Karen keeps Karen’ing and its starting to backfire. LAFACE Skincare CEO Lisa Alexander lost a partnership with Birchbox for her recent -seemingly racist – behavior. More inside…
Karen is just going to Karen in 2020.
Lisa Alexander – CEO and founder of LFACE skincare company – was captured on video doing THEEE most. She pulled up on a man who writing “Black Lives Matter” in chalk on his own property in San Francisco. She claims he was defacing property and committing a crime since he was tagging a wall that was on private property. Turns out, the man actually LIVED there. During their interaction, Lisa told the man he was in the wrong because he was defacing property that he didn’t own. What she didn’t know is that the man actually lived there. And does own it. Check it:
 
A white couple call the police on me, a person of color, for stencilling a #BLM chalk message on my own front retaining wall. “Karen” lies and says she knows that I don’t live in my own house, because she knows the person who lives here. #blacklivesmatter pic.twitter.com/rOpHvKVwgP

“A white couple call the police on me, a person of color, for stencilling a #BLM chalk message on my own front retaining wall. “Karen” lies and says she knows that I don’t live in my own house, because she knows the person who lives here. #blacklivesmatter,” the man she was racial profiling tweeted. 
So, it was impossible for this man to live at the residence? You noticed she never asked and quickly lied about knowing who lived there.
It didn’t take long for Lisa to feel the wrath of being racist. She quickly shut down her website and social media pages in the wake of the scandal. Then, Birchbox replied to users on Instagram to clarify that they cut ties with LAFACE. Womp.
“There is absolutely no space at Birchbox for racism, and we condemn the actions of Lisa Alexander. We have not sampled the LAFACE brand in boxes in several years and, as a result of the CEO’s actions, have officially cut ties with them. We’ve removed their products from our online shop and will not be working with them again in the future.”

Oh, Karen…
Then, she apologized: “I want to apologize directly to Mr. Juanillo,’ Lisa said in a statement. ‘There are not enough words to describe how truly sorry I am for being disrespectful to him last Tuesday when I made the decision to question him about what he was doing in front of his home. I should have minded my own business,” she added.
Yes, Karen,you should have. Mind ya business.
