The Yellowstone logo drama is really quite bizarre

We've seen plenty of logo disputes over the years, and a surprising number of them have involved members of the entertainment industry. From Kanye vs Walmart to Drake vs Belroy, it seems brands are often wont to take on celebrities engaging in extra curricular activities. But this is the first time we've seen two figures attached to the same hit show go to war over a logo.

The star showrunner of hit Paramount show Yellowstone is suing the star of hit Paramount show Yellowstone for "trademark infringement". The former claims that the latter's logo for his coffee brand is too similar to the logo for the former's coffee brand. So: two people, two coffee brands, two logos, one TV show. Got it (I think).
