After Katy Perry’s latest shoe design came under fire when people noticed that they resemble blackface, the shoes are reportedly being removed from store shelves.
The shoes raised eyebrows and even singer Masika Kalysha noticed them and said, “So we just gonna let Katy Perry slide?”
Sources close to Perry said the shoes are part of a larger design line and were never meant to be offensive.
“In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes,” the insider shared.
The news comes on the heels of critics slamming the “Dark Horse” hitmaker’s performance on social media Sunday night for her tribute to Dolly Parton at the Grammy Awards, alongside others stars like Kasey Musgraves and Miley Cyrus.
