Jennifer Lopez is ‘Jenny from the Block’ no more. After it was made public that the superstar never so much as set foot in her old hood while filming her new Fiat car commercial, a local graffiti group decided to sue the singer for using their copyrighted art in the ad — proving that even the locals don’t think of Lopez as their friendly neighbor.

Famed South Bronx graffiti crew TATS Cru are putting things in the court’s hands given that Lopez didn’t ask for permission to use their trademarked material. A wall of TATS Cru graffiti appears on a wall under the Bruckner Expressway and the No. 6 train station as the ‘American Idol’ judge is driving through.

Allegedly, the commercial producers even edited the Cru’s work, changing what once read “I love the Bronx” to a heart in place of “love” in the ad. While Chrysler, who produces the Fiat, has yet to respond, TATS member Wilfredo Feliciano did, telling the New York Times, “That’s enough. This has happened to us in the past, and it’s not cool. We had to do something about it.”

Best keep driving, J. Lo.
