Using corona virus fear to sell air purifier

Post by ChiChi2 » 8 months ago

Did anyone else see this today? Was very disappointed that Craig and Jessica used the current fear of the Corona virus to sell an air purifier. Air purifiers aren’t going to be effective according to the CDC. Anything to make a sell, I guess

I saw it. Was terrible using the virus to scare people into buying things.
What about the other day, them claiming the argon oil with CBD helps with the hosts pains. Didnt they rave that SHUNGITE relieved their aches ???

The bad thing is if they are making people think that the air purifier works to protect them people will get a false sense of security and might not take the actual measures to protect themselves and come down with the virus, that is horrible that they are doing this to sell an item.

Shungite bone broth bejeweled heating pads massagers the 10's machine and on and on. All magical.
It was mostly disgusting hearing them use this virus as a selling point. And this sale went on and on and on. Each time I clicked back they were still on it.

This is going WAY too far. It's unethical. They are also spreading lies for which they should be held accountable.

I cannot shop here.

It is so true-- air purifiers are built to filter out particulates. Dirt, smoke dust mites, stuff like that. They are not fine enough to filter out viruses. There is a type that uses UV and UA light bathing the filters to kill the virus but I don't believe these are available to the general public.
