Katy Perry's shoe that is under scrutiny for resembling blackface is about to be yanked ... TMZ has learned.
Katy's got a whole shoe line for sale at retailers like Dillard's and Walmart -- and a couple of her designs feature what looks similar to blackface ... the "Rue Face Slip On Loafers" and its high-heeled counterpart, "Ora Face Block Heel Sandal."
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?"
Sources connected to Katy tell us these specific shoes are just part of an entire line of shoes she's designed and released ... and they were never intended to be offensive. However, we're told, "In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes."
SJW point singularity is drawing so much into the event horizon...
I agree. 8>)
They remind me of Mrs. Potato Head.
Why would anyone want to wear Mrs. Potato Head on their feet?
That’s considered fashionable these days?
So, will they pull black Barbie as well.
This is so stupid.
Gucci sells a similar shoe...
next she’ll be called racists for offering white shoe but not a black one.
So pull the black ones, keep the beige ones, and watch the sh*tshow that erupts.
Watching the Democrats go absolutely bonkers has never been more entertaining!
Well, one of Alinski’s rules is making them go by their own rules. Hoist on their own petard!
Racist shoes!! Hahaha!
We’ve turned into a nation of ahs. We apologize for every damn thing..which doesn’t need apologizing for.
Will they ban images of black people next, because they remind people of white people in black face? No different than this stupid shoe.
Bunch of PC retards.
Black Shoes Matter
Note the use of a triangle for the nose........Illuminatti.
Oh, no! That licorice is BLACK! ... and you know what you eat it with? That’s right... your mouth... and do you know where your mouth is?! THAT’S RIGHT! ON YOUR FACE!!
Anyone eating this is OBVIOUSLY a White Nationalist!
Dammit! I was going to buy a pair.
