Beyoncé shuts down sales of Feyoncé mugs on website
Beyoncé is clearly sensitive about her name.
So much so that she reportedly killed sales of Feyoncé mugs on the handmade retail website Etsy.
According to TMZ, Beyoncé’s lawyers threatened to sue Etsy for selling the Feyoncé mugs (which are a play on the word fiancé).
“The singer felt the pun was more than coincidental — right down to the accent on the last “e” — so her lawyers fired off a letter to the company crying foul … and then threatening them.
Etsy got the message and took the items off the artist’s online shop. But all is not well. Etsy still has other feyonce items on it’s site, including clothing and glassware. And these items are selling big.”
