Beware of Hipsters by Cali Killa. Image Stolen by Urban Outfitters.

I was really upset this morning when I found out that Urban Outfitters has STOLEN the work of street artist Cali Killa.  Cali Killa’s “Beware of Hipsters” image has appeared on the streets of major metropolitan cities in the USA including Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and New York as well as on many art sites, including According2g.com.  Without seeking Cali Killa’s approval or permission, Urban Outfitters is now selling a line of “Beware of Hipsters” T-shirts.  Cali Killa will not see any money from this gross injustice and it’s not fair!  Until Urban Outfitters rights the wrong, I am asking you all to boycott Urban Outfitters!

If any legal experts can help out, please get in touch!  If anyone knows Urban Outfitters CEO Glen Senk, please get in touch.  Please Tweet about this, post this information on Facebook and forward to as many art blogs and media sites as you can. We cannot let Urban Outfitters get away with this!  Please forward this information to everyone you can and boycott Urban Outfitters for STEALING the art work of Cali Killa.

Thank you.

UPDATE:  Thanks to all my dear readers for helping spread the word.  Less than 48 hours after this article appeared online, Urban Outfitters removed the products from their stores and website.  You all ROCK!  xo
