Sephora Pulls Kat Von D Lipstick from Shelves Over Questionable Name
Don’t expect to see Kat Von D‘s ‘Celebutard’ lipstick at Sephora.
The tattoo artist’s lipstick line,Painted Love, includes shades called ‘Underage Red,’ and ‘Backstage Bambi.’ However, parents with children who have developmental issues found the lipstick ‘Celebutard’ to be offensive and insulting.
“People with disabilities are the last to benefit from what some might call ‘political correctness,’ and what I would call basic human decency,” says Kim Stagliano, managing editor at Age of Autism, in the HuffingtonPost Style blog. “Retard is still bandied about.”
Kat Von D tweeted then deleted her thoughts on the controversial lipstick. She wrote, “At the end of the day, it’s just a f—— lipstick,” before deleting the Tweet.
