Following a public finger-wagging from an advertising watchdog group, the Kardashians have seemingly cleaned up their shady practice of not labeling sponsored posts as ads so as not to be investigated by the Federal Trade Commission.
A letter from the nonprofit organization Truth In Advertising called out the spawn of Kris Jenner for over 100 instances of essentially deceiving the public by not clearly indicating that they were paid for product placements.
The family lawyer must have sent around a memo because recent posts from Kim, Kourtney, Kylie and Khloe (Kendall is above this shit) all include the tag “#ad” indicating that received thousands of dollars to act like they drink laxative tea.
Look at them, following rules! Only time will tell if these displays of somewhat honest business practices will stick or if they’re just playing along now while the story is still hot.
The Kardashian krackdown follows a report that the FTC is planning on getting tougher about sponsored content for all the C-list actors, reality stars and Instagram celebrities out there.
