Who ever said diet pills would make you lose weight? Not Snooki.
After being hit with a lawsuit in 2013 by a Long Island woman who claims she was snookered (get it?) when the Jersey Shore star bragged about losing weight on the diet pill Zantrex, the pint-sized mom has fought back with a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
In court documents filed on Aug. 14, Snooki — real name Nicole Polizzi — says she never promised anyone who purchased the product that they would lose weight and states "there is no law which supports the proposition that a mere endorser such as Ms. Polizzi is liable for statements made by a product's advertiser."
Snooki, 26, claims she merely endorsed the product from her own personal results, she doesn't own a portion of the company or have any stake in the business.
"Instead, Plaintiff attempts to hold Ms. Polizzi liable for statements that the advertiser — and not Ms. Polizzi — made about the product," the court documents read.
"While endorsers clearly may face liability for their own false statements, they are not liable for statement made by advertisers."
