Nick young was accused of stealing a t-shirt design, with Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, and posing as his. On Instagram, the designer explained that the shirt would be sold and the proceeds would be donated to the Kobe sports foundation, Mambacita.
Apparently, Nick saw it and liked it.
The designer showed a screenshot of Nick calling the “illuminated” design on DM and asking the man to send him a t-shirt.
According to the designer, he sent it to Nick for free because he knew how much he loved Kobe.

However, complications soon arose when Nick blocked the designer on Instagram and promoted the shirt under his own fashion poster, Mosthated, without crediting the man. Unlike the designer who made it clear that the money would be donated to the Kobe organization, Nick in his original publication did not mention anything about the donation.
“The shirt will arrive soon! Soft as lovely,” captioned the photo that has since been removed.
Nick then responded on his Instagram. Although the designer said the profits would go to Kobe’s organization, Nick accused the man of taking advantage of Kobe’s death.
On top of that, Nick accused the designer of seeking attention. “Brother, stop saying my name trying to be famous,” he said in DMs.
