Jimmy Kimmel called out a clothing company for a “scumbag move” of allegedly stealing designs he claims were created by his daughter.
The late-night television host slammed the Reformation company for clothing designs that appeared similar to those by his 26-year-old daughter, Katie Kimmel.
“Scumbag move by @reformationx stealing ideas from a young artist (who happens to be my daughter @katiekimmel),”Kimmel tweeted Monday, comparing the clothing company’s designs to his daughter’s.

Reformation shirts with pasta-themed words like “al dente” and “spaghetti pomodoro” were included in Kimmel’s post which linked to his daughter’s design, a T-shirt that reads “linguini and clams” in a style similar to the one by Reformation.
Katie Kimmel’s online shop sells several T-shirts for $25 and sweatshirts for $40 with food-related phrases.
The comedian accused Reformation of stealing the look for the company’s line of $38 T-shirts.
Kimmel’s daughter also took to social media to address the alleged ripoff, posting a photo of herself superimposed over one of a model wearing the Reformation shirt.
Reformation denied copying Katie Kimmel’s designs, issuing a statement in the comment section on Instagram.
“Graphic word tees, sweatshirts and jackets have been a part of the Reformation brand and design aesthetic since we launched in 2009,” the company said. “We have a deep respect for artistic integrity and would never replicate or appropriate the work of a young artist, or any artist for that matter. This T-shirt collection is an extension of our ‘Carb Collection’ that launched in 2015, inspired by the ‘carb’ in ‘carbon emissions,’ as our brand mission is to provide a sustainable way to be fashionable.”
