The popular entertainer recently hit the net with a lengthy gripe about the mega retailer and promptly put them on blast for unauthorized sales of his holiday ‘Dabbin’ Santa’ shirts on their website.
He recently posted a screenshot via Instagram of the sweaters being sold on Walmart’s website, stating that he’s contemplating litigation.
Oooh nooo someone please tell Walmart that they didn’t get permission to use this patent or likeness in anyway. We use this sweater this time of year to spread togetherness and also give back to those who are less fortunate or not able to provide for their families at the time …

As he stated in the caption, 2 Chainz came up with the ingenious idea of ‘Dabbin’ Santa’ ugly Christmas sweaters a few years back and he’s done quite a few good deeds with the proceeds.
