Mike Huckabee Targets Meta With Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Ads for CBD Gummies | Delaware Business Court Insider (2024)

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has filed a lawsuit against Meta in Delaware federal court, claiming his name and image have been usedwithout permission to advertise CBD gummies on Facebook.

The lawsuit, filed July 1 by Poynter Law Group and Bellew LLC, alleges Meta profited from ads that falsely stated Huckabee—a conservative political commentator and former Republican presidential candidate—was struggling with health issues and using Fortin CBD products for his symptoms. The plaintiff alleges that multiple ads making similar claims were live and visible to Facebook users for a roughly two-month period earlier this year.
