Kendall, Kylie Jenner Pull Vintage T-Shirt Line Following Backlash
Kylie and Kendall Jenner have pulled their vintage band T-Shirt line following the backlash.
The pair unveiled their line which included photos of some of the most recognized artists (living and deceased) on a black-colored T-shirt, with the sisters’ faces plastered on top of them. The line, which consisted of“Rap vs. Rock” tees ignited millions of fans from around the world expressing their disgust over the designs.
One of the designs featured the face of The late Notorious BIG’s face, and his mother Voletta Wallace, was not happy about it.
“I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this,” she captioned a photo on Instagram, adding, “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!!!”
Kendall took to Twitter to release a statement following the criticism.
She wrote: “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. “We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from theses mistakes, and again we are very sorry.”
