The Jenner sisters received major backlash again on social media this Wednesday following the release of their vintage-inspired limited edition t-shirts for their Kendall + Kylie collection.
Fashionista.com reports that the line features superimposed images of themselves and their logos over pictures of music legends, Tupac Shakur (rap artist), Notorious B.I.G (rap artist) and Ozzy Osbourne (band member of heavy metal group, Black Sabbath) to name a few.
Here is one of the controversial tees...

Voletta Wallace (Notorious B.I.G’s mother) and Sharon Osbourne (Ozzy’s wife) expressed their disapproval of the collection with Voletta calling it “disrespectful” and “disgusting” in an Instagram post whilst Sharon tweeted, “Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss.”
Here are some more Twitter reactions:
It’s not the first time the sisters have come under fire. Kendall received criticism following a Pepsi ad campaign she starred in earlier this year in which she and the company were accused of implying that a Pepsi could prevent police brutality. And recently, Kylie was accused of cultural appropriation after duplicating designs from a black owned clothing brand, Plugged NYC.

The t-shirts, which retailed at $125 (R1635) each on kendall-kylie.com, have since been removed from the sisters' clothing site and a public apology has been issued on both of their Twitter accounts.
The reality TV sisters were issued with a cease and desist letter by B.I.G’s estate that has 'unwelcomed' the apology, according to a statement sent to and published by the Daily Mail U.K., which reads:
“While we appreciate that the Jenner’s have made an apology and pulled the unlawful and unauthorized items, this matter has yet to be resolved.”
Judging by this and the reaction received through social media, Kendall and Kylie can expect to be the centre of entertainment and fashion controversy for a while.
Let’s hope that Kendall and Kylie have learnt their lesson this time.
