Justin Bieber can rest soundly because his Drew House knockoffs are being completely removed from the digital marketplace.
Redbubble, which hosted the Drew look-alikes, tell The Blast they reached out to Bieber on Wednesday and removed all the fake sweatshirts and tees from the site after the singer called them out on social media.
“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 rep for the company says. “Redbubble proactively works with properties to expediently remove content that violates our terms of service, and look to partner with intellectual property owners to prevent incidents like these.”
“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,” the rep adds.
As The Blast reported, sweatshirts with Bieber’s signature Drew smiley face were being sold on the site for as cheap as $45 while two styles of shirts bearing his name were selling for under $20.
Once the Biebs caught wind of the site selling knockoffs, he made sure fans knew by blasting them on Instagram.
