Katy Perry Shoes PULLED From Stores Over Blackface Controversy


Music Star / actress Katy Perry is facing backlash for a line of shoes branded by her name that some say resemble blackface.

The New York Post noted, first it was Prada, Then Gucci and now, pop star Katy Perry (who, yes, is apparently a fashion designer) is in hot water for selling shoes that evoke — intentionally or not — the racist imagery.

Both the “Rue Face Slip On Loafers” and the “Ora Face Block Heel Sandal” have been plucked from multiple stores, including Dillard’s and Walmart. Both the loafers and the sandals feature large eyes and red lips against a black or beige background (or gold, in the case of the sandals). While both are unfortunate from a fashion perspective, the black option bears unsettling resemblance to classic blackface makeup, according to Jezebel.

TMZ reports that retailers Dillards and Walmart will pull the offending styles, though not the whole line, from their stores after facing social media backlash.

The incident comes just days after luxe label Gucci pulled a turtleneck featuring a mouth cover with wide red lips from its website. In December, Prada incited anger with a range of accessories featuring black characters with oversize lips.

With several notable figures in the news regarding previous Blackface photos, it was only a matter of time before that cat got out of this bag.

Here are some images of the shoes pulled from shelves.

A sandal like version was also available.

The Blue Checkmark Brigade have come out in full force just like we knew that they would. After all, they can’t stand the idea of not having an iron grip on all your information. They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
