Just days after Fenty Beauty announced three new Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter shades, Rihanna's beauty line recalled one of the items after complaints from some users that the name was offensive.
The three highlighter shades announced on Saturday included Afternoon Snack/Mo' Hunny, #PENNY4UTHOTS and a third named Geisha Chic Hunny.
According to a Reddit post, a user said that Fenty sent her a direct message "about Geisha Chic after I left a comment on her post." Asked about the comment, a Fenty Beauty spokesperson tells Billboard, "the following message was sent by Fenty Beauty to commenters on Instagram in relation to the product in question -- We hear you, we have pulled the product until it can be renamed. We wanted to personally apologize. Thank you so much for educating us."
