Kendall and Kylie Jenner are under fire for a trio of T-shirts that feature imagery of the late Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
Apparently, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters launched a series of “Vintage T-shirts” online on Wednesday (June 28), which feature their imagery and logos superimposed over classic images of the late rap icons.
Following the release, Biggie’s mom Voletta Wallace took to social media, ripping both sisters, calling the use of the images “disrespectful and exploitation at its worst”. “The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me,” Voletta 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.”
Voletta isn’t the only one to call out the sisters. Veteran photographer Mike Miller, who shot a number of iconic Tupac photos, was shocked. He took to Instagram with the following message:
Kendall and Kylie were hawking the Tupac and Biggie tees for $125 a pop. Following the backlash, the tees were removed from the website.
