Ok so i haven’t really been posting up to date info on the formiddable train wreck that is Rick Ross (aka Officer Ricky). All this non sense between him and 50 cent is both annoying and not worth my time, but this situation is definitely worth a post. Turns out Rick Ross not only fronted as being a drug lord from the streets of miami (turned out to be a PO officer instead) but on his latest cover for XXL Magazine he is rocking FAKE Louis Vuitton Shades. Don’t know about you but i feel that it speaks to his career in a nut shell. Here is the Letter written to XXL from LV’s Malletier, Michael Pantalony.
We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.
The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.
HAHAHAHA WHACK !!!!!!
