On yesterday’s episode of “The Internet Drags Kylie and Kendall Jenner“, Twitter was not having it with the launch of the latest t-shirts from the sisters’ Kendall+Kylie line. The shirts are “one of a kind, individually-hand picked vintage t-shirts” that feature images of the reality stars or their initials printed on top of The Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac, KISS, Metallica and Pink Floyd .
Are we supposed to gather from these shirts that Kendall + Kylie belong in the same lane as music LEGENDS? Either way, Twitter was not happy about the shirts.

Kendall & Kylie put their big ass heads on a t-shirt w/ rap legends just to make a profit off girls who don't even know a Tupac/Biggie song

If a t-shirt you could get from a thrift shop for six bucks of music legends with a screen printed bikini-clad Jenner on it selling for $125 isn’t offensive enough, then please direct your attention to today’s episode of the “The Internet Drags Kylie and Kendall Jenner staring Voletta Wallace“. The mother of the late and great Biggie took to Instagram (yes, she has an Instagram, so go follow her) to let everyone know how offensive she finds the shirts. Not only are the girls profiting off of her deceased son’s image, no one from the Jenner krew reached out to Voletta Wallace or anyone from Biggie’s estate about using his image for the shirt.
The Jenner and Kardashian sisters find themselves constantly in hot water for some of the choices they make, like the boxer braids fiasco of 2016, so we asked ourselves if wearing cornrows is considered cultural appropriation.
