MILWAUKEE — It’s been a long week for the most popular athlete in Milwaukee.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had his social media accounts hacked, and now he is suing a California website that was using his “Greek Freak” label on merchandise.
According to reports, the merchandise that was being sold included unlicensed phone cases, hoodies, baby onesies and bodysuits.
On March 27, Antetokounmpo sent a cease and desist letter to the defendants, who have since scrubbed his merch off their Fan Closet website. However, they failed to cooperate with Antetokounmpo “in good faith” to reach an agreement that “would ensure that infringement has ceased.”
Antetokounmpo is suing for $2 million in damages.
