In the video, Oprah Winfrey said, “I have nothing to do with weight loss gummies or diet pills and I don’t want you all taken advantage of by people misusing my 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.”
Winfrey is a known partner of WW International. The company was formerly known as Weight Watchers. They were into making weight loss products.
