We all know that Forever 21 has been so successful thanks to the modern and flirty options they offer at an excellent price, without a doubt one of the best on the market. We also know that most of their designs are copies of much more expensive brands and of course that is why many love them, since they can wear very fashionable pieces at an unbeatable price. Now, if it is a question of copying a t-shirt that has a great message of empowerment behind it and that apart from its sales are directed to a cause very close to the heart of many women, it is unacceptable.
It turns out that Forever 21 has been accused of copying a T-shirt created by the Planned Parenthood program, a nonprofit organization that provides vital reproductive health care and sex education services to men and women in the United States and the world.
The white T-shirt, which comes with the word woman in nine languages, was copied almost exactly by the famous store. To differentiate it from the original, which was created by the advertising company Word Agency and donated to the organization to help with the cause, they chose to put the word "woman" only in five languages and made it sleeveless. Similarly, the agency is not very happy with this.
"Hey Forever 21, we don't like to point anyone out, but this looks very familiar," the agency wrote, along with a photo they posted where both shirts appear. “Just so you know, we created this shirt with a purpose. Too bad they removed the Swahili, the Arabic, the Hebrew and the Japanese. Forever 21 donate all the money to Planned Parenthood.”
We did not find the shirt on the Forever 21 website and the company has not commented on it either. Now we just have to wait to see what actions the agency takes.
