Kardashian Sisters

We're Not Shameless

Snake Oil Peddlers!!!

EXCLUSIVE

The Kardashian sisters did NOT sell bogus diet pills to millions of gullible consumers ... they just coaxed 'em into buying them -- this according to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ.

Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian just filed their response to a $5 million lawsuit that accuses them of peddling lies to the public about the diet pill QuickTrim. The product's main ingredient is caffeine, which the FDA has decided is not an effective weight-loss drug.

But Kim & Ko. are now firing back -- claiming they're NOT the sellers of QuickTrim, they're just the pretty faces promoting the product ... so they shouldn't be held responsible for QuickTrim's lies.

The sisters claim there's currently no law that holds spokespeople accountable for false advertising -- and it should stay that way.

The Kardashians want their names dropped from the lawsuit.

According to that ad, THEY ARE endorsing the product as it works. As usual, the ****rashians are lying s***bags that need to be eradicated from the planet! They serve no purpose what so ever!!!

Any spokesperson should know what they are promoting before signing on the dotted line and running to the bank with the check. The Khardashians should have done some due dilligence.

They did this with intent to PURPOSELY target their fans and followers, and suck them into this product. So if they had motive ($$$) to trick their fans into purchasing this product, then yes, they should be held responsible.

What they did is reckless and wrong, so if they are going to intentionally promote a product that they do not use or that is not fool proof and is not what they claim it to be, then they are intentionally frauding their fans with their own SELF SERVING MOTIVE to Make Money Off Of Vulnerable People who believe their every word.

They should be held accountable, as should the company behind the brand.

The company hires you for a reason you mental b-itches. Their hoping your followers will bye what your endorsing. So yes I feel you are part of the problem.
I bet you don't have a problem accepting those checks from that company and I know for a fact you don't give a chit about your followers. Here's the Kartrashians laughing all the way to the bank.

ALL of the Kardashians and Kris Jenner have a reputation of misleading, and deceiving fans of theirs and viewers of their show. They lie, deceive, edit, fib, and fraud, for their own self serving motives to get rich. They do not really care about their fans, they think they are suckers and like to play up to the camera with their PR ploys, their head games and mind f viewers. Then sit back and laugh as they count their money and spend it on over indulgent items.

This is all a game to them. People are being sucked into their fake charade.
