Zac Efron And Netflix is tarnishing the good name of a health and wellness brand with its streaming series… according to a new lawsuit.
The actor and streaming giant “Down to Earth with Zac Efron” is being sued by a company called Down to Earth Organics, which claims the Netflix travel show is hurting his business.
According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, DTE claims that they closed the rights to “Down to Earth” for media and entertainment purposes prior to the premiere of Zac and Netflix’s own show.
DTE says the Netflix series, which follows Zac around the world to find healthy, sustainable ways to live, is trying to create a new “down to earth” wellness brand … and the company says That it is hurting their bottom line by misleading customers.
Instagram is waiting for your permission to load the media.
What’s more, DTE says the Netflix series’ advice on wellness has been “widely ridiculed” and pushing for “harmful false nutrition claims.” …and they’re not fans of Zac using the show to cross-promote the Nature Valley snack bar on social media, because DTE says they offer their own healthy snacks with the trademark.
DTE is going after Zac and Netflix for damages… and they want an injunction banning Zac and Netflix from infringing their “Down to Earth” trademark.
