Turns out that Forever 21 doesn't take kindly to parody blogs. The fast fashion retailer has threatened to sue LA-based writer Rachel Kane for her blog WTForever21, claiming copyright infringement. (Take a minute to image that meeting at F21 headquarters: "What's that thing people are always accusing us of? Let's sue her for that.") The brand also alleges that their reputation has been damaged by Kane's use of "WTF." [Racked LA]
