Herbalife “Members” Are Tired of Getting Bullied Over Their Herbalifestyle

Believers in the Herbalifestyle have sent out a press release demanding an end to the "lies and smears" that are getting in the way of their downline management and inventory unloading:

Herbalife (NYSE:HLF), a leading global nutrition company, announced today that dozens of independent Herbalife members and independent business owners will hold a press conference during the Herbalife Extravaganza in Chicago in order to take a stand against the continuing campaign of attacks and misinformation being waged by Bill Ackman and Pershing Square Capital Management. Thousands of Herbalife members from across North America are gathering this weekend to celebrate the positive impact Herbalife has had on their lives and in their communities.

"Members like me are under attack by a billionaire hedge fund manager who has embarked on an unprecedented effort to take down my way of life, and we want him to know that Herbalife members won't stand for it," said Silvia Muir, an Herbalife member from Palatine, IL who will be taking part in the press conference.

It gets worse.

"Bill Ackman has displayed a bald-faced hypocrisy in his sham support for Latinos," said Pablo Caicedo a member from Lincoln Park, IL who will also be taking part in the press conference. "As a Latino, I think it's important for the world to know the truth: that Bill Ackman is only interested in his own short-sighted financial goals and has a history of investing in companies that profited from the detention of undocumented immigrants. He is hardly a standard bearer for the Latino community."

"Herbalife has positively impacted my life and I have seen it positively impact the lives and health of consumers. It is for these reasons – and many more – that I am compelled to speak up – for myself, my family and my community," said Ana Bunay, a member from Skokie, IL, who will also take part in the press conference. "We are not going away, and neither are the hundreds of thousands of Herbalife members, customers and supporters across the U.S."

Of course Bill Ackman is interested in his short-sighted financial goals, that's how one becomes a billionaire as opposed to a multi-level marketer.

Felon and Twitter troll Sam Antar has a suggestion for Herbalife members: prayer and a sandwich board.

 

Can't hurt.
