Don’t mess with the state of New York — especially the Department of Agriculture.
Reality star Khloe Kardashian learned this lesson the hard way. Her high-end clothing line Rich Soil recently received a “cease and desist” letter from the state — currently led by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration — after one of its New York-themed t-shirts beared a striking resemblance to the state’s Department of Agriculture logo.
The letter warned that “it would sue if Rich Soil did not immediately stop selling the shirt and provide an estimate of how much money it has made off the design,” according to The NY Daily News.
Rich Soil soon yanked the product from its website. State officials first noticed the similar design when they saw a photo of Kardashian sporting the $35 Rich Soil t-shirt.
