Following the release of their collaborative album Her Loss, Drake and 21 Savage are being sued by Vogue publisher Condé Nast for a parody Vogue cover. In the promotional stages of the album rollout, the duo were seen partaking in various stunts which were often parodies of popular media such as COLORS Studio and Saturday Night Live.
Though this has been widely well-received, a parody Vogue cover of the duo has resulted in an alleged $4 million USD trademark-infringement lawsuit, first reported by TMZ. Many fans were led to believe the cover was real due to Drake’s promotional comments on social media, which thanked Vogue and Anna Wintour, and claimed the issue would be “on newsstands tomorrow.”
Condé Nast’s lawyers reportedly claim the fake issue “damaged the goodwill and reputation” of Vogue, and they were “left with no choice but to commence this action,” due to a failure by Drake and 21 Savage’s parties to comply with a cease-and-desist letter. Condé Nast claim the promotional stunt was a violation of Vogue’s trademark and intellectual property.
Images of the parody cover have since been taken down from Drake’s social media pages.
