Oh no she didn't.

Bella Thorne has been accused of copying Pussy Riot's designs. The Disney actress released a collection of colourful ski masks with her fashion brand, Filthy Fangs. The "Watch Your B**tch Ski Mask" โ€“ which comes in neon green and pink โ€“ was almost sold out just 20 minutes after it dropped.

But Pussy Riot thought the masks looked a little too much like the ones they famously wear for protest. The Russian feminist group are known for rocking brightly coloured ski masks onstage and off, and they wasted no time in calling out Bella on Twitter. Who knew ski masks were such a touchy subject?

"Just saw recent @bellathorne's merch.. look EXACTLY like our colorful feminist ski masks," they tweeted. "we hope it's not merely an act of appropriation and bella indeed will join pussy riot and protest with us on the red square."

Some thought Bella totally completely copied Pussy Riot too and piled in on her.

However, some agreed that while the masks looked similar, it probably didn't fall under "appropriation." I mean, Pussy Riot didn't exactly invent the ski mask.

Of course, Bella caught wind of all the drama and hit back โ€“ is she mad or not, though?

Now, this wouldn't be the first time Bella's been accused of ripping off someone else's merch. Back in August, Filthy Fangs released eyeshadow palettes that looked a little like ones being sold by another beauty brand, Juvia's Place.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Juviaโ€™s Place owner Chichi Eburu said it was "unacceptable" but Bella just brushed it off. She concluded that they probably had the same manufacturer and joked she'd be copying another palette. Well, you know what they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...
