Justin Bieber posted on his Instagram story on Monday, saying, “The H&M stuff they made me out of is trash,” CBS News reported. “Anything without my permission or approval… SMH, I wouldn’t buy this if I were you.”
A spokesperson for H&M said in a statement to CNN: “As with all other licensed products and partnerships, H&M has followed proper approval procedures.”
Following Bieber’s social media posts, H&M removed a collection it was selling online that featured T-shirts and sweatshirts featuring Bieber or quotes from his lyrics, such as “I miss you more than life,” according to Reuters. Items were available for prices ranging from $49.80 to $114.
Bieber has previously partnered with clothing company Forever 21, which released a “Justin Forever” line in 2016 to coincide with Bieber’s “Purpose” concert tour, according to CNN.
In 2018, Bieber opened his own clothing company, Drew House, with co-founder Ryan Hood, according to CBS News. The brand is known for its smiley logos, bright colors and patterns.
