Taylor Swift Accused of Stealing Logo From Black Designer

Taylor Swift Releases Surprise Version of 'Cardigan' & Here's Why You Need To Get It Right Now

The famous singer made the announcement via Twitter after receiving serious backlash from those who noticed merchandise for her album, "Folklore" looked eerily similar to the New York City-based brand, The Folklore.

When folklore first dropped, fans were quick to dissect each and every word Swift wrote - because as we know with the singer, they are often filled with intention.

"It makes ideal sense that Taylor and Joe with their super-private relationship would want to share this news with us, the committed fans who buy the deluxe album, first". Which was actually a merch logo from a Black designer.

Swift is now selling sweatshirts, t-shirts, and cardigans with that name and logo, all to promote her new album that she released last week.

"I am not going to let this blatant theft go unchecked", said Amira Rasool, the founder of The Folklore, in an Instagram post. "I'm sharing my narrative to deliver light into the tendency of big companies/celebrities copying the function of little minority-owned small business owners".

InStyle reported that Rasool said that her lawyer has been in contact with Swift's manager over the merchandise, and that the team took "swift action" to correct the problem. "So i see i went viral while i didn't have my phone [crying face emoji]", she tweeted. Rasool shared two side-by-side photos: one of Swift's Folklore cardigan, which showed the word "Folklore" with word "The" on the side of "F".

"I recognize that she has been a strong advocate for women protecting their creative rights, so it was good to see her team is on the same page", Rasool tweeted.

Taylor Swift has surprised fans with a new version of her single, "Cardigan". Later, Rasool publicly thanked Swift for her response.

Swift's selection to shake it off and suitable training course stands in contrast to the way that Lady A, formerly known as Woman Antebellum, taken care of a very similar predicament.

Originally, it appeared that the parties would have the ability to figure out things. The suit asserts that the group was granted a trademark on the name Lady A in 2011, after several years of using it interchangeably with Lady Antebellum for their goods and services.
