Forever 21 sells shirt that looks suspiciously familiar to Kanye’s Life of Pablo Merch
In February at his Yeezy Season 3 event at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West debuted a new line of merch for his album The Life of Pablo. At the concert/fashion show, Kanye wore a long-sleeve t-shirt that said “I FEEL LIKE PABLO” on the front, and lyrics from his song “Ultralight Beam” arched on the back.
A shirt being sold by Forever 21 looks a lot like Kanye’s new shirts, GQ points out. The shirt is blank on the front, but the back’s arch design is notably similar. Forever 21’s version features the words “SIMON DE CYRENE FOR THE WORLD” on the back.
This would not be the first time the retail store has been accused of stealing designs. In 2013, artist Kelly Bastow accused Forever 21 of stealing her ideas off Tumblr, and putting it on their clothing designs.
Hopefully Forever 21 learns from these accusations, and come up with their own ideas.
