The trolling is strong with this Reno bakery!

You may remember when Dominique Ansel created the Cronut that made people everywhere flock to his New York shop… well, a Reno, Nevada bakery was inspired to make their own!

The Washington Redskins Are REFUSING To Change Their Team Name Even After Today’s Landmark Ruling! Read Their Official Statement HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzFootballNFLGIFs

redskins edit

C’mon, Washington! Could you BE any more stubborn?!?

It seems NOTHING can convince Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, to change his team’s terribly offensive name.

Not only are millions of Americans calling on the NFL squad to swap their name for something else, today the US Patent and Trademark Office canceled ALL of the Redskins’ trademarks after finding the name to be disparaging to Native Americans.

But the organization announced soon after that they will not do away with the well-known name and that today’s decision will have ZERO effect at all on their team!

Blugh!

Their arguments for why they want to keep calling themselves the Redskins are pretty shocking.

You can read the team’s entire official statement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersFood

Hershey is NOT happy with some pot-filled parodies of their candies floating around Colorado!

Whoa dude! This is totally not chill at all!

Hershey has filed a trademark lawsuit against a Colorado-based medical marijuana company called Tincture Belle, which is known for making edible treats packed with sticky icky!

So what exactly is the issue? Well, Tincture Belle's weed-filled goodies are pretty much just knock-offs of classic candy bars like Almond Joy and Butterfinger! Except these ones are cleverly named Ganja Joy and Buddafinger!

Oh, and did we mention they're filled with weed??

Disney Investigating Deadmau5 For Kidnapping Mickey? Wait, WHAT?!

disney deadmau5 trademark inquiry mouse head logo

We know what you're thinking, but this doesn't seem to be an April Fools' Prank at all!

According to reports that came out hours before the prank-themed holiday even began, Disney is throwing serious shade at one of the biggest DJs around.

Late last week the trajillion dollar company's lawyers notified the U.S. Trademark Office that they were looking into Deadmau5's trademarked mouse head (not literally, LOLz), presumably because it looks so much like their portrait of the super-iconic Mickey Mouse.

The Legal Heat Is REAL For The Kardashians! Learn Why The Khroma Lawsuit Just Won't Go Away!

The Kardashian sisters are still involved in the Khroma Beauty lawsuit -- but they want out!

Looks like “Khroma Beauty” has come back to haunt the Kardashians one more time!

Back in 2012, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian launched their low-priced Khroma Beauty makeup line. Upon launch, they were dragged into MULTIPLE legal battles over the name “Khroma”. One complaint was from Chroma, a high-end makeup line, and the other from Kroma, a makeup line who trademarked the name "Kroma" before "Khroma" came along.

After trying to keep the name for about a year, the Kardashian ladies finally gave up and changed the name of their beauty products to Kardashian Cosmetics.

Problem solved!

Or so they thought…

But Lee Tillett, the woman behind the Kroma trademark lawsuit, can’t seem to let things go.

She’s now trying to sue the Kardashians for

Is That Anne Hathaway Or Is That Her Wax Figure?! The Actress Gets The Wax Treatment At Madame Tussauds!

anne hathaway wax figure creepy so life like

Anne Hathaway has been memorialized in wax and will live on for centuries now!

The people over at Madame Tussauds have done it again! Isn't it creepy, yet totally amazing how lifelike her wax figure looks?!

The Oscar award-winning actress' waxy counterpart made her debut in Hollywood on Thursday!

A flawless figure like that must've taken a while to craft and make perfect! Apparently it took 20 artists three months to finish Anne's wax figure at the pretty little sum of $300,000.

We seriously can't get over how identical they both look. The artists even perfected her million dollar trademark smile!

AH-Mazing!
