(Newser) – Kim and Khloe Kardashian have been hawking diet product QuickTrim for a while now, but it may not actually work—or be safe. A law firm representing one unhappy QuickTrim user is reaching out to others, and is reportedly prepping a class action lawsuit against the Kardashians, the New York Post reports. The firm's website claims that QuickTrim's active ingredient is "a large dose of caffeine," which "the FDA has determined … is not safe or effective for weight loss." A physician also warned against QuickTrim in 2010, cautioning that it could actually lead to caffeine poisoning.

Let's see, I think I'll buy a diet product from a woman who is famous for her sex tape and her shameless pursuit of money. Her ass is two ax handles wide, but that's just bad photography... right? To bad her shyster father isn't around to defend her and make it a real family affair.

What? The Kardashians did something shifty for money and a diet product doesn't work? Double shocker.

I bet nobody will be liking Kim's big ass when she is just a poor girl with a big ass.
