I received the following apology letter from Stay True Brand. From the sounds of it, it was a misunderstanding and some loser had sent them the art saying they created it for them. I understand, and I accept their apology. They removed it from their page, and sent out messages and bulletins with the apology letter.
I, in no way, would ever disrespect a company that indeed lives by their name and “Stays True”. Let this be a lesson to everyone to be careful of what you put out on the internet, because it could easily be stolen, and also, not jump to conclusions without giving the other person a chance to explain themselves.
Here is the letter I received:
dude i have sent this bulletin out..
STAY TRUE BRAND WOULD LIKE TO SAY SORRY TO CASTRO..
UNTILL NOW WE HAVE HAD A DESIGN UP WHAT SOME **** SENT TO US SAYING THEY HAD DONE IT FOR US, IT HAS ONLY BEEN NOW THAT WE HAVE FOUND OUT WHERE IT TRUELY COME FROM AND THAT IS AN ARTIST CALLED CASTRO WHO IS FROM CALI AND IS AN AMAZING ARTIST, BY FAR MORE ADVANCED THAT STAY TRUE BRAND IS.
