Katy Perry and her brand-management company have issued a statement following concerns that some of her footwear items appear to resemble blackface. Perry, along with Global Brands Group, say they were “saddened” upon learning of the backlash to their fashion line, and confirmed the shoes were removed from sale.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Rue and The Ora were part of a collection that was released last summer in 9 different colorways (black, blue, gold, graphite, lead, nude, pink, red, silver) and envisioned as a nod to modern art and surrealism,” reads a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “I was saddened when it was brought to my attention that it was being compared to painful images reminiscent of blackface. Our intention was never to inflict any pain. We have immediately removed them from Katy Perry Collections.”
