She's baaaaack.

Satirical fashion blogger Rachel Kane's HIGHlarious website WTForever21.com is back in business after Forever 21 threatened to sue her for expressing her First Amendment rights.

Rachel announced the victory on Tuesday with a celebratory new entry:

Dear Lovers of Gnarly Fashion:

After two legally baseless cease-and-desist letters from Forever 21, two painstakingly researched responses, and zero substantive replies from Forever 21′s legal team, I have no choice but to interpret the company’s non-responsiveness as an admission that my blog, WTForever21.com, does not infringe any of Forever 21′s rights.

Through my attorneys, Charles Colman of Charles Colman Law, PLLC, and Scott Burroughs of the Doniger/Burroughs Law Firm, I recently imposed my own deadline on Forever 21 which the company has failed to meet. My attorneys and I will not permit Forever 21 to use silence as a strategic tool or intimidation tactic, particularly when the company stood idly by for over a year as I blogged about their design disasters.

As such, please enjoy today’s long-overdue offering of WTFashions. This is a dark defeat for MC Hammer pants, floral jumpsuits and blinged out mini hats, but a joyous triumph for those who like to make fun of them. Which is pretty much anyone with eyes.

With love and lulz,
Rachel

Good for you, 'bb!

We hope the silence lasts.

Forever 21 Threatens To Sue Satirical Fashion Blogger

forever-21-sues-fashion-blogger-over-website.jpg

This is re-dad-gone-diculous!

Fashion blogger Rachel Kane is on the verge of a legal battle with Forever 21 because they lack a sense of humor and don't believe in First Amendment rights.

The company fired off a cease-and-desist letter last month and threatened to sue the comical WTForever21.com writer for "trademark infringement, copyright infringement, unfair competition and dilution" of the Forever 21 brand.

The letter goes on to say the name of her website "refers to an abbreviation for colloquial expression that the general public may find offensive" and has until June 10th to shut down her site or else.

There's so many things wrong with this lawsuit we don't know where to begin.

Forever 21 is acting like they're the only clothing company in the world to be critiqued. It happens ALL the time, you're not special.

We also find it hypocritical that Forever 21 is suing for copyright infringement when they too have infringed on copyright laws by knocking off other designers.

Hopefully the mounting backlash against the company will make them rethink this stupid lawsuit.

Thoughts???
