If you’ve ever felt guilty about buying your favorite cookie, you might want to try buying your cookies off the internet.
The world’s most popular cookie-selling website is facing a massive legal fight over its cookie-buying practices.
According to BuzzFeed, the American Apparel Group, which owns the company, has accused Apple, Amazon and other major cookie sellers of making deceptive marketing tactics, and has filed a lawsuit against the sites and their advertisers.
The company also says the companies violated antitrust laws by allowing its customers to buy cookies without having to purchase a product from an online store.
In its complaint, Apple says that the companies have “deliberately targeted” consumers who buy their favorite cookies online, without disclosing to them that they are being offered cookies that they will not receive.
“We are confident that the FTC’s ruling will serve as a significant deterrent to online cookie vendors from engaging in deceptive marketing practices and will also encourage online retailers to cease their practice of selling and marketing cookies for their customers,” Apple wrote in its complaint.
The company’s complaint also says that Apple’s cookie-sales practices are “unconscionable” and “will not be tolerated by the public.”
“Apple, Amazon, and other online cookie retailers violate antitrust laws, which prohibit their products from being advertised as “free” or “free with” other terms, and they have violated antitrust law in order to profit off the online cookie market,” the company’s lawsuit reads.
The companies have until June 23 to respond to the complaint.
