Kendall and Kylie Jenner pull 'distasteful' T-shirt line after deluge of backlash.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner have landed themselves in a burning lake of hot water after being forced to pull their newly released T-shirt line amid a downpour of criticism.

The T-shirts, released through the Kendall + Kylie brand, featured images of the girls’ faces superimposed over prints of Metallica, The Doors, Kiss and late rappers Tupac and Biggie Smalls.

Fans were quick to criticise the sisters for the designs, with one writing, “these artists are icons and you plastered your narcissistic faces on them in an attempt to rip off your fans”.


Biggie Smalls’ mother, Voletta Wallace, was deeply offended, voicing her own disappointment on Instagram.

“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!!! (sic)”

Julian K Petty, a lawyer for the estate of Biggie Smalls, served a cease-and-desist letter to the Jenners.

According to TMZ, he wrote:“This is misappropriation at its finest. I’m curious to hear the justification. I’m even more curious to hear the proposed resolution.”

In the wake of fierce backlash, both sisters tweeted out an apology, writing they would pull the line immediately and apologise to the families of the artists who expressed their distaste.

“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 any way. The t-shirts have been pulled from retail and all images removed.

“We will use this opportunity to learn from these mistakes, and again, we are very sorry,” the apology read.
