The Kardashians/Jenners Have Been Accused Of 'Deceptive Marketing' On Their Instagrams
The Kardashians and Jenners are in a spot of trouble after not declaring their sponsored Instagram posts...
Sometimes when you look on your fave celeb's Instagram and find them genuinely promoting a product they adore, without even being paid to advertise it, it makes you want to go out right away and buy it, right?!
So it's not very nice to think that celebs are getting paid for posts and not mentioning they're being sponsored to post it...
Which is exactly the reason why the Kardashian/Jenner clan are possibly in a spot of trouble.
Apparently, Truth in Advertising Inc has sent momager Kris Jenner a legal letter, accusing six of the Kardashian/Jenners of "deceptive marketing campaigns" on their Instagram accounts.
According to Page Six, this letter focuses on the Instagram accounts of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian as well as Kylie and Kendall Jenner as being the ones accused of not playing by the rules when it comes to sponsored posts.
These lot are allegedly being paid by brands for Instagram posts, yet a number of these posts fail to declare that they're being paid for it by using #ad or #spon at the end of the post for example, which is actually against the law. Woops.
They found 27 companies that the famous family are currently working with, which include Puma, Karl Lagerfeld, Fit Tea, Calvin Klein and Estee Lauder.
And now, Truth in Advertising Inc is threatening to notify Federal Trade Commission by this Wednesday unless all the issues are "fully corrected".
So basically, the whole gang need to scan through all of their sponsored Insta posts and make sure their captions let their fans know they're been paid to endorse the brand or product.
