A-List Icon Mocks Crazy Dave Grohl Lawsuit In New Photo


TMZ reported a couple of weeks ago that Nirvana believe that their iconic smiley face design was stolen by clothing brand Marc Jacobs, and they have filed a new big money lawsuit where he’ll likely have to write a crazy paycheck if he loses. Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are Nirvana’s surviving members. Lawsuit documents claim that in November 2018, Marc Jacobs announced the release of its “Bootleg Redux Grunge” collection featuring socks, shirts and sweaters with the MJ line and a squiggly yellow smiley face. Nirvana has owned the trademark to a very similar smiley face design since 1992, and the band think “Bootleg Redux Grunge” is a blatant ripoff of the design.

The lawsuit also claims Nirvana as one of the founders of the “Grunge” music scene … so even the Marc Jacobs’ line name was created thanks to the band. Marc Jacobs have a connection to Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, as Frances Bean Cobain modeled for him in 2017.

Now Jacobs has responded to the lawsuit in a new Instagram photo, defiantly still wearing the shirt he is being sued over by Grohl, Novoselic, and company.

Jacobs wrote on the Instagram post, “Heading home. #beyondgrateful @nevillejacobs photo @1.800.newbold.” Jacobs’ dog is next to him in the photo.
