Mary Byrne has hit out at a diet pill company for using her image to promote their products.
The singer, who appeared on Operation Transformation a few years ago and adopted healthier lifestyle habits, warned her followers that she does not – nor ever has – used the supplement.
Taking to social media, she said, “Hi everybody, I’ve had a lot of messages today about an ad doing the rounds with my picture before and after of weight loss and claiming it’s from some dietary Keto supplement.
“If they need to steal peoples photos who have never taken it, to show it’s effectiveness, well it can’t be much use. So please don’t support these products or think that I took them or endorse them. I didn’t and I don’t!
“Healthy eating and lots of walking is how I’ve lost my weight, slow and steady, 8 stone over 4 years! Don’t be conned by these people, love Mary.”
Similarly, James Patrice’s image is also being used to lure people in.
Sharing his frustration, he said, “If anyone sees my image being used to promote a Keto diet pill, I have nothing to do with it. They’re using me jaysus image.
“I unfortunately think that it’s a scam as well, so don’t click into it, don’t look at it. I have reported it, so fingers crossed.”
This is a RANDOM one altogether, but if anyone sees my image being used to promote a Keto diet pill, I have nothing to do with it. They’re using me jaysus image 😭 pic.twitter.com/JTXKlD8Gup
