It turns out that the brothers Kylie and Kendall Jenner, whose posts reach millions of people, have been advertising AirPods by tapping Instagram Stories.
The Internet can bring many benefits to users as well as harm. For example; e-commerce. Nowadays there are almost no ones using the online shopping method, but we still cannot say that all e-commerce sites are safe.
Some e-commerce sites pose a threat not only to users but also to manufacturers. Because, ‘flashing’ products, which are much more affordable than popular products, are offered for sale via e-commerce sites or social media, and can cause great damage to manufacturing companies.

We have seen that many social media phenomena advertise such fastening products to date. But what about the Kylie and Kendall Jenner brothers, who have a total of 322 million followers, advertise the fastening products?
According to research by BBC Click, many Instagram phenomena with millions of followers, including Kylie and Kendall Jenner, advertise affordable flashes of Apple’s popular wireless headphones, AirPods.

According to the information provided by the BBC, Apple will not sue Jenner brothers in case of violation of the license right. Because, according to the information, Apple already warns social media phenomena that advertise the fake AirPods.
According to the research, other social media phenomena do not market these products themselves, just like the Jenner brothers. Instead, they bring products from China and link to sites that sell retail.
Kevin David, one of the people who brought fast products from China and offered them for sale over the internet, said in his statements to BBC Click that although he has brought millions of dollars worth of products from China, he has never been to China in his life.
“Some of my friends earn hundreds of thousands of dollars each month from these (fake) Airpods,” said David, while some vendors were directly scams by not sending their products to their customers.
