Kendall and Kylie Jenner withdraw ‘disrespectful’ music icon T-shirts after fierce backlash

Reality TV celebrities Kendall and Kylie Jenner apologised on Thursday after causing an uproar for selling pricey T-shirts featuring their faces over images of famed music groups and artists including The Doors, Pink Floyd, Ozzy Osbourne and slain rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

In the second recent marketing misstep involving members of the Kardashian family, Kendall and Kylie Jenner said they had withdrawn their $125 T-shirt line from sale a day after it was launched.

These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologise to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists,” the Jenner sisters said in a statement.

We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway,” they added.

The move followed outrage from relatives of some of the artists, and cease and desist letters from other musicians over unauthorised use of the images.

Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know … lip gloss,” Sharon Osbourne, the wife of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, wrote on Twitter.

Violetta Wallace, the mother of Notorious B.I.G, accused the sisters of exploitation and said no one had contacted the rapper’s estate for permission.

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!!!” Wallace said in an Instagram post.

Notorious B.I.G, also known as Biggie Smalls or Christopher Wallace, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997.


Kylie Jenner and Tyga Are Sexy Skeletons at ‘Dead Dinner’ Halloween Bash

Halloween is her favorite holiday. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to see that Kylie Jenner went all out on Friday night, hosting a “dead dinner” for family and friends with her beau Tyga.

The couple dressed as skeletons for the Halloween weekend dinner celebration — appeared to make use of Jenner’s cosmetics collection by painting their faces ghostly white for the event.

Jenner, 19, wore a sheer dress with black flower cutouts covering her up. Her blonde locks gelled back from her face let her deadly contour and blood red-lips shine.

Tyga, 26, dressed in all black — letting his striking makeup do the talking. Unlike Jenner, he punched up the fright factor with blacked out eyes and razor-sharp teeth.

Kendall Jenner was there too — wearing a low cut latex ensemble that appeared to be less skeleton-inspired and more goth-inspired. The 20-year-old model wore her hair up to show off her black choker, and donned thigh-high fishnets and a ridiculously-high black-platform shoes.

As always, Kylie documented the evening on Snapchat.

Her house — which has been decorated for the Oct. 31-holiday since the end of September — was completely transformed for the event.


Kylie reveals profits from lip color Smile will go to charity that helps kids with cleft palates

New shade: Kylie Jenner took to Snapchat on Friday to talk about her lip color, Smile, from her Kylie cosmetics line

It’s safe to say she’s had a chaotic week after her half-brother, Rob Kardashian, tweeted out her phone number to the rest of the world.
However, Kylie Jenner has decided to keep the issue away from social media after the 29-year-old reality star apologized to her for a miscommunication.
The 19-year-old left it all behind as she took to Snapchat on Friday to share her newly revealed lip shade from her booming cosmetics business.

After starting the day cooking bacon and waffles with Caitlyn Jenner, the reality star told her fans that a new shade from her lip kit is dropping Monday in honor of World Smile Day.

While it is a lighter pink color than her other glosses, Smile – as Kylie titled it – is unique because of its partnership with Smile Train, a nonprofit that supports cleft palate surgery for children all over the world.
The sister of Kendall Jenner announced that 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sales of the limited edition color will be given to the nonprofit organization.
