NEW YORK (AP) — Kendall and Kylie Jenner apologized Thursday for “vintage” T-shirts superimposing their images with those of famous musicians, including Ozzy Osbourne, Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

The sisters began selling the shirts Wednesday online for $125 each as part of their Kendall + Kylie brand. Sales of the shirts were halted and the apology issued after Osbourne’s wife, Sharon Osbourne, and Voletta Wallace, the mother of the late Notorious B.I.G complained of appropriation on social media.

“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know.lip gloss,” Osbourne tweeted.

On Instagram, Wallace put a huge red X through the shirt featuring her rap legend son and made herself clear:

 

 

“I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this. The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!”

Emails and telephone calls Friday to representatives for the sisters were not immediately returned. The shirts were taken down and Kylie Jenner tweeted, in part: “These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists.”

    I think a phone call and a pretty hefty check to the estates of Pac and Biggie would have made this outcome much better for all involved.

  2. Okay, Okay – – so let’s give them credit for having the sense to apologize and take them down but where were their marketing people, they should have known better than these two dimwits and why on earth did they need to do this? Why not sell a t-shirt with their butts super imposed or a t-shirt with their old daddy and their new Caitlyn super imposed over themselves – anything but what they did. Mrs Wallace was within her rights to call them out and they probably sold some of those shirts – so pay her her royalties .

    Parasites, the kartrashian’s only talents are o their knees and back. Stupid black men are too dumb to see that

    Since they were so against Blac China for using their name because of copywriting, I’m sure they knew they were using copywrited images! These whores are so disrespectful. Mrs. Wallace should slap their silly, whorish asses back to reality!

    I am so sick of the Kardashians and Jenners!!! They think they can do ANYTHING and get away with it. All they do is use black men to get money. Well not this time, you little whores in training. I am so glad Ms. Wallace and Mrs. Osbourne spoke up about it and against it.

        I do not mean to be rude but that is exactly what all of them are and their mother is their pimp. She groomed those girls from day one to be whores. She is the one that leaked out Kim’s sex tape with Ray J. What kind of a mother would do such a thing??

    “…who in their right mind would pay $125 for a t-shir…t”
    Rich dummies, and a lot of poor dummies that want to something they’re not. Happens 275 thousand times a day all day.

  7. WTF You know what! Smh. You have to surround yourself with folks smarter than you and if you are the smartest one in your camp, you need a new camp. Somebody should have told these two dummies they didn’t have the right to use these images without permission or a contract. This is that white privilege bulls**t, white folks think they can do anything they want and get away with it. Not today! The nerve of these two hoochies.

    The disrespect of these young ladies as well as the whole family knows no depth. In what universe did they think they could sell these t-shirts and no one not even the estates of Biggie and Pac would not say anything? I also would like to know who in their right mind would pay $125 for a t-shirt with their faces on the front. I guess there is a sucker born everyday! I glad Ms. Wallace spoke up and put those people in their place. Next step should be a cease and desist order to stop them in their tracks and to turn over any profits they’ve receive thus far from the silly folks who has purchased them. SMDH!

    You lying, skank ##tch, to the contrary, the designs were very well thought out. You thought you had devised another way to ride the backs of Black folks to make more money for your hoeish asses. Leave Black folks alone and try to come up with something on your own. Oh, you can’t – -you don’t have the wear with all to do that!!!!!

    These bitches see the black man as nothing more than an exploitation opportunity, but black men are too stupid to know that they’re being used as part of the Kartrashian brand, a slave straight off the auction block.
