Sabrina Carpenter responds to Catholic Church video controversy

Sabrina Carpenter has responded to the controversy surrounding her “Feather” music video.

The former Disney Channel star, 24, sings and dances in a short black dress as several men fight over at a Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn, New York City.

The Diocese of Brooklyn said that it was “appalled at what was filmed” inside the church and pastor Monsignor Jamie J Gigantiello was stripped of his administrative duties after the video was released.

Speaking to Variety in a new interview, Carpenter responded to the controversy, saying that she had received “approval in advance” to film at the church.

“And Jesus was a carpenter,” she added.
