Teenager behind website which allows kittens to punch Donald Trump in the face receives cease and desist letter

It’s ‘fucking outrageous’, says creator of KittenFeed.com

A 17-year-old girl who created a website which allows users to punch Donald Trump in the face with kitten paws has received a cease and desist letter from the president’s top lawyer.

The girl, known only as “Lucy”, is an aspiring web developer who created the site to showcase her coding talent to potential employers.

Unfortunately it would appear not everyone found the jokey website — which went live earlier this month — amusing.

According to the New York Observer, the secondary school pupil from San Francisco, California, received a cease and desist letter from Trump’s general counsel in New York just weeks after the site was set up.

The letter, which disappointingly hasn’t been published in full, includes the line:

As I’m sure you’re aware, the Trump name is internationally known and famous.

Lucy — having taken advice from her family’s lawyer — opted to change the name of the site from “TrumpScratch.com” to “KittenFeed.com”.

However the president’s legal team is apparently still not satisfied. With the teenager claiming to have received further legal threats to which neither she nor her lawyer is yet to respond, Lucy told the newspaper:

I was going to just let this go, but I think it’s, pardon my French, fucking outrageous that the president of the United States has his team scouring the internet for sites like mine to send out cease and desists and legal action claims if we don’t shut down.

The rebranded site had received around 3,000 visitors prior to the press getting wind of the letter. The webpage has now gained widespread media coverage over the past 24 hours, with more than 50,000 people — keen to claw and scratch Trump’s face — accessing it on Tuesday alone. Trump’s lawyers are yet to respond to request for comment.

Late last year Legal Cheek reported that there were over 4,000 local, state and federal court cases where Trump — or one of his 500 or so companies — was named as a plaintiff or defendant.

At least his lawyers won’t be short of work.

Yupp if someone had a similar site about me I would also be seeking to have it removed.

I hardly doubt she made it to impress future employers.

He has bigger issues to sort out than a cat website to be honest.

So by the same measure, would you suggest the police should stop dealing with petty crime and focus on major criminals only? After all, they are a bigger issue.

Do you think there is some crime involved?

Nope, just trying to gage your perspective.

If Obama had done this then Trump’s rabid nutjob supporters would have screamed endlessly about fascism and freedom of speech. It’s always projection with them. Accuse Clinton of being corrupt while Trump literally sells himself to the Russians. Scream about freedom of speech (to be a Nazi) while threatening legal action over things hurting their feelings. Claim vote rigging while gerrymandering the entire country. Standard Republican fare.

Why does the man with orange skin and yellow hair like Russian girls to wee-wee on him?

“With the teenager claiming to have received further legal threats to which neither she nor her lawyer is yet to respond …”
Eh – grammar failure.

It’s grammatically correct; style-wise, the sentence could’ve been structured better.

Nope – read it again. The combination of neither, nor, is, yet and to would mean that they HAVE responded. It should say ‘to which neither she nor her lawyer have yet responded’ …

I bet this teenager is such an annoying, opinionated, self-righteous annoyance. I can picture her now: short, dyed hair, self-described feminist, votes for Bernie Sanders, watches ‘Girls’ and thinks Lena Dunham is a role model, attends black lives matters events, listens to NWA to exculpate her white privilege, reads Buzzfeed, has an anti-fascist icon as her Instagram profile picture…in short, the textbook liberal douche.

Neg away, Legal Cuck readers.

Wow, such powers of deduction, I can’t get anywhere near that with the facts ‘female’, ‘called Lucy’, ‘aged 17’, ‘lives in California’.

All 17 year old females called Lucy who live in Calfornia are white – that is some magic you have.

Sounds like my kind of girl!

Are the kittens named in the cease and desist letter? If not the letter may have no validity in US law

How many of the leftists fantasising about punching various right wing figures in the face have actually ever punched someone in the face?

No one ever dared do anything like that about Obama. They would have had the fascist ‘anti-fa’ thugs after them
