Previously, it was revealed that a civil lawsuit was filed against Kanye West’s YEEZY brand, claiming the rapper’s clothing company failed to ship items in a timely fashion. When the suit was filed, district attorneys asked that Kanye West be fined “$2,500 for each violation” related to affected customers. Now, news surfaced noting Yeezy Apparel and Yeezy LLC will have to pay $950,000 due to consistent delays in the civil lawsuit.
LA district attorney George Gascon addressed the matter, saying, “Online consumers are entitled to protection against unwarranted fees and unreasonably long waits for purchases to arrive on their doorsteps. We will enforce state and federal laws governing online shopping in Los Angeles County.” News of this comes after the lawsuit was introduced on October 22. The suit found the brand being accused of falsely advertising timely shipping. Along with that, Yeezy brand reportedly didn’t give any update to customers on the delays after the 30-day period in California passed.
