Kim Kardashian in hairy situtation; Reality star sued for false advertising on hair-removal product
The reality star is being sued by hair-removal product company Radiancy, claiming she's made false and misleading statements for their rival, the hair-removal company TRIA. TRIA is also named in the suit.
According to TheWrap, the suit says Kardashian made false statements about the product during multiple TV appearances and on her Twitter account. For example:
- Kardashian says she uses TRIA over her entire body. TRIA has said the product is not designed for full-body use as it may damage skin.
- Kardashian says using TRIA means "You'll never need razors or shaving cream again." But TRIA's instructions recommend using the product in addition to shaving.
- Kardashian Tweeted in Dec. 2010, she's "loving the results so far," although she'd only been shilling for the firm for a couple weeks. The product isn't designed to deliver results for at least 90 days.
This isn't the first time that Kardashian has faced problems with one of her business dealings. In 2010, she came under fire for the Kardashian Kard, a pre-paid card that carried sizable fees. The product was quickly yanked.
Perhaps she should just stick to her TV show.
