For all you ladies out there……Have you heard of a lipstick called Celebutard? If so, you won’t hear about it anymore because Sephora, who produced this lipstick shade with tattoo artist Kat Von D, is pulling it off its shelves (in stores and online). Why? Because over 1,100 people signed an online petition calling Sephora to withdraw the product citing the name is offensive to those with disabilities and especially those with developmental disabilities.
Although Sephora apologized and immediately removed this shade of lipstick from the line, Kat Von D appeared to make light of the uproar, supposedly tweeting “At the end of the day, it’s just a f— lipstick,” before deleting the comment. Hmmmm.
