Who is Lisa C Alexander? Skin Care CEO from San Francisco
Lisa C Alexander “San Francisco Karen” who is the founder and CEO of LA Face, falsely accused a Filipino man of vandalism of stenciling in “Black Lives Matter” with yellow chalk on the retaining wall of his own house. Then she lies and says she knows the owner.
The video which was uploaded to Twitter by user @jaimetoons — later identified as San Francisco resident James Juanillo on Thursday, June 11th and has since racked up over seven million views.
“A white couple call the police on me, a person of color for stencilling a #BLM chalk message on my own front retaining wall,” Juanillo tweeted. “‘Karen’ lies and says she knows that I don’t live in my own house, because she knows the person who lives here.”

For those unfamiliar with the “Karen” meme, Dictionary.com defines the term as “a mocking slang term for an entitled, obnoxious, middle-aged white woman often asking to speak to retail and restaurant managers to voice complaints or make demands, and being a nagging, often divorced mother from Generation X.”
Lisa C Alexander and “Robert” can be seen asking Juanillo if he owns the property
In the video, Alexander and another person identified only as “Robert” can be seen asking Juanillo if he owns the property he’s writing the message on. Juanillo says, “If I did live here and it was my property, this would be absolutely fine? And you don’t know if I live here or if this is my property?”
Alexander is then dared to call the police, with Juanillo stating he “would be more than happy to talk to them.” He later told Storyful, “The police came and recognized me immediately as a resident of the house and left without getting out of their patrol car. I didn’t even show them my ID.”
Lisa and Robert Larkin are a Couple
Raymond James firm announced on Twitter that Robert Larkin has been given the boot. “Raymond James has zero tolerance for racism and discrimination of any kind,” the company said. “An inclusive workplace is fundamental to our culture, one in which people are free to bring their whole selves to their careers, and we expect our associates to conduct themselves appropriately inside and outside the workplace.

“After an investigation into the circumstances of a video alleging racism by one of our associates, we have concluded that the actions of he and his partner were inconsistent with our values, and the associate is no longer employed by Raymond James,” it added.
Her Twitter account under the name “Lisa C. Alexander” has since been deleted. She had however posted the following message seemingly acknowledging Juanillo owns the property: “I asked if he lived there because if he had said yes then everything would have been fine as it was his property. Being a good neighbor is important where everyone takes care of each other. It is too bad he took it in a different direction.”
The LA FACE website. Birchbox, a distributor of the LA FACE line, announced via Twitter it has “officially cut ties with” Alexander.
“We condemn the actions of Lisa Alexander,” Birchbox tweeted. “We have not worked with LA FACE for several years & as a result of the CEO’s actions, today have officially cut ties with them. We’ve removed their products from our website & will not be working with them in the future.”

Juanillo also noted that he wrote the message in removable chalk. “When did chalk art become ‘defacing’ property?” he tweeted. “Cause then I got some kindergarteners outside committing all kinds of crime right now that Karen can heroically bust!”

Lisa Alexander said on Sunday, June 14th she was “deeply sorry” for her “racist” actions when she told James Juanillo that he was illegally writing in chalk on a retaining wall because it was private property — which he actually owns.
