On The Eve Of Their Diversity Day, Leslie Jones Slams Sephora For Allegedly Mistreating Her Makeup Artist
Leslie Jones has had it with Sephora.
The Saturday Night Live star blasted the retailer after her makeup artist, Lola, went to a Sephora in New York City and was allegedly treated so “bad” by a salesperson and manager that she was left in tears.
“I sent my makeup artist @LolasBeautyMark and my best friends wife to @Sephora 2103 Broadway store. she needed makeup and to learn how to apply,” Jones sounded off on Twitter. “My makeup artist just called in tears of how bad they treated her and my friends wife!! The salesperson and manager. SO NO MORE SEPHORA.”
Lola, an African American woman, has yet to comment on social media about the incident, but this is just the latest time that Sephora has been in hot water over their alleged mistreatment of women of color.
Back in April, Sza tweeted that while she was shopping at a Sephora in Calabasas, Calif., an employee she dubbed “Sandy Sephora” called security to make sure she wasn’t stealing. “We had a long talk,” the singer continued. “U have a blessed day Sandy.”
Sephora soon responded, tweeting back, “Hi, SZA. We’re sorry to hear about your experience at our Calabasas store and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We want to let you know we take complaints like this very seriously and are actively working with our teams to address the situation immediately.” Rihanna also sent the singer a gift card.
Earlier this month Sephora announced that it will close all of its stores across the country Wednesday for diversity training, so that all 16,000 of its employees can take part in workshops to help them understand its values, according to CBS Los Angeles.
That diversity training is occurring today. Seems like they have a lot to talk about!
