It has been one day since celebrity sisters Kendall and Kylie unveiled a collection of “vintage” t-shirts that featured selfies of the two superimposed over iconic designs for musicians like the Notorious B.I.G. and Metallica.
An immediate media backlash occurred when these shirts were released, including a threatened lawsuit from Biggie’s mother Violetta Wallace.
They also received a cease and desist notice from The Doors, and a public admonition from Sharon Osbourne.
The Jenners immediately cleaned out their social media feeds of the designs and issued out long apologies for the collection.
“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. We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in [sic] anyway. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.”
The internet was split between two reactions, some were supportive and applauded the reality stars for taking reparative action and others were angry about the collection being released in the first place.
The sisters seemed to have learned their lesson, and continue to learn from their ongoing missteps.
