Considering all of the businesses and ventures Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz is involved in, you’d think he’d miss a step or two, right? Well, America’s biggest retail store, Walmart, found this to be untrue the hard way when 2 Chainz called them out on Instagram for selling his famous Dabbing Santa Sweaters on their website.
🤔🤔😡😤Oooh nooo someone please tell Walmart that they didn't get permission to use this patent or likeness in anyway. We use this sweater this time of year to spread togetherness and also give back to those who are less fortunate or not able to provide for their families at the time 🙏🏿…That being said it's gone be a Jolly Holly Xmas #WALMARTGONEBUYMEAHOUSE #WALMARTGONEBUYMEACAR #Walmartgonegiveback2mycommunity #WALMARTGONEMAKEMEASTAR. 😆🤣gotta lil ring to it mite lay dat bihhh down later tonight when I get to the studio
2 Chainz started selling the sweaters in 2015 as a twist on the classic “ugly sweater” tradition, and as a means to spread holiday cheer to the less fortunate during Christmas. Walmart (like every other corporation) saw a money-making opportunity, rather than the intention behind the sweaters, thus causing them to allegedly steal 2 Chainz’s product. Looks like Walmart may be receiving court papers from 2 Chainz soon for unlicensed use of a product for profit.
