Kendall and Kylie Jenner are confronting real reaction for ruining notable pictures of rappers and rock stars for their clothing line — possibly without permission.
Only one of the disputable photos put on a T-shirt highlights a nearby of Kendall wearing loop hoops with a picture of The Notorious B.I.G. behind her, which led the legendary rapper’s mother to make it clear that she was never contacted about using her son’s likeness.
Biggie’s mom, Voletta Wallace, pummeled the sisters for the lack of regard they showed the family of the late hip hops great.
“The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me,” she wrote on Instagram. “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!!!”
A moment shirt likewise demonstrated a meagerly clad Instagram post of Kylie Jenner laid over a picture of Tupac Shakur with “1996”, the year of his death, written on the bottom.
On Wednesday, the two unscripted television stars propelled a line of “vintage” T-shirts as part of their Kendall + Kylie clothing line. Each oversized frock sells for a whopping $125 a piece — and they already claim to be in low stock. Another design shows off the Kendall + Kylie logo, two lowercase “k” letters, atop a photo of Shakur with the line “Only God Can Judge Me” and another component a similar logo composed on top of Pink Floyd’s “The Division Bell” collection cover. Different specialists highlighted on the shirts incorporate Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin. All of the shirts have since been removed the site.
It is unclear if the sisters obtained the rights to the images from any of the other stars before selling them for profit through their joint clothing line, which launched in January 2016.
Reps for the clothing line and the sisters did not immediately respond to the Daily News’ requests for clarification.
Music fans took to Twitter on Thursday to rebuke the unscripted television stars for their disrespectful take on some of the world’s most iconic artists.
“Don’t ever disrespect Tupac by putting your face on him. He’s a legend. You’re temporary,” one client composed.
Another additional, “the doors didn’t make a name for themselves to have Kendall Jenner put her face on their merch.”
I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this. 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!!!
The dubious design decision comes months after Kendall, 21, turned into the focal point of a national level headed discussion over a Pepsi promotion highlighting the model fathoming a racially charged challenge by giving over a container of Pepsi to a cop. The soda organization later pulled the promotion after the immediate backlash.
Kendall has regularly sported vintage band tees previously, including Guns N’ Roses, Slayer and other classic rock outfits.
