Singer Katy Perry has pulled a line of shoes from her Katy Perry Collections clothing brand after online critics accused the shoes of being racist and portraying “blackface.”

As Today.com reports, the shoes – which also come in beige – were adorned with facial features:

“The pop star’s brand, Katy Perry Collections, has yanked a pair of its shoes because of comparisons to blackface.

“The Rue Face Slip-On Loafers and the high-heeled Ora Face Block Heel Sandal are being removed from shelves and taken off the company's website. They were available in either black or beige and sold for $129.

“The products, which feature blue eyes, triangles noses and red lips on a black background, has come under intense scrutiny on social media.”
