The Jenner sisters of the Kardashian clan are drawing massive flak for their line of ‘vintage’ style T-shirts. The T-shirts have Kendall and Kylie’s pictures superimposed on photos of legendary musicians like Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G and Ozzy Osborne.
Criticism is pouring in on social media as well as offline for their expensive $125 tees. Voletta Wallace, mother of Notorious B.I.G, slammed the K sisters for using her son’s pictures on the tees and said that the decision of making such T-shirts in the first place was “disgusting and disrespectful”.

Wallace claimed that Kendall and Kylie never approached her for permission to use the photos. She went ahead and accused the sisters of exploiting the death of her son for profit.
As the controversy erupted, Kendall and Kylie issued an apology for their “mistake” and took the tees back from the line as the first batch was sold out.

Not just that, the two sisters will now be facing legal action as a renowned celebrity photographer has now allegedly sued the two sisters for copyright infringement by using the singers’ pictures on Kendall + Kylie brand T-shirts that were originally his clicks. Like Wallace, even Miller was never approached by Kendall and Kylie for permission to use the pictures whose rights were reserved to him, reported TMZ.
The Jenners sisters have been in trouble many times for copying the work of artists without permission. In November last year, a popular Instagram make-up artist, Vlaga Haggerty, accused Kylie of copying ideas for her beauty range. Before that, Kylie was also accused of stealing a camouflage pattern for her bikini line from a collection designed by Plugged NYC.
