From Bostonista: Johnny Cupcakes Ripped at Billabong

1200081890Our charming style guru Bostonista is stirring the pot again, with a report on a very ticked Johnny Earle, owner and founder of the Johnny Cupcakes boutique on Newbury St., who says Billabong ripped off his t-shirt design from 2005.

Says Johnny:

“I thought for some weird reason Billabong had bought a heap of my shirts and were selling it, until I closely looked and saw their logo attached on my design.”

Asked if he would take action, Earle said, “You bet I will!”
