Fake magazine cover Cause Drake, 21 Savage to get sued
Some media even covered the issue, which annoyed Condé Nast because it was completely fake. They said the company and Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief, “did not confirm [“Her Loss”] in any way. “
The company also claims to have asked rappers to go platinum multiple times for all ads using the Vogue name to be taken down, but nothing has been done. Both Drake and 21 share a fake cover image, with no indication that it’s fake. They even tagged the magazine, putting Anna up in the caption.
Me and my brother on the newsstand tomorrow!!
Thank you @voguemagazine and Anna Wintour for your love and support at this historic moment
She died on November 4th
Condé Nast also claimed Drake’s and 21’s teams’ emails blew fans away about “celebrating Drake’s Vogue cover”. They say street teams around the country will even distribute fake copies and did. One twitter user reported that they were given the magazine while walking in New York City.
Street teams will be broadcasting today’s edition of Drake/21 Vogue in select cities.
