When Kanye West went on tour for his The Life of Pablo Tour, he sold probably the hottest merch in the game. Everyone was wearing it from A-lift celebrities to your next-door neighbor. So hot, other companies started making clothing very similar to the Pablo merch.
Forever 21 has recently been accused of copying the Pablo merch from Yeezy’s tour in 2016. Fans and Forever21 shoppers took notice to their Pablo-like merch and weren’t happy about it.

The same people who try and clown Kanye’s fashion are the same people who buy the knock off forever 21 version 3 months later.

And this isn’t the first time Forever 21 tried to copy some Pablo merch and other clothing brands. Back in July of 2016, the company tried to copy West’s merch with t-shirts looking quite close to the tour’s gear. Other clothing companies have complained about Forever 21’s habit of copying high-demand brands like Thrasher and Puma.
I know a lot of brands have some fire gear, but damn.
