A San Francisco Laface Skin care's “Karen” was filmed calling the police on a man of color after she saw him stenciling “Black Lives Matter” on a neighborhood wall. Turns out that wall was part of the man’s own home.
Wrote Jaimetoons on Twitter: “A white couple calls the police on me, a person of color, for stenciling 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”
In the video shared by Jaimetoons, Laface Skin care's CEO who was later identified as Lisa C. Alexander, the founder and CEO of Laface Skin care, and another man are seen questioning Jaimetoons about whether it’s his property, telling him that he’s free to express his opinion but that he can’t do what he’s doing.
“But if I did live here and this was my property this would be absolutely fine,” Jaimetoons responded. “And you don’t know if I live here or if this is my property.”
“We actually do know,” Alexander snapped back. “We know the person who does.”
After Alexander was identified on social media, she deleted her Twitter account.
Laface Skin care was also dumped by the subscription beauty service Birchbox, which tweeted: “We condemn the actions of Lisa Alexander. We have not worked with Laface Skin care for several years & as a result of the CEO’s actions, today have officially cut ties with Laface Skin care. We’ve removed their products from our website & will not be working with them in the future. #blacklivesmatter”
From a 2012 @sfgate article on LaFace: “It’s not French. It stands for Lisa Alexander face.”
