Just when critics thought that Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner had learned from their many mistakes, the sisters wound up pissing off people again with their penchant for cultural appropriation. The sisters are being accused of being culture vultures once again after debuting a new product from their latest collection inspired by Chola style.

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.

Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner are making waves with their latest drop of Kendall + Kylie merch. The sisters’ fashion collaboration has launched a new collection of vintage “rock tees” with a very Jenner twist.
The girls are taking t-shirts from classic rock acts like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Metallica and more and super-imposing their initials and selfies over them. The t-shirts, which look like they were mis-printed at the factory, are selling for $125 each.
It’s not clear from the Kendall + Kylie website whether or not the band t-shirts being ripped off are actually licensed or not. While adding pics of their faces or two K’s in a gothic script might qualify as fair use, it’ll be up to the lawyers for these bands or their labels to make that decision.
For now, the shirts are already listed as “Low Stock” on the sales website. Apparently, people love the idea of Kendall and Kylie taking old t-shirts and adding their faces.
Check out pics of the new shirts below. Pick one up here before they sell out or get taken down due to a cease-and-desist letter.
