Kat Von D usually makes headlines for her
awful choices in men relationship troubles, not for her makeup! However, when the L.A. Ink star picked the names for her lipstick line, she wasn’t expecting to receive backlash over one of them, and now, Kat is defending one of the controversial names after the color was yanked from store shelves!
When Kat Von D was choosing the monikers for her lipstick line, Painted Love, she was definitely going for anything but ordinary with names such as Hellbent, Backstage Bambi and Underage Red. But it was the color named Celebutard that caused many folks to get angry at the reality star, and Sephora, the store which carries Von D’s lip line. However, the color, which some claim references the word retard, was quickly pulled off the shelves, and Sephora issued the following statement about the controversial name: “It has come to our attention that the name of one shade of lipstick we carry has caused offense to some of our clients and others. We are deeply sorry for that.”
Kat Von D, however, does not seem the least bit sorry about the name she chose for the color. Instead, Kat took to Twitter to defend the name, posting: “That name was inspired by the silliness of people who become famous for no reason outside attention seeking behavior. I think it’s a funny, lighthearted stab at how silly people can be. (Both the celebrity and those who subscribe to them).” But then she continued: “At the end of the day, it’s just a f–kin lipstick.”
