Danielle Bernstein takes legal action against lingerie brand accusing her of copying designs

Danielle Bernstein has her panties in a bunch.

The fashion influencer — who boasts 2.5 million followers — is taking legal action against lingerie brand the Great Eros in a move the brand’s lawyer calls “slimier” than anything he’s seen “in more than a decade of practicing law.”

Bernstein, the founder of fashion blog and brand WeWoreWhat, filed papers in the Southern District on Thursday after the Williamsburg-based bra brand sent her a draft of a planned lawsuit and a cease and desist letter claiming she copied them. Bernstein is seeking a judgement that her use of the designs “does not infringe,” or “violate Defendant’s purported copyright.”

The Great Eros’ lawyer, Jeff Gluck, tells us, “she secretly filed this lawsuit while pretending to hold settlement talks. I have never seen anything slimier.”

In August, the undie brand accused Bernstein of ripping off a nude silhouette pattern they use on tissue paper and slapping it on her line’s wallpaper and $195 bathing suits for Onia. The Great Eros co-owner, Christina Viviani, told us her design “felt so spot on” noting the size, poses and spacing of their nudes.

In the suit, Bernstein says her design “was inspired by the generally ubiquitous concept of silhouette drawings of the human form along with a number of Henri Matisse’s line drawings.”

Gluck tells us, “This misguided charade is nothing more than yet another nasty attempt to intimidate and silence independent creatives and small-business owners. She believes that rules don’t apply to her.”

Bernstein was accused of stealing mask designs from Second Wind and a design from an Etsy shop, both of which she denied.
Bernstein’s lawyer, Robert Salame, said, “When it became clear that the Great Eros was going to baselessly sue our clients, we felt compelled to seek court confirmation that no infringement occurred.”

Who is Tanaya Beatty?

Tanaya was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on 12 February 1991, so under the zodiac sign of Aquarius, and she holds Canadian nationality. She is best known for her acting career, especially for her roles in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” and .

Early life and education

Tanaya is of mixed descent as her father is described as being of Himalayan descent, while her mother belongs to the Indigenous Da’naxda’xw First Nations, however, she did not get to live with them as she was adopted by an Italian family, and spent her entire childhood in British Columbia – she still feels as she is one of the Indigenous people because of her mother’s background. She acted for the first time when she was only five, in a play called “The Day the Moonfolk Landed”, but had only one line ,saying ‘What is that spaceship over there?’ but it was enough for her to fall for acting. Tanaya subsequently attended the Vancouver Film School from which she graduated after completing its full Essentials and Acting Program – she also has a certificate from a social work program which she attended, as she was interested in pursuing a career in psychology, and therefore worked in family centers.

Tanaya is to be credited with around 12 roles as she is still building her career – her second appearance was in movie in 2011 in which she played the role of Rachel Black, one of the humans in the film, and considered to be the most important one in her career, as it opened numerous doors for her.

Her first role in a TV series was also her first main role, as Jessica Finch in seven episodes of the TV series in 2012 while she also appeared in a single episode of “Blackstone” in the same year. Her next important role was the lead in “Arctic Air”, portraying Caitlin Janvier in 18 episodes from 2012 to 2014.

In 2013, she landed her second movie role, playing Tammy in the “Words and Pictures” drama film, while she also appeared as Rebecca in three episodes of the “Continuum” TV series. She went on to land the roles of Mel in “The 100” in 2014, and Dr. Shannon Rivera in TV series of which she in the main cast in 2016 and 2017. She then appeared in two movies in 2017 entitled “Hochelaga, Land of Souls” and “Hostiles”, and in “Through Black Spruce” in 2018.

Tanaya’s latest appearance was in 2018 in , portraying the character named Avery in a single episode.

Personal life and likes

Tanaya is one of those people who are secretive about their personal life – there is nothing known about her past relationships and she seems to be single at the moment, has never married and doesn’t have any kids – however, there are rumors that the actress is dating American actor Chris Pine but this has not been confirmed.

