Beyoncé Is Sick Of You Using Her Name For Stupid Crap On Etsy

Bye, Feyoncé.

January 23, 2015

Etsy is, as we all know, a garbage dump-cum-flea market for people who use the word "crafts" while describing their interests at parties. It is a site filled with useless trash, and this is such a well-known fact that the mere notion of making fun of Etsy (which, granted, I am doing this very second) comes across as utterly passé. People are still using Etsy, though, and one of the things they are apparently using Etsy for is making cheap-ass trinkets that pun the shit out of Beyoncé's name.

Saint Knowles ain't having it no more, though: TMZ reports that the singer's lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to one unlucky Etsy seller hawking coffee mugs and other things emblazoned with the word "Feyoncé." I'll admit that I didn't even get the joke until I said it out loud—Feyoncé, fiance, Oprah, Uma, Uma, Oprah—so maybe it's good that these things have been removed from the world (or at least Etsy's world).

Of course, a simple search on Etsy reveals that there are more Feyoncé things being sold out there, so we'll see how long the Streisand Effect has its grasp on this particular situation.
