Updated Thursday, June 29, 2017, 5:12 p.m. EDT: Kendall Jenner has issued an apology on Twitter. Hopefully it’s not too late and the families of Tupac and Biggie won’t sue.
Updated Thursday, June 29, 2017, 1:21 p.m. EDT: Biggie’s mother is outraged over the Jenners’ use of her son’s image on their T-shirts:
Just when you thought the youngest spawn from the loins of Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner couldn’t stoop any lower when it comes to their lack of fashion and cultural-appropriation sense, here comes their new T-shirt line.
The Jenners introduced a line of T-shirts from their Kendall + Kylie line, and needless to say, fans of Tupac and Biggie aren’t too pleased to see their favorite rappers’ faces superimposed over the Jenners’ Instagram posts, and particularly one of the sisters’ cornrows.
And then there’s another Tupac T-shirt with the letters “KK” over his body (there’s another one with initials over his face):
Oh, and let’s not forget this Biggie T-shirt:
Like, WTF does either of these T-shirts have to do with anything “vintage” or anything the Jenners could possibly know about hip-hop and the legacy of Tupac and Biggie? I doubt their brother-in-law Kanye West actually taught them anything; he’s too busy in the sunken place.
But of course, no matter what these dolts do, they will manage to have their minions duped into buying “vintage” tees for $125.
I’d really like to know who was responsible for licensing the images of Tupac and Biggie for these T-shirts, because this mess is ridiculous. And to anyone wearing these T-shirts, you deserve to be tripped on contact.
