Too Faced Founder Fired His Sister Over Transphobic Comment On NikkieTutorials
Imagine being fired from the company you’re working at, by your very own sibling. Well, this happened to Dani California, the sister of Too Faced Cosmetics’ founder, Jerrod Blandino.
Blandino recently fired his sister from working with the company due to transphobic comments she made about Dutch beauty guru, Nikkie Tutorials.
ICYMI, Nikkie Tutorials revealed that she’s transgender in a coming-out video.
“When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender.”
This prompted Dani California a.k.a. @makupprincess to change her Instagram bio into an unwarranted comment towards Nikkie Tutorials.
“Transgender, huh? That’s not the only thing she’s been LYING about.”
The transphobic Instagram bio was screenshotted and posted on Twitter. Nothing ever leaves the Internet.
Before this, Nikkie Tutorials alleged she was being blackmailed to reveal her gender identity in her coming out video.
In a statement posted on Too Faced’s official Twitter account, Jarrod Blandino revealed that he has fired his sister from the company.

“I would like to make sure it is understood that although I love my sister very much, the things she says or does have absolutely nothing to do with me and do not in any way reflect me, my opinions, thoughts, or feelings nor speak for me or Too Faced in any way shape or form.”
Blandino explained that he’d always stood for love, equality, and kindness in his life and everything he does. He apologized for the hurt his sister has caused and is truly shocked at her recent actions.
“She (Dani California) is no longer an employee of Too Faced.”
Like all of us, Blandino is proud of Nikkie Tutorials.
“I would like to say how proud I am of Nikkie Tutorials, and how inspired I am for her strength and sharing her beautiful truth with the world. I am sending all my love to her.”
As of now, Dani California has changed her IG bio to “Well God bless your sweet hearts.”
But not before it was revealed once again, that she’d changed it to “Lets be clear, I love trans people & dislike anyone who lies to hurt others! Period! But anyway…”
Too Faced has collaborated with Nikkie Tutorials to release an exclusive makeup collection, which featured an eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, eyeshadow primer, purple mascara, and loose glitter.
