Katy Perry is facing backlash after shoes from her fashion line were said to include racist features.

The shoes - that also come in beige - have been removed from the likes of Walmart, but are still available on multiple on websites.

This happens after Gucci was recently under fire for selling a similar looking jumper, which was compared to blackface.

Sources close to Katy Perry have said that she never intended to be racist or offensive, but has decided to pull the line of shoes "in order to be respectful".
