Taking someones ashes without permission should pretty obviously be something that could create friction.

"I was at the memorial and the gray cool-aid tasted terrible."

1. They sold out to the company that owns Bed Bath and Beyond,
do you feel like that was Masks vision?
Not to mention the shareholders are mid lawsuit with them, because they didn't vote or didn't do something legal for that sale.

2. They STOLE the founder's ashes and were sued over it.

Its a curcus.

I haven't heard about this. Can you enlighten me?

I did find it odd that after Mask passed the website started to carry a ton of new, none clothing products and a suit was listed as the CEO or something like that on the site. I wondered a bit if the other two were selling out to coorporate America, which I am not saying they did, nor do I think would be wrong for them to do. Unfortunately with Mask's passing came the loss of his input into the direction of the company he started so it was almost given then things would change some.

Mainly I find it odd that anyone would pass out someone's ashes. I doubt there was a conversation where Mask directed them to do this and he most on some level had trusted his sister to make calls he would approve of or otherwise she wouldn't he would had signed the power of attorney, which if I recall the story I read did say that she was granted this in his directives. I think if he had kids the ashes should have gone to someone who could care from the ashes until the children were old enough to decide what to do with them, not passed out to a handful of people who in a pinch might try to sell them on ebay.

They were sold to Authentic Brands Group LLC,
I was wrong though it wasn't Bed Bath and Beyond,
it was Linens n Things.
