The marijuana companies that use Clint Eastwood to sell CBD products are apparently unforgivable.
The 92-year-old actor has won his second lawsuit against online marketers who used his image without permission, according to Vanity Fair.
The latest verdict, handed down last week, gave Mr. Eastwood and Garrapata, the company that owns the rights to his image, $ 2 million in damages. The lawsuit alleges that a California-based marketing company, Norok Innovation, exploited Mr. Eastwood’s celebrity status for driving online traffic to a website that sells CBD products.
Manufactured news articles and manipulated search results made it look like Mr. Eastwood approved the products. The claim claimed that these were “products that he probably would not have been willing to recommend in the first place”;, according to the article.
It seems that Mr. Eastwood is ready for more fights, as similar lawsuits are pending against other marketing companies and the CBD companies themselves.
