Kendall & Kylie Jenner Pull Controversial Music Tees After Copping It From Sharon Osbourne & Notorious B.I.G.’s MumWritten by Emmy Mack on June 30, 2017
ORIGINAL STORY: Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been forced to yank their controversial new line of ‘vintage’ music T-shirts from sale after deservedly copping hell from basically everyone who’s an actual fan of vintage music.
ICYMI: In a move which even a braindead monkey could have predicted would piss off fans of every band involved, the Jenner sisters decided it would be a good idea to print a new line of retro style tees featuring iconic rap and metal acts like Pink Floyd, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne and Biggie Smalls, but with their own faces superimposed over the top.

Yep. That’s legendary rapper Tupac spliced with a sexy snap from Ky-Ky’s Insty. #gag
Anyway, in a shock development, music fans were ~Not Happy Jenner~, and leading the charge against the sacrilegious threads were some the relos of the very artists whose iconic visages they’d so wilfully defiled — Sharon Osbourne and Notorious B.I.G.’s mum, Voletta.
“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons,” the Princess Of Darkness sassily tweeted. “Stick to what you know… lip gloss.”

Meanwhile, Voletta Wallace, mum of late rap legend Biggie, gave the pair a much less tongue-in-cheek lashing via 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,” she raged.
“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 Kardashian sibs were originally hocking these abominations for around AUD$212 apiece, but have since pulled them from sale via their official web store.
Kendall has also taken to Instagram to apologise for the monumental balls-up, writing:
“These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologise 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… We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.”
Again guys, braindead monkey.
