Frank Fuller ClassicOprah Winfrey and Tommy Hilfiger cleared up one of the oldest Internet rumors around -- but not to the satisfaction of one clothing company.

Frank Fuller Classic took out a recent magazine ad that exclaims they aren't "racist like Tommy Hilfiger." Yikes! The ad references a false rumor that dates back several years, which Tommy and Oprah both shot down earlier this year.

Attorneys for Tommy sent a cease and desist letter to the magazine that ran the ad and Frank Fuller Classic. A rep for Hilfiger tells TMZ, "This is nothing more than a hoax concocted months after Oprah and Tommy put to rest the tired, baseless yet intolerable rumor, declaring it a 'big, fat lie.'"
