Clothing store Forever 21 pulls replica of Kurt Cobain’s handmade Flipper shirt
Kurt Cobain in his homemade Flipper shirt vs Forever 21’s version
Forever 21 is under fire… this time for selling a shirt designed by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.
No, Cobain wasn’t much of a fashion designer. But he knew how to use a magic marker, which is how he made the noted Flipper band T-shirt he wore during a 1992 performance on “Saturday Night Live.”
Earlier today, a replica of the shirt was retailing on Forever 21′s website for for $16.90. The shirt has since been pulled from the site, meaning Forever 21 might not be too keen on fighting legal battles over items that cost less than $20.-[SeattlePI]
