Move over Jesus, Tebow's in town

Tim Tebow is suing the makers of a tshirt for using Tebow’s likeness without his permission.  Here are the shirts.

I see the word “my” and the word “Jesus” and a Jesus fish…but no “Tim” or “Tebow” or Tebow’s face.

There can be only one explanation: Tim Tebow is Jesus, and instead of wrathful and powerful the second coming is whiny and annoying.

How full of yourself do you have to be to think you have a copyright on Jesus?

    Actually, the claim mentioned is not accurate.

    From the link ( to the cease and desist letter shows a copy of what is / was on the website which does mentioned Tebow (or some variation of his name) 4 times. Not sure if it is enough to sue over it or not, but I don’t see anything about it being due to Tebow’s likeness at all.

  • OverlappingMagisteria

    Well, sure. Tebow wouldn’t want anybody thinking that he endorses Jesus or anything.

    Sorry, Tim, but the website doesn’t make it look like YOU are endorsing the shirts, so no dice. This falls just short of a Lanhan Act violation. I do think it’s enough to hire expensive lawyers and use up federal court time!

    Ostentatious Christian also an ostentatious asshole? Shocker.

  • Joven

    Wouldnt Jesus say that Tebow should have turned the other cheek?

    And that once Tebow sued, the shirt maker should have taken the shirt off the market, and given Tebow a free hoodie or something? (“And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.”)

    Or does that not count anymore because its in the New Testa…oh, wait. Well its not like Jesus said it himse…hmm.

    Streisand Effect, meet Tim Tebow. What his Timmy and his lawyers have done is increase the company’s sales by a couple of orders of magnitude.

  • IslandBrewer

    Damn! I want to make some crappy product and get sued by an oversensitive celebrity over it!

  • Zinc Avenger

    Go Tebow! Sue anyone who performs aggravatingly ostentatious obsequious prayer in public too, while you’re at it! For too long have the hypocrites infringed on your shtick!

    Until he sells all his possessions and gives the proceeds to the poor, he remains a hypocrite. Some might give him a pass on that but I’ll pass. He makes mistakes, future mistakes and pass mistakes. Next he will be suing the Kardashians for being famous for no reason at all.

    Tebow’s just mad because he didn’t think of the design, first.

  • grumpyoldfart

    I’ll bet Tebow didn’t even know the letter was written. I’ll bet it was his agent, hoping to do a deal to rake in a bit more cash for the boy, and then collect a percentage from it).