Tanaya’s favorite book is which she read when she was 18 and was obsessed with it, as she claimed during one of her interviews, and even before there was any talk about making a movie based on the book, that she dreamt about playing Annie. When she was invited for an audition, she thought that someone was joking with her, and after she won the role couldn’t believe it, and felt as that was the most important role in her life as she saw her connection to Annie as an Indigenous woman. The producer of the movie described Tanaya’s acting: ‘Just by the way Tanaya played it, she made me realize that this infrastructure of Canada is not our infrastructure. It’s not our home. No wonder we’re at risk here. That’s a big part of the film’s story. The health and social factors, the systemic racism – it’s because this isn’t our place, we don’t run this place. Watching her made me cry.’

Appearance and net worth

According to authoritative sources, Tanaya’s current net worth is estimated to be over $1 million while the biggest grossing movie in which she has appeared was “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” as it amassed $712.2 million worldwide.

Social media presence

Tanaya is not as active on social media platforms as one would have thought – she has an account with nearly 14,000 followers and around 30 posts, but she doesn’t appear to have any others – there is an account on Twitter but it is likely to be fan-made as it has less than 500 followers.

‘In my perfect world, there would be a lot more Indigenous voices out there, more Indigenous actors, more Indigenous people in higher positions.’

‘My great-grandmother was killed in a house fire on the reservation when she was 16. Her daughter was placed in a residential school, where only the worst horrors that can be imagined happened to her. Her daughter – my mother – was taken in the Sixties Scoop. By the time my mom was pregnant with me, she wasn’t confident in her ability to parent, and hadn’t had the chance to heal from the traumas she’d experienced. It’s a long line of people who have been strategically removed from one another.’

Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” segment consistently manages to make the tweets of annoying trolls hilarious. It can even make celebrities you don’t like seem a little charming because they’re in on the joke.

The show has done the regular segments, as well as special editions for the Oscars, NBA Finals, CMAs, or simply because former President Barack Obama is around. However, it’s worth noting Kimmel always gets off the hook. With a strong stance on health care and other political issues, there’s no shortage of material for him to pick from. There are plenty of trolls with special takes on the late night host.

The tables turned for Kimmel’s 50th birthday. Jimmy Kimmel Live had a special episode featuring lots of stars and a lot of poking fun at the host. That included a “Mean Tweets” installment where his friends read mean tweets about him. There were lots of NSFW tweets and a few that were just legitimately good burns, like the one that had Larry David cracking up: “I forgot Jimmy Kimmel’s name so I googled ‘Ugly late night talk show host’ and I got him, top link.”

Watch above to see Anthony Anderson, Kristen Bell, Tracy Morgan, Jon Stewart, Zach Galifianakis, Jennifer Lawrence, Stephen Colbert, Kim Kardashian West, David Letterman, Chris Hemsworth, and others read mean tweets about Kimmel.

College Football’s Most Pleasant Turnover Prop Is Penn State’s Turnover Greeting Card

Published

Like every Big Ten team besides the two that faced off on Friday night, Penn State kicked off its 2020 season on Saturday. The Nittany Lions traveled to Indiana to take on a dangerous Hoosier squad and found themselves in some serious trouble in the third quarter, trailing 17-7 and desperately needing a spark.

That moment came on the heels of a lengthy Nittany Lion drive that ended with a missed field goal. Indiana quarterback Michael Penix, on the first play of the ensuing drive, took a deep shot and got picked off by Penn State’s Lamont Wade. While the eighth-ranked Lions would go on to score after that, the far more important moment came as the defense returned to the sideline to celebrate the pick.

One of Wade’s teammates, linebacker Jesse Luketa, grabbed the Nittany Lions’ apparent prop — the Turnover Greeting Card — and held it up for all the world to see.

Now beyond the fact that this is my alma mater and I have a vested interest in seeing this a lot, I very much hope this gets a ton of run this year, because this is extremely funny. That, to be clear, is the case with every college football turnover prop, and if not for the fact that games would be repulsive if they were gigantic turnover-fests, it would be great if every college football game featured multiple cameos by them.
