For nearly two years, Amandine Pellissard has built a small notoriety thanks to its participation in the show Large families, life in XXL (TF1). This first media exposure with her husband Alexandre and their nine children pushed her to launch into social networks in parallel. And today, Amandine has become an influencer. A profession that seems nice in every way but which is not practiced without respecting a few rules. And the mother has understood this at her expense.
Indeed, Tuesday May 24, 2022, Amandine Pellissard confided that she was caught up by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Prevention (DGCCRF). She is accused of having made paid product placements without indicating the mention “#sponsored”, which is however mandatory to specify to Internet users that it is an advertisement. In story Instagram, Amandine took stock of her meeting a few hours earlier, acknowledging her mistake. However, she claims to have been a very long time “badly surrounded“and so, she would not have been aware of this law.
“I started my Instagram in July 2020 with our arrival in the first episode of Large families, and quickly, I was approached by an agency I had been with for over a year. During this year, all these things, I ignored them indeed these hashtags I did not put them on my posts. Today, I know, we learn every day, so I know how the regulations work“, she said.
If the people she spoke to were “very understanding” vis-à-vis her case, Amandine Pellissard still does not know if she will have to pay a fine. Anyway, she is delighted to see that her activity as an influencer is today “also framed“, with “true vigilance“His verdict is expected in the coming weeks,”even the next few months“.
