Supporters of Revok and street art started a campaign to boycott the company, prompting H&M to drop the suit and issue an apology. “We should have acted differently in our approach to this matter,” the company said in a statement
. “It was never our intention to set a precedent concerning public art or to influence the debate on the legality of street art. As a result, we are withdrawing the complaint filed in court.”
Now, there’s a happy ending to the legal fracas. Revok and H&M are making an undisclosed, “significant contribution” to City Year, Living Arts Detroit, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
’s (MOCAD) Teen Council, and the Empowerment Plan—all Detroit-based arts organizations.
“Detroit is a special place to me, where I spent several years living and working, and a city that will always feel like home,” Revok wrote on Instagram.
