MSN.com — The Hells Angels motorcycle gang, well-known for tattoos, a violent, aggressive attitude and thundering Harley-Davidsons, is picking a fight with a small, British luxury fashion house, according to news reports.
In a complaint filed in federal court in California, the leather-clad gang has sued the Alexander McQueen fashion company, owned by France’s PPR luxury group, for allegedly misusing its winged skull logo and has demanded the couture line stop producing items like the “Hells Angels silk scarf” ($475), the “Hells Four-finger Ring” ($495) and the “Hells knuckle duster” clutch purse (selling online for just over $1,800).
OK…if there are 2 groups in America that you don’t mess with, it’s the Rosie O’Donnell Fan Club and the Hells Angels.
RIP McQueen, but count your blessings that you’re dead cause you’d be wishing you were after dealing with these kids. I remember one time riding in the back of my g-pa’s Oldsmobile station wagon with rear-facing seats. As we were driving along a pack of motorcyclists pulled up behind us. I, being the 9-year-old tart that I was, decided to start waving to them and blowing kisses. I’ve never seen my g-ma so scared before. I’m pretty sure she thought I was going to get raped and murdered. Her fear was then instilled in me and I’ve been scared of any group of motorcyclists ever since (be it the Hell’s Angels or Christians Riding for the Son).
I guess what I’m trying to say is that this is a group you shouldn’t fuck with. So Queen, while your ring is dope as shit and I wish I’d bought it before the HA tore in there and made it more impossible to snag than the Berkin Bag, you should probably just let this battle go to the cyclists. You will not win nor should you want to.
