Kendall and Kylie Jenner Got Major Backlash for These T-Shirts

“These designs were not well thought out," Kylie admits.

The more the Kardashian-Jenner family expands their retail empire, the more opportunities for controversy. This week, Kendall and Kylie Jenner learned the hard way that they probably shouldn't put their faces on Tupac tees.

The design duo rolled out so-called "vintage T-shirts" this week, according to Hypebeast, that were made to look like concert tees for bands like Pink Floyd, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Doors and rappers Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur. But Kendall and Kylie put their own stamp on the shirts with their faces and initials incorporated into the graphics. The cost for these Kendall + Kylie "vintage" tees? A cool $125.

The families of some of these music legends weren't pleased. Sharon Osborne called them out on Twitter and Biggie's mother Violetta Wallace wrote on Instagram that the shirts weren't authorized by her son's estate. She said: "This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!"

The Jenner sisters ended up pulling the shirts from their website and they removed any trace of them from their social media, too. Kylie wrote a lengthy apology, admitting that this idea wasn't very well thought out:

To recap: Kendall + Kylie, maybe focus on swimwear and sunglasses, and leave the concert tees to the musicians.
