Luxury retailer Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Bros. because of an allegedly fake LV purse carried by one of the film’s characters.

LV filed papers in NYC over the weekend and are demanding a share of the films profits.

Reports the Times Of India via Hollywood Reporter:

Executives of the French brand have filed a lawsuit against the movie bosses claiming that a handbag seen onscreen in the hands of Galifianakis is a Louis Vuitton fake.

According to the legal papers, filed at a federal court in New York, the fashion house bosses are unhappy with a scene in which the actor carries a bag with a LVM logo and says, ” Careful, that is a Louis Vuitton,” the Daily Express reported.

They claim the bag is not a real Louis Vuitton and could cause confusion among consumers.

Good luck with that one, LV!

We don’t know how many people saw the Hangover 2, a sequel with the same premise as its original, so the profits received might be enough for a fake LV bag!
