Thai TV celebrity Patcharasri “Karamare” Benjamach landed herself in hot water recently after making outrageous claims about a beauty supplement.
Before we get into the details, would you believe if a famous person says that a supplement will change the shape of your nose and eyelids as well as sharpen your features?
These claims were made by Patcharasri in a few videos shared online about a supplement called “Botera”. She even added that “Botera” is able to help people suffering from cancer and Covid-19.
On a more serious note, The Consumer Protection Division is set to interrogate the Thai celebrity on her false advertisement of health supplements after the Food And Drug Administration (FDA) filed a complaint on Monday (19 January 2021).
