Do you have any doubts about the detox products Kim Kardashian and his sisters put on their Instagram accounts? It is also the opinion of an American senator …

Kim Kardashian is in turmoil. Psalm’s mother , already under fire for supporting a convicted prisoner for four murders , is now accused of “misleading advertising . ” At the root of this attack is Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal. The American politician has indeed decided to tackle the “detox teas” and food substitutes often put on the networks by influencers by asking the Federal Trade Commission to open an investigation, explains OK! .

In its sights, brands like Fit Tea, Lyfe Tea or Flat Tummy Co. , which have already been seen on the social networks of Kardashian sisters. It is also to Kim that the Senator decided to address himself directly, as the Inquisitr website reports . And while he initially admits to her “strong influence with young women,” he then accuses her in his commercials of “assuming that these products are an integral part of achieving that level of fame and success.”

Richard Blumenthal refers to a particular publication, seen on Kim’s Instagram account in January, reports Inquisitr. You can see Kim pose with a shaker filled with a brown mixture by hand, next to diet products like dietary supplements. “These products, marketed for teenagers and young adults with the support of celebrities and social networks for weight loss and well-being, are at best ineffective, or at worst, dangerous,” he says. we read in a letter published by the politician. And this is not the first time the Kardashians have been accused of misleading advertising. In March, actress and activist Jameela Jamil accused Khloe of promoting food substitutes when she actually works with dieticians and personal trainers.
