Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner’s fashion line recently released a few misguided t-shirts designs, some featuring the late rapper Tupac Shakur’s face with the sisters’ images superimposed atop the original photography. The girls were instantly hit with a lawsuit from the photographer who shot the picture of Tupac, who notes that the reality TV starlets didn’t get permission to use the image.
According to USA Today, the girls only sold a grand total of two shirts. Naturally, the brand used this as an excuse to weasel its way out of bad publicity. “The allegations made are completely false and the lawsuit is baseless,” the Kendall + Kylie brand statement reads. “There has been no infringement or violation of anyone’s rights.”
The shirts have since been pulled from the market following widespread backlash.
