Kat Von D‘s lipstick was pulled from makeup retailer Sephora because of controversy. I’d hoped it was because people finally realized Kat Von D sucks and shouldn’t get money, but no. It’s because of the name of the shade, which is, “Celebutard.” More on the lipstick fury from USA Today:
The name, a term for a not-so-bright celebrity that references “retard,” is plain offensive, says Faith Bodnar, the executive director of Inclusion BC, a non-profit that promotes the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in community life.
“It should have never been on the shelves to begin with,” Bodnar told CTV News. “It’s degrading, and there’s no place for it.”
Kat Von D’s other shades have lovely names like, “Underage Red,” “Hellbent,” “Backstage Bambi” and “Lolita.”
“Celebutard” is being pulled from her line. Her response?
“At the end of the day, it’s just a f-cking lipstick.” Well, yeah, but at the end of the day, you’re lucky you even have a job, so maybe don’t be such a celebutard abou it. I’m sorry, that was bad.
What do you think? Is this political correctness gone too far, or is it appropriate?

Kat Von D announced on Twitter this week that she’s called off her enagement to Deadmau5 because I guess he cheated on her? Or so she claimed on Twitter. Well, Deadmau5 has now made his own statement – on Facebook, naturally – saying that he was never unfaithful to his former fiancée and in fact only “had relations” with another woman during a period in which they had broken up. That’s right – Deadmau5 played the Ross Gellar “We were on a break!” card.
From Joel’s (LOL) Facebook:
All i am saying on the matter:
Kat and I split in November and I moved back home to Toronto. During this time, while we were broken up, I did have relations with another woman. Following that, Kat and I reconciled and I acknowledged being intimate with another person while we were estranged.
We did move past those issues and I proposed to Kat in mid- December. At the end of June, it was clear that the relationship was not working and we mutually ended the engagement. I was not, at any point, unfaithful to Kat during our time together.
I don’t wish to go tit for tat with these kinds of pronouncements and don’t expect to comment further, but I do believe that those who have expressed concern deserve a more complete understanding of what transpired.
Hmm, not sure how I feel about that. They weren’t broken up all that long, and if you really love someone, the last thing you want to do after you’ve broken out is go out and fuck someone else. I mean, I know people do “rebounds” or whatever and the human psyche is delicate and strange, but come on. Maybe he’s telling the truth, but when you’re dealing with a woman who has been cheated on before, shit like that will get picked up on QUICK.
Ah well, fun while it lasted, I suppose?
Kat Von D just can’t catch a break, can she? First, she’s dumb enough to get with Jesse James besides knowing he was incapable of being faithful. Then she shacks up with Deadmau5 who has a dumb name, thinks proposing on Twitter is romantic and… is also a dirty cheater, apparently. You know what that means: no mermaid wedding! :(
Of course, we found all this out on Twitter (where else?) when Kat started airing Deadmau5 out yesterday (Wednesday) morning:
Well… okay. Can’t really say anything about that besides: girl, you need to stop with these nasty ass bros. You’re a boss tattoo artist and your make-up line is far better than I’d like to admit. You put eyeliner on better than anyone I’ve ever seen (LOL)! Wise up.
