Yay! We just got an official statement from embattled blogger Rachel Kane stating that she's leaving the wickedly funny WTForever21.com up (for now), and she'll soon be back to "blogging about fashion atrocities like lime green, faux fur covered vests and candy colored booty shorts". The statement gives a pretty unimpeachable defense of the site (you know we're not lawyers, right?) on the basis of fair use, protected speech, and that, "It's incredibly unlikely that any portion of the site would ever cause confusion in the minds of the general public about whether or not Forever 21 endorses or is affiliated with it." Yeah, Rachel, no one could ever confuse your site with the real Forever 21 because the copy on your site actually makes sense! [Racked Inbox, Racked, previously]
