Justin Bieber’s calling out the fakes.
Justin Bieber’s Drew House clothing line is really just beginning to take off and already an online clothing retailer has attempted to rip off the singer’s apparel. Justin uploaded an image to his Instagram story yesterday that showed a screenshot of Redbubble’s online site, selling a clear knockoff of Justin’s Drew House hoodie with text that reads “Fake.”

The website was selling the hoodie for $45 as well as other knockoff shirts for $25 but since Justin publicly blasted them, the merchandise has been pulled. “Redbubble is a global marketplace for more than 845,000 independent artists who want to showcase and sell their own unique designs. All content is uploaded by users and we take abuse of the platform and the rights of others very seriously,” a company representative explained to The Blast. “We have removed all the designs in question from the marketplace and have reached out to Mr. Bieber’s team to ensure a quick resolution to the matter.”
In other Justin news, the singer issued an apology earlier this week after his pregnancy April Fool’s joke was not taken lightly. “There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children,” he wrote.
