The company released a statement distancing itself from the racist woman who assaulted a teen at Reminisce neighborhood pool in Summerville, South Carolina, on June 24.

In a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle, skincare brand definitely said that after an investigation, Sebby-Strempel was terminated.

“In accordance with our policies and after assessing statements from law enforcement, this independent consultant is no longer affiliated with Rodan + Fields,” the company said.

According to The Seattle Times, a lawyer for the teens, Marvin Pendarvis, said:

“She obviously took a look at them and said they don’t belong there. She had no reason to single them out. They weren’t doing anything.” The teenager had been invited to the private community pool by a friend who lived in the neighborhood.

The video of the incident has been viewed more than 655,000 times on Facebook.

The teenager’s mother, Deanna RocQuermore, condemned the attack on her son at a news conference, WCSC reported.

“No child, including mine or anybody else’s, ever, ever deserves that type of abuse or treatment or to be struck not once, not twice but three times by someone that is upset because of the color of someone’s skin,” she said.

Sebby-Strempel was released from jail on $65,000 bail Tuesday, according to the Dorchester County Detention Center.
