According to the screenshot shared by Hanks, the advertisement depicted the actor as a user of the product Cannapro CBD.
What’s more, Oz, 59, added that he is “not involved with any cannabis companies.”
In July 2019, the Sully actor was pulled into a phoney endorsement for Cali Naturals, another CBD product.
Fans of the actor took to Instagram to lash out at the company for using the legend in their fake ads.
“This is false and an intentional hoax. I’ve never said this and would never make such an endorsement. Come on, man! Hanx!” he posted on Instagram.
The ad made its way around social media, which featured a picture of him and a quote attributed to him saying, “The advances Doctor Oz has made in the CBD industry are remarkable. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t had the chance to try it out for myself. After Using (The Company) for two weeks I was already feeling like a new me.”
Of course of few people are making sure the public knows there is some good CBD products so don’t attack the whole industry, “I mean CBD does have amazing benefits.. jus sayin. ” someone posted.
Of course, right away it seems a little weird Tom Hanks would endorse a CBD product, even weirder it would be one connected to Dr. Oz.
“Wow people just want to get rich using celebrities SMH,” one person wrote.
The greatest part is even Katie Couric commented on the post, saying, “Yes and I never endorsed any wrinkle cream although I could probably use some,” at the end she included #ridiculous
“I’ve never said this and would never make such an endorsement. Come on, man!”
In a definitive statement, Hanks said he “would never” say anything of the sort.
Tom Hanks has condemned a promotion for a CBD company that includes a fake endorsement from him as an “intentional hoax”.
In July 2019, Hanks called out a similar online advertisement, which quoted him as praising advances made in the CBD industry.
It included a photograph of him taken at the 2015 Outfest Legacy Awards in California, in addition to a quotation that he claims he never said.
Dr Mehmet Oz, a cardiac surgeon and host of daytime talk show The Dr Oz Show, also denied any involvement with CBD companies.
“The advances Doctor Oz has made in the CBD industry are remarkable,” the falsified citation reads. “I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t had the chance to try it out for myself.”
