Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner Seeks Apology Over T-Shirt Design Controversy

Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner have lately sparked controversies over their T-shirts design featuring their own faces over images of cultural icons including Ozzy Osbourne, slain rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., Pink Floyd and The Doors.

The pricey T-shirt line comes with a price tag of $125 each and is said to be a big marketing misstep of the Kardashian family.

The reality TV celebrities have however withdrawn the T-shirts from the market a day after launching and have released an apology statement to anyone who has been offended or upset.

The Jenner sisters statement added they especially apologize to the families of the artists.

The statement read they are huge fans of the music icons and didn’t have any intention to disrespect them in anyway.

Meanwhile, wife of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne tweeted the Jenner sisters had not taken permission from them to use the images on the T-shirts that went on sale on Wednesday.

Sharon Osbourne added the family has not right to use their faces with musical icons.

Notorious B.I.G. mother Violetta Wallace said the marketing move of the Jenner sisters is disgusting and disrespectful.

B.I.G. was shot and killed in 1997 in a drive in Los Angeles.

The two sisters, 21 and 19 years old respectively, are successful models and half-sisters of Kim Kardashian. Both appear in Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV show too.

Earlier this year, a new Pepsi commercial of Kendall Jenner was pulled too following wide outrage alleging it trivialized political and civil rights protests.
