It seems like Saint Laurent and the company that owns the rights to its intellectual property, Luxury Goods International (LGI), are not fans of satire. After cutting ties with Parisian boutique Colette when the store started selling the parody shirt "Ain't Laurent Without Yves," the French label has now filed a lawsuit against the shirt's creator and founder of parody brand What About Yves, Jeanine Heller. 

Not such good news for Jeanine, considering she has also recently been convicted of stalking her ex-friend, actress Taryn Manning. Between the stalking and copyright infringement case, we guess we ain't seeing those parody shirts for long.
