Yung Lean‘s Sad Boy Collective has accused retailer Urban Outfitters of stealing its designs. The offending jacket, seen above, uses a frowning face seen on a Yung Lean cap and a “Yoshi City Nights 2002” lettering, which is similar to “Yoshi city,” a Yung Lean song released in 2014.

In a post on Facebook, Sad Boys said:

the discussion of big corporations feeding off small independent creators and their work is too vast and depressing to conduct here, so let´s settle with this – yoshi city belongs to us and our true fans · fuck u Urban Outfitters · support the official sadboysgear.com + yungleangear.com ·

Urban Outfitters haven’t made a statement yet but, at the time of writing, the offending item appears to have been taken off the Urban Outfitters site. A search for the specific item brings up a “This item is no longer available” error page. We’ll update with further information as we receive it.
