Katy Perry and her eponymous shoe line, Katy Perry Collections, are taking heat for two designs that appear to resemble blackface. TMZ reports that the two styles, the "Rue Face Slip On Loafers" and "Ora Face Block Heel Sandals," are being pulled from stores due to the backlash.
"In order to be respectful and sensitive, the team is in the process of pulling the shoes," a source told the publication.
The loafers come in two colorways, neutral and black, and the high-heeled version in gold and black. Both designs feature blue eyes, a triangular nose, and bright red lips.
The controversy comes less than a week after Gucci pulled and apologized for a sweater featuring similar bright red lips.
Cosmopolitan reached out to Katy Perry Collections and will update this post if they respond.
