Former Disney child actress Sabrina Carpenter released her music video for the song “Feather” on Oct. 31, displaying acts of violence and desecrating a Catholic alter.
The video, directed by Mia Barnes, open with Carpenter pulling up to a Catholic church in a pink hearse for the funerals of multiple men who had done her wrong. The video follows a montage of Carpenter and men whom she portrays as being bothersome.
The men fight over her in a gym scene, where they stab one another until they are all on the ground. Carpenter is seen carefully maneuvering around the men in pink high feelings, not looking particularly bothered by what had occurred. The men are supposed to have wronged her, according to People.

Another scene shows Carpenter, dressed in a racy outfit, dancing in a Catholic church at an altar. The scene also shows coffins next to her with flowers and crosses behind her, including a display that says “R.I.P.”
Some fans praised Carpenter for the video, with one Rolling Stone writer saying, “She lets the universe take care of eradicating the posturing feminist men.”
However, church officials are criticizing leaders who let the pop star film the video inside the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Brooklyn, New York. Bishop Robert Brennan said he was “appalled,” the New York Post reported.
“The parish did not follow diocesan policy regarding the filming on Church property, which includes a review of the scenes and script,” the Diocese of Brooklyn said.
