The popular Marseille-based influencer Henni is well-known in the French football community and has established a kebab shop. He claims that his Klüb kebab is created with “baker round bread, as round as Mbappé’s skull.”

On behalf of KMA, the firm Mbappés formed to manage all of his sponsors, products, and image rights, Delphine Verheyden, his lawyer, sent Mohamed Henni a certified letter on Wednesday morning, according to ESPN’s Julien Lawrence. The letter stated:

Mr Henni uses Kylian Mbappe’s name for commercial and promotional ends, without having obtained explicit prior consent.

If Henni fails to obtain Mbappe’s consent for commercial usage, they risk legal action. The influencer has eight days to remove Mbappe’s name from the menu. Meanwhile, Henni responded:

A player of this level has the time to think about me. He [Mbappe] is using his time and money to attack me. I am not hurting anyone, I am a humorist. Are you not embarrassed? Launching a legal complaint for absolutely nothing?”
