Hells Angels

Sues Young Jeezy Over Skull Logo

Hells No You Don't!!!

The Hells Angels don't need baseball bats and chains to protect their image -- all they need is a good lawyer, which is exactly what they got to sue rapper Young Jeezy's clothing line ... claiming Jeezy's company jacked their iconic Death Head logo.

The fabled motorcycle club filed the lawsuit against 8732 Apparel for essentially reprinting the Hells Angels logo on jackets and hats ... and selling them for a massive profit.

The 8732 design isn't an exact rip-off ... but Hells Angels claims it's close enough to confuse people.

HA claims 8732 has already earned substantial profits from the bootleg merch, and the motorcycle club wants every last cent of that money.

The club is now suing for unspecified damages. It also wants a judge to force 8732 to stop selling anything with an HA-looking logo on it. Calls to 8732 were not returned.

FYI, this isn't the first time the Hells Angels went ballistic over someone stealing their logo -- you'll recall, they sued Rob Dyrdek's clothing company and MTV last year for the same thing.

Hell's Angels are not KKK members. Obviously you've never seen any of their club members. Young Jeezy isn't very intelligent in his decision making and doesn't know who he's dealing with.

I don't support the hells angels but that is an obvious rip off. Not sure why someone would even try this. They could easily be mistaken and that puts people in danger doesn't it??

Wow... they bothered suing his ass!?

That's pretty damn amazing; cause, up in Canada, they would literally put a bullet in the guy's skull if he ripped them off. They usually only use lawyers to get out of drug and/or murder charges.

Really damn civilize of them... probably a cover before they really 'tune-up' that dumbass.

You racist muthaf..... need to get ya as$es off of here. Y u gotta always make $hyt about race. Rappers aren't the only ones to sample or steal. Every artist samples music bt since u wanna add race then most likely the ones who sample, they sample from black people. As far as stealing, older white women do it the most. Y'all have a good day to the normal people. To all the racists bwitches go kill yourself so u can go to Hells, angel. Lol

Ha, Anyone stupid enough to steal the hells angels logo isn't too bright.
This isn't IBM or Microsoft you are negotiating with, it's a pack of very aggressive bikers who will use whatever force necessary to win their case. And they will not quit until they are victorious . period.
