TMZ reports that Katy Perry is pulling two of her controversial shoe designs that resemble blackface. The “Rue Face Slip on Loafers” and the “Ora Face Block Heel Sandal” both feature black versions that include two eyes, a nose, and red lips, making them look very similar to blackface makeup.

Stores like Dillard’s and Walmart carry Perry’s shoes.

People close to Perry say the shoes were never meant to be offensive, but that they are pulling them anyway to be “respectful and sensitive.”

Check out the shoes below.
