Under the post titled “Can I Sue This Dude?” Lee Tae Yeon wrote, “I shared the original on Facebook 6 years ago.”

So I’ve been told that some guy I’ve never heard of, Lil Uzi Vert or whatever, apparently stole my original work to use on his album cover. How do I f*cking get back at him for this? I have records of that artwork being shared on my Facebook 6 years ago and getting 50 or something Likes… I was just out here hanging out and all of a sudden I’ve become the designer for some rapper’s album cover? Ridiculous. I don’t want anything else, I just want his official apology. What do you guys think I should do? He probably won’t reply his DMs.
