11 December 2017, 10:54
Jeffree Star described the leak as a "violation"
Jeffree Star was the victim of a data hack yesterday, after a member of staff at cosmetics store Sephora allegedly hacked into the YouTubers account and leaked sensitive information about his spending habits.
On Sunday, a twitter account allegedly belonging to a Sephora at staff member shared information about how many points Jeffree had accumulated at Sephora, as well as how much money he has spent there. According to the twitter account belonging to popular YouTube gossip channel Here For The Tea, the staff member attempted to sell the personal info too.
I’ve received tons of DMs about Jeffree Star and Sephora. This info was sent to me weeks ago by this employee along with his personal info which I have no interest in. This is a privacy issue and breach of @Sephora ‘s confidentiality agreement and this employee should not— Tea Time (@HereForTheTea2) December 10, 2017
"It's crazy how some people have NO respect," Jeffree tweeted on the December 10th, shortly after the leak became widely known. "Emplyeed of stores will look up our information and publicly tweet that information. This is unacceptable," he added.
It’s crazy how some people have NO respect, and employees of stores will look up our information and publicly tweet that information. This is absolutely unacceptable.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) December 10, 2017
I’m not saying everyone is evil, but there has to be boundaries and respect when you work for a store and a company. I want to feel safe shopping with a store, now I feel disgusted yet again.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) December 10, 2017
Apologising for the privacy breach, Sephora assured Jeffree that they "take... privacy concerns very seriously" and are "looking into" the indecent.
@JeffreeStar We're very sorry that this has happened and thank you for bringing this tweet to our attention. We take your privacy concerns very seriously and we are already looking into this. Thank you.— Sephora (@Sephora) December 10, 2017
This isn't the first time Jeffree Star has had personal or private information leaked
Just six months ago another Sephora employee was fired after they gained access to Jeffree Star's phone number and text him.
Despite feeling "violated" by the breach, Jeffree maintained that he still loved Sephora. "Just really upset with another employee crossing boundaries," he said.
I love Sephora, that's a given... just really upset with another employee crossing boundaries.— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) December 10, 2017
