The Kardashian kamp has landed in legal hot water again–this time with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, of all people.
According to the New York Daily News, New York state has threatened to sue Rich Soil, the t-shirt company owned by Khloe Kardashian‘s husband Lamar Odom, if it doesn’t stop selling the t-shirt at left.
The state has sent a letter to Rich Soil, demanding they halt all sale and advertising of the offending t-shirt, and disclose profits made. If the company fails to respond, they’ll be facing legal action.
As per the brand’s ‘about’ page, “Rich Soil uses the t-shirt as a vehicle to promote not just a brand but a movement that represents the creative spirit of all people.”
But apparently, the company’s designers were actually lacking in the creativity department because the t-shirt’s design is pretty much a direct rip-off of the state’s Pride of New York symbol, which was originally created to denote agricultural products grown in New York. Obviously, Cuomo doesn’t want to sully the good state of New York’s reputation with a Kardashian association. Could this be the end of [insert Kardashian sister's name] and [insert another Kardashian sister's name] Take New York?
And what’s more, this isn’t the only Rich Soil t-shirt that seems to have, ahem, taken inspiration from another established logo. Check out the brand’s RSNY t-shirt below. Looks a lot like YSL, no?
