Kylie and Kendall Jenner are catching lots of heat after they released t-shirts that featured their faces with the likes of rappers Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.
Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, took to Instagram to shame the reality stars after reportedly sending the Jenner girls a cease and desist.
Wallace shared a photo of one of the pictures that showed Kylie with Biggie behind her along with a statement.
“This product has no affiliation to the Notorious estate. The estate was never contacted about using The Likeness of Biggie.”
She also went off on Kylie and Kendall in her Instagram caption.
“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. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of my 2pac and my son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!”
Suge Knight also had a few words for the Jenners and rapper Tyga.
“I didn't believe it when I first saw it but I have to agree with @volettawallace. It’s bad business and highly disrespectful. These are the same people who wear braids and call it a new style but then call a black girl with the same style ratchet. Who also needs to be checked is @tyga for stealing the Death Row logo and putting it on his last kings clothing line. There’s your warning.”
Kylie and Kendall both released statements that confirmed the t-shirts were removed from the site.
“These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize 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. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.”
