Amid the college admissions cheating scandal that involves the daughter of “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin, Sephora has ended its partnership with Olivia Jade Giannulli.
The 19-year-old USC freshman is in hot water as prosecutors allege her parents, Loughlin and fashioner designer Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 to have her and her sister labeled as crew-team recruits at the University of Southern California, even though neither is a rower.
In a statement to Business Insider on Thursday, the beauty retailer said, “After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately.”
Giannulli was both a collaborator and paid influencer with Sephora, releasing a bronzing powder palette with the retailer back in December 2018, InStyle reports.
The $28, six-color Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette earlier was listed out of stock but now the product has been completely removed from the product page
Comments KRON4 obtained before the page was deleted include:
“I bought this in hopes it would help me get into college. Didn’t work. I guess I need $500,000 and no brains,” one person commented in a one-star review.
“Sephora — as a RedMember, you either support your customers who are honest & faithful, who save to buy, OR support cheating Hollywood who clearly do not need the $ and have no boundaries with morals… Shame,” another person wrote alongside a one-star review.
“Stop supporting this cheater – you have millions of customers who get into college through hard work,” another person said with another one-star review.
There were nearly 200 one-star reviews on Sephora’s listing page for Giannulli’s product, most of which were posted in recent days following news of the nationwide scandal.
