Khloé Kardashian did an ad for an anti-migraine drug, raising questions about whether sponcon for medication is taking things too far https://t.co/MiaX4S1q14— BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) November 11, 2020
Is there anything the Kardashian / Jenner clan won’t promote to make a peso? The answer is no. Earlier this week Khloé Kardashian tweeted out a sponsored post about Nurtec ODT, a prescription medication for acute migraines manufactured by a drug company called Biohaven. Many online raised serious ethical concerns over reality stars and influencers sponsoring medications for Big Pharma, while others asked if this medication was a bronzer. You can see more reactions behind the cut.
A spokesperson for Khloé Kardashian told BuzzFeed News that they were not going to comment on the matter.
