Beyoncé Accused Of Promoting H&M's Exploitative Tactics! Called To Use Her Power For Good!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionBeyonceH&M

When you choose to endorse a company, you have to take the good with the bad.

Beyoncé is the sexy face of H&M's summer campaign, but it looks like not all is kosher with the brand.

The Swedish clothing manufacturer has been accused of exploiting workers in its overseas factories, including in Bangladesh, where a recent factory collapse killed approximately 1,127 people.

Workers in other Asian countries, like Cambodia, also report unfair conditions. Srey Nit, a Cambodian worker at an H&M factory in the country says:

Kardashians Ready To Sue Over Sweatshop Scandal Claims

Did we call it or what?

The Kardashians are ready to throw down the legal gauntlet on Star magazine and the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights over those false slave labor claims.

Momager Kris Jenner is said to be furious at the human rights watchdog group and its executive director Charles Kernaghan for accusing them of such things especially since he had no proof.

Kris is also going after Star magazine for running the "Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal" report because it's libelous and should pay for any damage they caused to the brand's reputation.

The Kardashians Might Not Be Using Slave Labor After All

kardashian-sweatshop-scandal-might-not-use-slave-labor-after-all.jpg

The executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights is in damage control mode after Star magazine quoted him in their Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal article.

Charles Kernaghan says the gossip rag took his quotes out of context and doesn't have any proof the factories producing K-Dash by Kardashian, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle shoes are violating child labor laws or human rights.

Since the news broke this morning, Kris Jenner has denied the allegations insisting the factories are "strictly policed".

ShoeDazzle owner Robert Shapiro echoed the momager's statement, adding he and his team have "invested tons of time, energy and money to ensure the factories are operating in good standard".

So…how long until they file a defamation lawsuit???

Kardashians Sweatshop Scandal!

The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights has launched an investigation into the Kardashians for selling and endorsing products that are made using "slave labor" in foreign sweatshops.

The human rights group claims items from their QVC lines K-DASH by Kardashian and the Kris Jenner Kollection as well as ShoeDazzle, which Kim co-founded, are all made in China where workers are subjected to inhumane conditions.

Charles Kernaghan, executive director of the institute, says:

"The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people. Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights."

Kernaghan adds:

"You can’t talk during working hours. You can’t listen to music; you can’t stand up and stretch. You can’t even put your head up and look around, or you will be screamed at. If you get permission to use the toilet, you get four minutes. If you’re highly specialized, you cannot even go to the bathroom."

Awful!

We certainly hope this isn't true, then again we wouldn't be surprised if it was either.
