Uh-oh. Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso has taken to Twitter to call out the not-so-subtle inspiration behind Forever 21's latest magazine cover. You see, the fast-fashion retailer's logo is in the exact same iridescent metallic font that Nasty Gal used for their debut issue of Super Nasty, which we got our hands on last month.

"They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. This feels like highway robbery," Amoruso Tweeted this morning, accompanied by the above F21 snap. She also posted the image on Instagram and NG diehards are sounding off, saying everything from "Forever 21 does this to everyone" to "Take it as a compliment!" What say you?
