Teens accused of using makeup for blackface at Boston Sephora

A group of teenage girls were caught on camera allegedly testing dark makeup to do blackface inside a Boston Sephora, with a staffer slamming their chaperone over the “incredibly offensive” act.

The group of three girls were seen in a viral TikTok video trying the makeup testers at the Sephora store in the Prudential Center, with two of them covering their faces with cosmetics meant for darker skin tones.

Temi Ojora, a University of Southern California track and field athlete who filmed the girls in the now-private video, described the scene as “genuinely so disgusted and disturbed.” 

“These group of teenage girls and their mothers come in and go to the makeup section to use the samples for blackface whilst giggling and making animal sounds,” Ojora wrote.

“This is the stuff that ruins jobs, college acceptances, let alone how incredibly offensive this is,” the staffer says.

The chaperone walks off, appearing to dismiss the employee. Ojora claimed that afterwards, the chaperone and one of the girls confronted her and asked her to delete the video.

The adult chaperone and the three girls have not been publicly identified.

Sephora condemned the group’s behavior, noting that they were told to leave the store for their intolerable behavior.

“We are extremely disappointed by the behavior of these shoppers at our Prudential Center location, and as such, they were asked to leave our premises,” the company said in a statement. “Under no circumstance is this type of behavior tolerated at Sephora.”

The Boston store did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

The incident in Boston comes amid the “Sephora kids” craze on TikTok catching teens and pre-teens ransacking beauty stores and bullying staff members with “mean girl antics.”

Employees for the beauty chains have also spoken out about dealing with the young customers, accusing them of purposely messing up the stores and makeup displays.
