Oprah and Dr. Oz -- Colon Ads Are a Load of Crap!

8/20/2009 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah and Dr. Oz Oprah Winfrey and her pal Dr. Oz are looking to kick a little ass over an Internet colon cleansing scheme.

The two daytime superstars have teamed up to fire off a lawsuit over a bunch of allegedly BS web ads for things like "Colon Pro Cleanse, Power Colon Cleanse, Colon Max [sic]" -- ads that feature Oprah and Oz's image, names and voices.

According to the suit, filed yesterday in NY Federal court, Oz and Op claim the company behind the ads are cashing in "on the false premise that [the products] have been tested or recommended by Miss Winfrey and/or Dr. Oz when they have not."

The O Squad also claims the colon offers usually "turn out to be credit card scams or other fraudulent schemes."

Oprah and Oz are suing the company for an unspecified amount of cash -- though the number is gonna be huge. They're also asking the judge to force the colon people to flush their ads down the drain ASAP.
