Sissy says that she and her mom have reached out to the store for a full refund ($73 or almost P3,700) but that the manager is refusing until the earring is returned. A spokesperson from Claire's corporate headquarters told BuzzFeed News, however, that they are aware of the issue and that they "will take appropriate corrective action, including offering Sissy and her mom a full refund."

In an update, Sissy shares that the mask is gone, but that "there is still a piece of the mask's string stuck in [her] ear."
