Kardashian - Kardashians Considering Legal Action Over Car Advert

The Kardashian sisters have threatened to take legal action over a "vile and offensive" car advert which appears to feature caricatures of the stars bound and gagged.

An animated promo for the Ford Motor Company in India was leaked online on Friday night (22Mar13), and features an image of characters who look like Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian tied up in the trunk of a yellow Figo vehicle.

Another caricature, which resembles the sisters' reality Tv rival Paris Hilton, is seated in the front of the car winking at the cameras.

Executives at Ford subsequently apologised for the image, created by the JWT India advertising agency and run with the tag-line "Leave your worries behind with the Figo's extra-large boot", but now a representative for the Kardashians has revealed the sisters are considering legal action.

An attorney representing the Kardashian family tells E! News, "(The sisters) do not take this lightly and they are exploring all of their legal options...

"The 'leave your worries behind' Ford ads are disgusting, vile and offensive to all women. It is unacceptable that Ford would align itself with an ad agency that would so carelessly release these ads."
