Cosmetics giant Max Factor has today announced its intention to sue president Donald John Trump.

The suit aledges that president Trump, who is widely known to be a long-time user of Max factor’s products, has caused lasting damage to the company’s reputation by his indiscriminate and poorly applied usage of Max Factor Facefinity foundation in shade “ cinnamon”.

We approached the company for comment. A senior company manager, who asked not to be named said “there’s getting a little cosmetic help and then there’s looking like RuPaul, Jeez”.
The lawyer in charge of the case Ms JD Lamont said “ when a famous celebrity is widely known to use a specific product there exists a duty of care whereby it must not be misused in such a way as to lead ordinary people to begin to doubt the product’s quality or efficacy”.

In 1974 a similar lawsuit brought by Gillette against the then president Richard Nixon alleging damage to its Right Guard antiperspirant brand was thwarted by the untimely end to his public life.

Ms Lamont refused to be drawn on the rumour of the possibility of a class action against Trump with TRESemme and Preparation H.

When questioned about the issue, an unofficial Whitehouse spokesperson said “ the president absolutely does not wear make up and if he did then it would be more like warm amber than cinnamon”

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
