Mac hit out at the Idol judge in a lengthy statement posted under an Instagram photo of her posing as Elastigirl on Monday.

He said Wé idolized Katy for years and accused the Firework singer of devastating his daughter while critiquing her performance on the show.

Mac wrote: “Several years ago, an impressionable teenager was in Chaplin Studios to record an Apple recording for her tenure on the Voice as the youngest minor finalist that year.

“She still had stars in her eyes as she became exhilarated by living a dream with her proximity to people she had only fantasized about.

“Once done she rushed out of her long recording session, screaming ‘Daddy did you see her?’ I said who she said that was Katy Perry.

“I was astounded by the fact that I didn’t realize that the lady dressed in all black with a little dog who briefly stood by my side was in fact one of my daughter’s icons.

“That was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be up close and personal with someone who had reached enormous fame. My daughter was extremely excited and that made her day worthwhile.”

Mac went on: “As fate would have it that impressionable teenager met her as a young adult on the American Idol stage.

“The young girl known as Wé McDonald now known as Wé Ani stood in front of someone who she had once idolized devastated her with an undeserved snarky response as a redirect to critiquing her show performance.

“It was a dagger in the heart given by a respected star with concern regarding any of Katy’s subsequence responses regarding her American Idol performances.”

MAC CLAPS BACK

He concluded: “The star designation descended to a regular bully that attacked Wé Ani as a child.

“No acknowledgment or apology, just a collar pop and a shoulder brush. Remember this, lesson learned. See you at the Grammys.”

Mac did not clarify which comments Katy made that had upset his daughter.

However, late last month, Katy was called out for behaving rudely toward Wé.

The singer was slammed for looking shocked when Wé was picked as the last person to go through to the top 12 and for failing to give her any feedback after her performance.

New Jersey singer Wé was picked out of Dawson Wayne, Elijah McCormick, and Malik Heard to join the 12 contestants who made it to the next round.

‘RUDE’ BEHAVIOR

The camera panned to Katy at the judge’s table, who looked shocked at the news.

Wé then performed Adele’s song Skyfall to round out the show.

Instead of giving feedback on her performance, Katy announced that she was “shook” over the results of the vote and urged viewers to vote for their favorite.

Wé was eliminated from Idol last Sunday along with Zachariah Smith.

Colin Stough, Megan Danielle, and Iam Tongi have all made it to the Idol finale, which airs on Sunday.

Furious viewers said Wé was robbed of a place in the top three.

One tweeted: “This show is rigged. We Ani should definitely be this season’s winner.”

Another added: “We Ani is the best singer in American Idol. She is this generation Whitney Houston. You can’t compare her with Colin or Iam. American Idol is Rigged.”

Fans have been backing the powerhouse singer since the very start of this season of the ABC singing competition.
