Whose Hunk Is It Anyway?

Comments (0)

This story of how the Vivienne Westwood brand took an artist's work and put it on a T-shirt is fascinating to me for the ballsiness of the appropriation, as well as for issues of ownership—the work in question, while certainly unique and identifiable, itself makes use of found imagery.

The man whose face is at the center (literally) of artist Roberta Marrero's work, and is now on a Vivienne Westwood shirt, is David White, a classic Playgirl model. The image was shot by the supremely talented Norbert Jobst (who has probably since died—he would be 90+) for Playgirl, and as such belongs to the magazine, should they still retain any documentation following their many changings of the guard.

Plus: Would Mr. White not be able to object to being sold on a T-shirt (as opposed to being the subject of an original piece of collage art)?

Apparently, Westwood's husband designed the shirt, and the company is now claiming it was all one giant mistake—it has apologized to Marrero directly, which the artist greatly appreciates.

Check out Roberta Marrero's work here.

Brian Sims Calls Out D.G. Yuengling & Son For Pro-Trump Donations

Comments (0)

Brian Sims, possibly the sexiest Congress critter ever (and he's gay!), is using his social media reach to put D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., a brewery, on blast for supporting the odious Trump/Pence ticket.

Using an image of the hard-to-look-at Eric Trump posed with Yeungling's owner, Sims pointed out that money that goes to Yuengling goes to anti-gay politicians, something the businesses in the Gayborhood should consider when deciding whether to continue stocking the brand.

Dick Yuengling went so far as to gush to Eric, “Our guys are behind your father. We need him in there.” 

Fans of the beer did a prolonged spittake on Twitter.

Yuengling is the oldest brewery in the U.S. (Matthew, the teetotaller, has never heard of it), having been founded as Eagle Brewery in 1829. Perhaps, like the GOP, it will achieve its demise thanks to Donald J. Trump.
