Kendall And Kylie Jenner Pull Offensive T-Shirt Line That Defaced Musical Icons

Who approved this?

Kendall And Kylie Jenner launched a line of vintage T-shirts that modified portraits and logos of rock and rap legends, and the Internet combusted. As Time points out, the personalization included the K.K. initials, a glamor shot of Kendall's face and a silkscreen reproduction of an Instagram of Kylie in a bikini over images of Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Ozzy Osbourne, The Doors, Pink Floyd and others. They were for sale for a whopping $125 per shirt, and sold out within hours.


Voletta Wallace, Notorious BIG’s mother, threatened legal action if the shirts weren’t pulled. “I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this,” Wallace’s post read. “The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my son Christopher to sell a T-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!”


Sharon Osbourne reflected that: “Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know … lip gloss.”


The girls folded. They issued an apology and pulled the line off their site. "These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists,” they wrote.


Sigh. The world is a weird place.
