Kylie and Kendall Jenner have come under fire from the likes of Sharon Osbourne and the mother of Christopher Wallace (AKA Notorious B.I.G.) for their new t-shirt range.
The new line of t-shirts features Kylie and Kendall's portraits overlaying classic artwork of the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Notorious B.I.G., Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Metallica and The Doors. The shirts were originally on sale for £125 on their website but have since been removed following the backlash.
Voletta Wallace was the first to call out the pair on social media, writing in an Instagram post that estate of Christopher Wallace was not contacted about using his likeness on their t-shirts.
I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this.Â Â The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me.Â Â I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt.Â Â This is disrespectful , disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!
Wallace called the t-shirts "disrespectful , disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!"
Sharon Osbourne took to Twitter to voice her displeasure at the t-shirts, saying the girls hadn't earned the right to be associated with musical icons.
Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss. pic.twitter.com/BhmuUVrDBn

Kendall Jenner posted an apology on her Twitter account last night after the t-shirts had been pulled from retail on their website.

"We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway." she wrote.
This is of course not the first social media backlash that Kendall has been involved in this year. Back in April she was called out for the now infamous Pepsi ad that she starred in.
Like the Pepsi and Fyre contrveries, this mistep is likely to blow over quite quickly. It seems the pair can make as many missteps as they like without the Kardashian/Jenner brand taking any major damage.
