Sephora has pulled a lipstick from its shelves after receiving complaints about the name.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Kat Von D’s “Celebutard” lipstick ushered in complaints from disability advocates and upset customers.

The shade is part of the line by the former “L.A. Ink” star that also includes lipsticks with names like “Lolita,” “Hellbent” and “Underage Red.”

Sephora released the following statement:

“It has come to our attention that the name of the one shade of a lipstick we carry has caused offense to some of our clients and others. We are deeply sorry for that,” said the statement according to The L.A. Times.

Kat Von D reportedly tweeted a comment to the controversy, but then deleted it.
