Kendall and Kylie Jenner are huge fans of the band tee comeback, so much that the sisters decided to create their own line of vintage tees. Retailing at $125 for each t-shirt, they dropped the new collection on their website last week, immediately generating major buzz…but not in a good way.
The duo layered photos of themselves or their K + K logos over iconic images of late rappers Tupac and Biggie, and also on top of the album art of legendary rock bands like Metallica, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and The Doors. Several users on social media, including Biggie's mom, Voletta Wallace, immediately spoke out about the “disrespect” they feel lies behind the shirts.
“The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me,” Wallace captioned on the ‘gram with a giant red “X” over the girls’ design. “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!”
