Kardashians Sued

The Kardashian sisters are being sued for $75 million—all because they backed out of the pre-paid credit card endorsement they were originally slated for in fall 2010. After a slew of negative publicity headed up by consumer rights groups over the exorbitant rip-off-type hidden fees associated with the card, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney called it kwits. E! Online reports: "The lawsuit claims the famous trio signed a two-year agreement, and the company wants them to pay for bailing on their promise to endorse the shady card. A lawyer for RRG told E! that the terminated deal, plus the negative publicity that ensued, has "effectively put this company out of business." Well, we're all for keeping promises, but are torn on this one. Shouldn't a company that makes its money from ripping consumers off be put out of business? [Popeater]
