Katy Perry's fashion brand comes on fire for some patterns some fans feel are similar to blackface.
On Monday, after a rising scream, the company pulled two types of options from its line: Rue Face slip on loafer and Ora Face block heel sandal, according to USA Today . The shoes come in black, gold and beige and sell for $ 129.
Of course, it's the black option that has taken the world by the fashion world and beyond. It has lips, a nose and applications that look like eyes on the bucket top. Although the shoe is no longer available on the Perry label website, it is still available from resellers like Forever 21.
ET has reached out to the singer's rep for comments.
The troubled shoe design arrives as Virginia is facing a blown-out crisis because Governor Ralph Northam admitted he was carrying blackface during his medical school duties. Also, state lawyer general secretary Mark Herring admitted wearing blackface to a party when he was 19, according to BBC .
