The Jennifer Lopez Fiat Ads Also Used Footage of a TATS Cru Mural Without Permission

Those Fiat ads that featured Jennifer Lopez not really returning to the Bronx are under fire again, this time possibly legally - Bronx graffiti artists TATS Cru are pretty pissed that their copyrighted art, a mural under the Parkchester subway stop that reads "I love The Bronx," was used in the commercial without their consent. 

First, Jenny refuses to return to the block, and now this?!

"Everyone started congratulating us on the commercial and we’re like, what commercial?" Wilfredo Feliciano, an artist with the group, elaborated to the New York Post.

They have, reportedly, contacted their lawyer to discuss legal options, while a spokeswoman with Fiat said the company is looking into whether or not the image was "appropriately secured."

Does any of this actually make anyone want a Fiat?
