The Kardashians Might Be Reported To FTC For ‘Deceptive Marketing’
First things first, here’s Kim Kardashian twerking in a pool in case you want to teach your kids where tsunamis come from. It’s important to have visual aids.
Now here’s the other stuff I was going to talk about if you even make it this far down, and it’s entirely cool if you don’t. I’m just trying to look busy. Don’t even worry about it. Page Six reports:
A legal letter from Truth in Advertising Inc. was sent to Kris Jenner and her lawyer saying, “We have found that members of the Kardashian/Jenner family are engaged in deceptive marketing campaigns.” Jenner manages the careers of her children.
The watchdogs decided to pursue action after reviewing the Instagram accounts of Kim, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian, plus Kylie and Kendall Jenner, “and found a plethora of posts that do not clearly or conspicuously disclose their relationships with the companies being promoted in the posts as is required by federal law.”
The letter lists 27 companies — including Puma, Calvin Klein, JetSmarter, Fit Tea, Estée Lauder and Karl Lagerfeld — believed to be paying the big-bottomed brood.
Truth in Advertising Inc. vows to notify the Federal Trade Commission by Wednesday unless the issues “are fully corrected.”
While that sounds deliciously ominous, Kris Jenner turning into a giant serpent and darkening the skies also sounds ominous, so I hope you assholes know what you’re doing. But if you are going to go through with this, may I suggest starting with what the hell happened to Khloe Kardashian’s arm? That seems like the real issue if you want my opinion, and you probably shouldn’t. I’m going to advise against that.
