The Kardashians threaten legal action against Ford over ad
Reported by E!
In response to a mock-up ad featuring a drawing of Paris Hilton in the front seat of a yellow Ford Figo with Khloé, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian tied up in the back, an attorney for the Kardashian family tells E! News that the sisters “do not take this lightly and they are exploring all of their legal options” against those responsible.
“The ‘leave your worries behind’ Ford ads are disgusting, vile and offensive to all women,” says the family’s lawyer. “It is unacceptable that Ford would align itself with an ad agency that would so carelessly release these ads.”
The ad, created by a team at JWT India, was never officially used—and it was for a car that isn’t available in the U.S.—but it ended up on the Internet anyway.
