Beauty Influencer Dropped By Sephora for Being a Conservative Files Defamation Lawsuit

Beauty influencer Amanda Ensing has filed a defamation lawsuit against the makeup giant Sephora after they very publicly cut ties with her for being a Christian conservative in January.

The makeup shop responded to liberal activists who were outraged that they would dare to work with a Republican by saying that she “shared content on social media that is not aligned with Sephora’s values around inclusivity.”

Ensing posts family friendly beauty content mixed with some posts about her Christian conservative views — such as her support for the Second Amendment.

“Thank you for reaching out and bringing this to our attention. We were made aware that Amanda Ensing, an influencer contracted through one of our external vendors’ campaigns, recently shared content on social media that is not aligned with Sephora’s values around inclusivity. As soon as we were informed, we made the decision to cease all programming with Amanda and will not be engaging her for future partnerships,” Sephora wrote in a response to a social media activist.

Conservative women quickly rallied by her side and began boycotting Sephora — but Ensing was soon banned from Twitter as leftist activists seemed to mass reported her account to silence her. Prior to being banned, the smart and brave beauty had approximately 1.4 million subscribers on YouTube and 1.4 million followers on Instagram.

Now, iconic free speech lawyer John Pierce has taken up her case and filed a lawsuit against Sephora on Thursday evening in Nashville.

“Like many powerful multi-billion dollar corporations that are bowing to the whims of the woke mob, Sephora apparently thought that its bottom line was best served by destroying the life of a law-abiding American simply because she has conservative political views,” Pierce told the Gateway Pundit. “This type of corporate bullying is despicable and cuts against the grain of America’s long-tradition of free speech and respect for differing political opinions. Unfortunately for Sephora, this time they picked the wrong target.”

“Ms. Ensing is intent on exposing cancel culture for what it is — a poisonous cancer that is destroying the norms of free speech and the fabric of America. Sephora and its leadership will be help accountable for globally defaming her,” Pierce continued. “No matter how long and hard the fight, Ms. Ensing will make an example out of Sephora that will serve to deter other massive corporations from thinking they can simply steamroll individuals and destroying their lives for the sake of pandering to a leftist, woke and un-American mob.”

The complaint, obtained by the Gateway Pundit, says that Sephora “made false and defamatory statements online about Ms. Ensing, exposing her to public hatred, ridicule, and contempt, and costing Ms. Ensing her business and brand as a social media beauty influencer.”
