Her name or position in the company has yet to be revealed

Jerrod Blandino, who founded the cosmetics brand Too Faced, fired his own sister after she made negative comments about beauty blogger Nikkie de Jager, who came out as transgender on YouTube last week.

“Transgender, huh? That’s not the only thing she’s been LYING about,” Blandino’s sister, who calls herself “Dani California” on Instagram, wrote. In response, outraged followers called for LGBT allies to boycott Too Faced.

But before they could do so, Blandino announced his sister was “no longer with 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…Let it be known that I am truly shocked and disgusted to my core at her recent actions,” Blandino said in a statement.

Blandino also affirmed his support for de Jager and other transgender individuals.

“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,” he said.

In a more recent post, Blandino’s sister said she has no problem with transgender people, only with people who “lie to hurt others.”
