Kat Von D came out with a particular lipstick that that didn’t sit well with some parents.
The lipstick by the celebrity tattoo artist called “Celebutard” was pulled from Sephora shelves after parents of children with developmental issues put their foot down.
“People with disabilities are the last to benefit from what some might call ‘political correctness,’ and what I would call basic human decency. Retard is still bandied about,” says Kim Stagliano, managing editor at Age of Autism, in the HuffPost Style blog.
The popular makeup and beauty chain issued a statement saying, “It has come to our attention that the name of one shade of a lipstick we carry has caused offense to some of our clients and others. We are deeply sorry for that, and we have ceased sale of that shade both in our stores and online.”
But Kat doesn’t appear to be apologetic about the matter, tweeting, “At the end of the day, it’s just a f – – – – – – lipstick,” before removing the tweet.
