What’s in a name? Apparently a lot of offended customers, if said name is Celebutard!
Sephora has been selling "Celebutard" lipstick from Kat Von D's Painted Love line, and has received a plethora of complaints from organizations like Down Syndrome Uprising, Family Member, Inclusion BC, and All About Developmental Disabilities about the insensitive name choice.
"Celebutard" is apparently a mashup of the words "celebrity" and "retard," which has prompted major concern from many customers.
Kim Stagliano, managing editor of Age of Autism, voiced the following:
