Selling diet pills that don't really work is a hard game, and nobody is giving the Kardashians enough credit for pulling it off! Ha!
In fact, they're doing the opposite — the Kardashian sisters are being SUED for endorsing the over-the-counter diet pills!
They were just slapped with a $5 million class-action complaint yesterday by four (only four??) disgruntled customers who say they bought QuickTrim products due to the Kardashians’ telling them to on TV.
Here's what the filing says:
"[The pill is] marketed by the defendants as a clinically proven formula that will increase metabolism, curb appetite and promote weight loss. In reality, QuickTrim’s main ingredient is a large dose of caffeine, which the FDA has determined is not a safe or effective treatment for weight control. [Also, they] generally feature . . . photos of one or more of the Kardashian sisters in a bikini or other revealing attire.”
There is no magic diet pill, people!
So, what we're saying is this: shame on the Kardashians for promoting this, and shame on customers for falling for it!
Though, we're not sure how this deserves a millions-of-dollars settlement, but hey… that's for the court to decide!
