Tim Tebow is so vain, he probably thinks this article is about him. Nah, just kidding. This article is about him, and the Cubby Tees “My Jesus” t-shirt that he’s currently reportedly considering suing over is just as much about him as this article is.
As reported by TMZ, last month, Tebow’s lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to Cubby Tees threatening legal action if the company didn’t stop peddling “My Jesus” t-shirts that Tebow feels play off his fame. And while the t-shirts don’t actually bear Tebow’s name or likeness, apparently the mere mention of Jesus coupled with the Jets logo being on the shirt was enough to get him all riled up.
So what do the shirts that have shaken the otherwise unflappable God’s gift to football look like? Check it out:
For what it’s worth, on the company’s site, Cubby Tees made it a point to specifically note that Tebow does not endorse their product. As per the description (via ProFootballTalk, because the site is down):
“This fun design is not officially endorsed by New York’s backup quarterback or the Son of God, but plays off the themes of Tebow’s faith and his new team.”
Seems clear enough. Per TMZ, the company has no plans to stop selling this shirt. And seeing as the site is down at the time of this article being written, it’s safe to say that they’ve probably gotten more action in the last hour than they have since the company’s inception.
Way to make them famous, Tebow.
