After Katy Perry’s latest shoe design came under fire when people noticed that they resemble blackface, the shoes are reportedly being removed from store shelves.

The 34-year-old singer’s shoes called the “Rue Face Slip-On Loafers” and the high-heeled version called “Ora Face Block Heel Sandal” were being sold by Dilliard’s and Walmart, according to TMZ Monday.

Check out a picture of the shoes here posted on social media designed by Perry.

One comes in black the other in beige. The features on both include two blue eyes, a beige colored nose and large red lips.

The shoes raised eyebrows and even singer Masika Kalysha noticed them and said, “So we just gonna let Katy Perry slide?”

Sources close to Perry said the shoes are part of a larger design line and were never meant to be offensive.

“In order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes,” the insider shared.

The news comes on the heels of critics slamming the “Dark Horse” hitmaker’s performance on social media Sunday night for her tribute to Dolly Parton at the Grammy Awards, alongside others stars like Kasey Musgraves and Miley Cyrus.

    Perry might just now be drummed out of Hollywood. Don’t head Tennessee’s way. You will not be welcome here. And throw those butt ugly shoes away, unless they are now exhibit A in the hall of stupid.

    lol, I would never wear that, I think it’s childish that people see blackface in anything now. But, that’s what you get Katy! You think you stand on a pedestal and can do no wrong, but the left eats it’s own!

    Today you can not win for loosing. If he shoe line only had white shoes or light tab=n shoes someone would have bitched saying she left out black shoes to offend black people. There is a lot of differences in a BLACK SHOE and a BLACK FACE shoe! These people that keep jumping of every offensive bandwagon are one day going to look like FOOLS!
