Kanye Forces Burger Restaurant to Change its Name and Logo
According to reports, Kanye West has served an Australian burger restaurant a cease-and-desist letter. “College Dropout Burgers,” founded by Ye fan, Mark Elkhouri, received word of legal action from the artist if the restaurant does not rebrand.
Inspired by Ye’s debut album, The College Dropout, the restaurant utilizes a Graduation bear logo for branding and features menu items like the “Golddigger” fried chicken sandwich, “Good Morning” breakfast sandwich, and “Cheezus” burger.
Initially believing that Kanye West was a fan of his establishment, Elkhouri was quick to share screenshots of the artist viewing the College Dropout Burgers’ Instagram stories. Despite having to rebrand his restaurant, Elkhouri remains optimistic and notes that he plans to respect Ye’s wishes and move forward.
Going on to note the situation as a “blessing in disguise” and highlighting the impact Kanye has had on his life.
