It appears Kendall and Kylie Jenner just can’t go anything right.
After getting major backlash for trying to hock a line of T-shirts that featured their own faces superimposed over classic photos of the late Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., the sisters are under fire again.
This week, Kendall and Kylie ripped a fashion item directly from cholo/chola culture — a flannel and are trying to sell it with a ridiculous $145 price tag.
A flannel you ask? Flannels are worn by many. Yes, but the girls went wrong was with the way they marketed it — posting an image posted on the official Instagram account for their Kendall + Kylie line. As seen below, it features a model rocking the shirt in a very distinct style that angered many. The post has since been deleted.
Following the IG post, the internet swarmed on the Jenner sisters, calling it offensive and calling them “culture vultures”.

If they're going to appropriate culture they could at least be like "hey guys our new clothing line is inspired by latinx culture!"

Following the controversy over their line of Tupac and Biggie tees, they were hit with a lawsuit, which they called “baseless”, despite issuing what they claimed was a sincere apology.
