Tupac and Biggie are among the musicians whose shirts have been re-branded
Just a couple months after her controversial Pepsi ad, Kendall Jenner is getting hammered again on social media, this time with her sister, Kylie Jenner.
The reality stars released a selection of limited edition “vintage” music T-shirts via their Kendall + Kylie clothing collection. Each one features either the Kendall and Kylie logo or their own faces superimposed on album cover art for artists like The Notorious B.I.G., Pink Floyd, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin. One of the shirts features an Instagram image of Kylie in a bikini over a photo of Tupac. “2 PAC 1971-1996” is at the bottom, below the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s Instagram stats.
It’s become fodder for users on Twitter, with some describing the move as “trash,” “racism,” and “s—.” One wrote of a shirt with Kendall’s face plastered on imagery for The Doors, “Jim Morrison did not die for this s—.”
At the same time, the shirts are already going out of stock. Hours after the collection was revealed, a top featuring Kendall’s face superimposed over the image of Tupac and Biggie’s “Trust Nobody” was already in dwindling supply. Now it appears to be either sold out or deleted from the website, though the image was screenshot by Elle magazine. (Reps for Kendall and Kylie did not immediately reply to EW’s requests for comment.)
Each one sells for $125, and tees with Pink Floyd and Metallica are also in low stock, according to the Jenners’ online store.
