Kardashian Sisters May Sue Ford Over Offensive Ad

Published

It may be time for Ford to put their money where their mouth is.

The automotive company fell into some hot water over an offensive ad for their Ford Figo “Leave Your Worries Behind” campaign – which featured a illustrated drawing of Paris Hilton driving a Figo …with Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian bound and gagged in the trunk.

The Kardashian sisters are seen bound and gagged in the back of a Ford Figo with Paris Hilton in the driver's seat in illustrations produced by an Indian ad agency

Ford claimed that the “unofficial”ad was done by an advertising team in India, and never meant to be released to the public (it advertises a vehicle that’s not even available to U.S.).  However, the ad still leaked onto the internet (along with several other equally offensive ads featuring different people).

In response to public outrage, Ford issued this apology:

“We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should have never happened. The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners. Together with our partners, we are reviewing approval and oversight processes to help ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”

However, the Kardashians are not accepting the apology.  In response to Ford’s statement, their family lawyer exclusively told omg! Insider:

“The ‘leave your worries behind’ Ford ads are disgusting, vile and offensive to all women.  It is unacceptable that Ford would align itself with an ad agency that would so carelessly release these ads.”

The Kardashian family lawyer added that the Kardashian sisters “do not take this lightly and are [currently] exploring all of their legal options.”

Do you think that Ford should have to pay up for the leaked ads?  Sound off below!

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
