Katy Perry facing backlash for “racist” shoe line

But it looks like she’s also in hot water over her fashion line.

According to Newsweek, Katy Perry is in trouble due to concerns… her fashion design may be racist!?

Whether it was the intention or not, they definitely look like a really bad “black face” impersonation.

The two offending styles, dubbed “Ora Face Block Heel Sandals” and “Rue Face Slip of Loafer” have been pulled from store shelves all over the country.
