Sephora's customers are passionately pushing the brand to sever ties with Olivia Jade Giannulli, Lori Loughlin's daughter, following the massive corruption scandal involving college students this week.
Giannulli, an influencer of Instagram and a beauty vlogger YouTube, launched her makeup palette with Sephora in December 2018 while she was a student at the University of Southern California. According to the Sephora website, the palette, which sells for $ 28 and seems to be out of print, was her "first-ever makeup collaboration."
Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $ 500,000 in bribes to Olivia Jade Giannulli (and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli) and the team. (None of the two girls participated in this sport, according to court documents.) The couple was part of about 40 people, including actress Felicity Huffman, also accused of bribery.
After the announcement of the scandal, Sephora's customers expressed their anger in the product critical section of the Olivia Jade X Sephora palette. Web page. Some people even threatened to boycott the brand if it did not remove the product from its website.
"Will not be affiliated with negative cheaters; throw out all my present Sephora; remove this affiliation with Olivia jade before you buy more, "wrote a speaker.
Another wrote, "Why is this product still on your website? If that does not happen quickly, I will never spend a cent on Sephora. His previous comments about just going to college to party were pretty ridiculous. Bad luck Sephora always has this on your site. Take it off now!
One person wrote that Olivia Jade and her family "should be ashamed of themselves," adding, "I'll never do Sephora's business again unless you drop it like a hot potato." .
"Sephora, if you had half-cut mind, you would cut all ties with this family and throw those palettes into the basket of discounts," read another comment. "What an embarrassment."
People also expressed their disappointment with Sephora on Twitter.
Sephora did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Olivia Jade Giannulli also faced negative reactions on Instagram, leaving people hordes of negative comments on paid publications that hint at her status as a student at the university. Comments on recent photos have apparently been disabled.
According to Variety, the influencer could lose other brand sponsorship deals as a result of the scandal. It is unclear whether she was fully aware of the acts alleged against her parents. However, as USA Today reports, court documents indicate that her father sent an "action picture" of her on a rower to complete the claims that she was a barrister.
HuffPost has contacted a representative of Giannulli and will update it accordingly.
