brooklyn Catholic church resulting in the Bishop having to re-bless the altar with holy water.
The song “Feather” was videoed at the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church. Carpenter, 24, wore a skimpy suggestive outfit while gyrating in front of the altar and singing a song about the bloody deaths of a number of men who wronged her. It was released last week and has over five million views.
“At one point, she struts into the church to attend a funeral for the dead men, where she moves through a number of pastel coffins, one of which includes the inscription ‘RIP B****,'” the Daily Mail wrote.

“The music video, which was released on Halloween, shows the singer in a variety of scenes, including a street, a gym, as well as the church. She is scantily clad through most of the video and spattered with blood at one point,” ABC15 News noted.
“Carpenter appeared at one point in the video with no pants while profane decorations lay atop and around the altar,” CNA reported. “The video depicted several men fighting over the singer and eventually killing each other over her; their funeral coffins appear to end up in the Catholic church in the video.”
Brooklyn Bishop Father Robert Brennan took action after watching the video. He was disgusted and “appalled” by the message and the display promoted by the pop singer.
The bishop chastised the parish in a statement for allowing the video to take place, “The parish did not follow diocesan policy regarding the filming on Church property, which includes a review of the scenes and script.”

“The parish first claimed the production company ‘failed to accurately represent the video content,’ but an investigation found that the documents given to the parish provided sufficient description of ‘inappropriate behavior unsuitable for a church sanctuary,'” the Daily Mail reported.
Monsignor Jamie Giantiello was removed from his position as vicar of the parish by the bishop. He will still be a pastor at the church.
“John Notaro, executive director of the Catholic Foundation of Brooklyn and Queens and Futures in Education, has also taken over Gigantiello’s administrative responsibilities for those respective organizations,” Fox News reported.
Father Brennan and Monsignor Grimaldi conducted a Mass of Reparation where the bishop re-blessed the altar with holy water.

“Through the offering of this Mass, Bishop Brennan has restored the sanctity of this church and repaired the harm,” the diocese said in a statement following the Mass.
The Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Its history goes back to 1863 and it is a gathering place for Lithuanian Americans. Sunday Mass is reportedly conducted entirely in Lithuanian.
Carpenter opened for pop singer Taylor Swift during the Latin American leg of her Eras tour. She also performed during her own Emails I Can’t Send tour that traversed North America, South America, Europe, and parts of Southeast Asia.
The pop singer is set to star in an upcoming Alice in Wonderland musical for Netflix.
