Rachel Kane, the blogger behind WTForever21, announced on Friday that she won't take her site down despite threats from the fast-fashion giant. In her statement, she defends the site on the basis of fair use, protected speech, and the unlikelihood that anyone would think it was endorsed by Forever 21, and promises to go back to "blogging about fashion atrocities like lime green, faux-fur–covered vests and candy colored booty shorts."
