Katy Perry’s Shoes Are Being Pulled From Shelves Amid Blackface Backlash

Posted on

Although a source tells TMZ that the shoe is merely part of a line of shoes that bare facial features and has no racial undertones, the brand will remove the products from their retailers. “In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes,” the source said.

Perry now joins the ranks of companies like Moncler and Gucci who have been cited for their use of blackface as seasonal fashion. The neglectfulness of her brand also enters her into the drama about blackface that was sparked by leaked pictures of Virginia governor Ralph Northam.
