Kim Kardashian is in a mountain of trouble after she and her sisters apparently lied when they claimed that they were able to attain their million-dollar physiques from a diet pill named QucikTrim, this according to a five million dollar lawsuit.
The plaintiffs are seething at Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe for claiming that they lost weight by consistently taking QuickTrim, whose main ingredient is caffeine.
“The FDA determined [caffeine] is not safe or effective treatment for weight control.”
According to TMZ, the suit, filed in NY by Bursor & Fisher, the Kardashians fed lies to the public through commercials, magazines, and social media since 2009.
Kim went on Twitter and said, “Our QuickTrim cleanse will be massive! Khloe has already lost so much weight.”
But on YouTube, several QuickTrim costumers claimed that they had seemingly scary side effects, from uncontrolled diarrhea to heart palpitations. Check out these women’s testimonials and judge for yourself:
The plaintiffs claim they would NEVER have purchased the QuickTrim products if they would have known the truth … and claim the Kardashian testimonials were completely unsubstantiated.
Now, the Kardashians, QuickTrim, and various companies that sold the products are being sued for more than $5 million in damages.
Many celebrities endorse products that they claim they use exclusively, leaving consumers questioning whether or not they can trust the celeb endorser. But this is why most companies use the fine-print disclaimers at the bottom of commercials to keep them out courtrooms, battling a lawsuit like this one.
Either way, people have to use their own discretion whenever purchasing any product, but at the same time, no product should ever harm the consumer.
No word has been released from the Kardashian Camp.
