US clothing retailer Gap is selling a kids’ t-shirt featuring graphics stolen from Judas Priest, says Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher.
He’s pointed out that a two tone shirt bearing a metal eagle on an orange oval background looks dramatically similar to the Hellion logo on the band’s landmark Screaming For Vengeance album, due for its 30th anniversary release in September.
Kelliher says via his Tumblr feed, “Leave it to the Gap to steal ideas for kid t-shirts. Seriously poor taste.”
It’s not the first time Gap have been accused of plagiarism. Another clothing firm last month launched a lawsuit against them, alleging they recycled two designs they had not created.
