Photographer Michael Miller is the latest to take action against Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s now infamous celebrity inspired t-shirt collection.
Miller has filed a lawsuit against the reality stars for copy right infringement after they used a photo he took of rap legend Tupac without permission.
According to Complex, Miller’s suit claims that the Kylie + Kendall brand failed to get a clearance to use the images and “an association with Kendall is particularly problematic given that she was complicit in not one but two of the worst public relations disasters in recent memory.”
Miller isn’t alone. Sharon Osborne and Voletta Wallace have both spoken out against the collection after Ozzy Osborne and The Notorious B.I.G. were featured in the collection without any clearance.
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!!!
Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss. pic.twitter.com/BhmuUVrDBn

Troubles for the Kylie + Kendall brand doesn’t end there. Representation for The Doors have announced that they too will be pursuing legal action against Kendall and Kylie.
The t-shirt collection, that retailed for $125 a pop, has since been removed from the Kylie + Kendall brand website and Kendall Jenner has released a social media apology for the debacle.

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.
