Katy Perry’s Shoes Pulled After ‘Blackface’ Backlash

Katy Perry’s shoe line is under new scrutiny in the wake of fashion’s bizarre blackface scandals.

A few of her shoe designs, which you can purchase at Dillard’s and Walmart, feature faces.

“Rue Face Slip On Loafers” and its high-heeled counterpart, the “Ora Face Block Heel Sandal,” come in more than one color — but the black color is causing an uproar.

via TMZ:

The “face” shoes have two eyes, a nose and red lips on them, and they come in two different colors … black and beige. The black one is problematic, because it looks a lot like classic blackface makeup, which the fashion world does not seem to recognize time and again.

The “face” heeled sandals are also problematic … and Katy’s catching major heat for having the shoes on store shelves. Even singer Masika Kalysha is calling for Katy to answer for this, saying on social media … “So we just gonna let Katy Perry slide?”
