Kim Kardashian is suing Old Navy for using a model that looks like her in a jeans commercial. The spot features a woman by the name of Melissa Molinaro singing about her fabulous lifestyle or some such. Kardashian’s legal time is alleging that the ad has done $15 million to $20 million to her, uh, brand.
Since I don’t have a law degree, I’ll ask: isn’t this protected as parody? How do we even know it’s supposed to be Kim Kardashian? Because she has a side ponytail?
Either way, there’s far too much spelling in this ad for me to believe it’s about a Kardashian.
We’re not yet sure if Kim is suing because she finds the ad offensive or is worried about the dilution of her brand. I would not put it past a Kardashian to sue for the publicity (maybe Kim’s just racist?). While you ponder these questions, here is a series of unrelated images.
