Winfrey recently denied endorsing any weight-loss product and warned her fans not to “fall victim to companies” that use her “name and image.”
Oprah took to Instagram on Sunday to clarify that she does not support “edible weight loss gummies” being sold online under her name.
“I have nothing to do with weight loss gummies or diet pills, and I don’t want people misusing my name to take advantage of you,” the former talk show host said in a short video.
She captioned the video she shared, “Fraud alert! Please do not purchase any weight loss gummies bearing my image or name.”
“There have been social media ads, emails, and fake websites going out and I want you to hear it straight from me, that I have nothing to do with them. Please don’t be taken advantage of and don’t give your personal information to them,” she added.
