Rick Ross - Fake Fanatic

This guy has been spotted wearing fake gear on more than one occasion. Wearing fake sunglasses on the cover of a major publication, however, is an all new level of dumbassness. Here is the letter the editor received:

Dear Editor:

We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.

The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.

Maximum ownage! I hope people take a second to think about this and really rethink what "cool" is. What makes the whole situation even more hilarious is the quote "I've never had a credibility problem and still don't."

They are actually customized Millionaires. The frame itself is authentic, but this customizer based in LA did them up to Ross' liking. It's basically the same as someone customizing a pair of Nike's, so I don't understand why he's catching heat from all of the media for it.
