Cardi B Threatened with Legal Action over Marge Simpson Halloween Costume

Cardi B has been threatened with legal action after she dressed up as Marge Simpson for Halloween. The rapper posted photos of her with a large blue wig, painted yellow face and a 1995 Thierry Mugler black dress, which the cartoon wore. The ‘Bodak Yellow‘ rapper also included artwork of the inspiration behind her costume on her Insta, which was made by aleXsandro Palombo back in 2013 as part of his ‘Marge Simpson Style Icon’ series – which was published in Vogue UK. The rapper credited Mugler but not the artist… See her post below:
Palombo hit back at the rapper by posting on his Insta, writing:
“Cardi B and her collaborators have used my artwork without any authorisation, debasing its original meaning and only to amplify their image with a clear commercial purpose that has nothing to do with that path of social awareness that has always characterised my works,”   “We wrote to Mrs Cardi B and collaborators how come that they never contacted us for authorisation to use the artwork and didn’t mentioned or credit the artist, violating Meta policy about intellectual property rights. Still no answer.”
