Wunderground is an EDM parody website that posts articles like "'Just One More Wank Could Kill Me' Admits Avicii" and "Stealing Other People's Cigarette Lighters at Parties Now Punishable By Death." If these headlines weren't enough to make you clue in on the joke, Wundergound also has a disclaimer stating that all the content is "fictionalized," "satirical," and in no way should be "interpreted as an actual record of events."

The satirical website recently started an Indiegogo campaign which offered their readers funny apparel including bags, t-shirts, and sweatshirts. One of the shirts pokes fun at Steve Aoki, claiming that he is a "shit DJ."

To be fair, the shirt is pretty funny… but Steve doesn't agree. His lawyers sent the Wunderground team a cease-and-desist letter threatening to sue if the website did not destroy the shirts (which were never even manufactured). Wunderground owner Mikey Maguire replied to Steve's lawyer in a hilarious manner apologizing for the late reply due to his uncontrollable laughter both day and night which has made him miss weddings, christenings, and even the birth of his own child. You can read the full letter here.

Do you think Wunderground went too far? Should Steve Aoki and his team lighten up and take the joke for what it is... a joke?
