Kanye West Fires New Yeezy Designer Over Embarrassing Plagiarism Incident
If you are going to plagiarise someone else's work, it's best to not let your boss share 'your' work with 28.2 million Twitter followers. One new recruit to Team Yeezy learned this lesson the hard way after Mr. Kanye West excitedly shared their purported drawing on Twitter, gushing over his new design team.
The design in question was an anatomical drawing, showing the muscles and movement of the leg. It was created by ex-Nike designer turned Givenchy design director Tony Spackman all the way back in 2005. Unfortunately for the unnamed Yeezy designer, who lazily photoshopped out the drawing's title, Spackman noticed the blatant plagiarism and was quick to call Kanye out for copying his work.
Recognising he'd been fooled by his new employee, Yeezy hastily tweeted that the employee in question had been let go. Further still, Kanye tweeted to acknowledge the 'true creator of this amazing work', praising Spackman. Well done Kanye for giving credit where credit's due and R.I.P. unnamed Yeezy designer!
