Forever 21 Threatens Blogger With Lawsuit for WTForever21 Site


The initial excitement that came from receiving an email from the brand she is a fan of turned to fretting over her next step as the blogger looks for legal counsel.

"I resolved myself that I definitely need to retain counsel. My only fear is if I take the Web site down by June 10 I might still face a lawsuit," Kane said. "I would really be disappointed and hurt to take down this blog which has a community built around it and then be sued anyway."

Is Kane still a fan of the retailer?

"I'm finding myself kind of less inclined to want to give them my money just as a consumer just knowing this particular decision they made is now in their corporate identity," she said.

As of now, the clock is ticking on what will happen to the Web site. Forever 21 did not respond to our calls or emails by press time.

"I really just want to keep the site going. I don't make any money off of it. I'm not getting rich off of it. It's just a fun thing. It just makes people laugh. I don't get what the big deal is," Kane said.

"I want to talk about them. I want to feel good about the brand. I want to be a consumer," she said. "I want to exercise any right I have civilly. That's it."
