Katy Perry Slammed For Shoes Resembling 'Blackface'
CNN reports Katy Perry is being called out for creating fashion that evokes blackface.The singer's namesake brand faces criticism over two styles of shoes that some say feature racist imagery.Perry debuted her line of whimsical shoes in 2017.
The Ora Face Block Heel and Rue Face Slip-On Loafers come in black and beige.
The vamps in both styles include the same protruding eyes, nose and full red lips.
The sandal and the loafer were temporarily available on the Dillard's website.
On Monday afternoon, images and descriptions of the shoes were replaced with the message, "This item is not available for internet purchase."
