The Kardashian-Jenner family pushes all kinds of products through their Instagram channels—watches, gummy bear hair vitamins, laxative teas, you name it.
But by far the strangest and most controversial Instagram influencer advertisement comes by the way of Kim Kardashian, who back in 2015 got in trouble with the FDA for posting about a prescription morning sickness pill without listing the side effects. Kardashian just posted about the drug again in a paid endorsement, but this time there’s a whole lot more in the caption.
#Ad #DYK 4 million babies are born each year in the US. That means a lot of my US followers are mommies2B who could have morning sickness like I did! I want to share what helped me: Diclegis® (doxylamine succinate/pyridoxine HCl), the only FDA-approved medication for morning sickness when diet & lifestyle changes fail. My doctor assured me that it’s safe & effective for mom & baby. It’s also easy to recognize – it has the cutest pregnant lady on it! #DontSufferinSilence you’re not alone!

‘Wonder Woman’ Might Be The First Comic Book Nominated For Best Picture
There have been 537 films nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and 89 winners. None of these have ever been a movie based on a comic book. Of these, only a small percentage of nominees have even been science fiction and fantasy films. And most of these nominees came after 2009, when the Academy expanded the category to include up to 10 movies.

For the last eight years, a number of genre films that would have been unheard of as Best Picture nominees in the previous decades have made the list: District 9, Avatar, Inception, Gravity, Her, Mad Max: Fury Road, Arrival. That’s a big jump in genre films even though classics like Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial all earned nods for Best Picture. (The biggest—and only—genre movie to win the award was The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in 2013.)
