As you may have heard, Kendall and Kylie Jenner aren’t having the greatest week, and they have no one to blame but themselves.
For some reason, the sisters thought it would be a good idea to sell t-shirts emblazoned with trademarked images of artists like Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., and Ozzy Osbourne.
To make matters worse, KJ and KJ superimposed photos of themselves over the images over the legendary artists.
It was like some sort of bizarre experiment in subliminal advertising:
“If we make people think of us when they’re looking at iconic artists,” the sisters seemed to be saying, “they’ll mistakenly think that we’re super talented, too!”
Needless to say, the plan didn’t work out.
First, Kendall and Kylie were slammed by Biggie’s mom in a social media tirade for the ages.
Shortly thereafter, the Jenners were destroyed by the Osbournes, as both Sharon and Kelly took to Twitter to verbally tear them new ones.
Now, relatives of famous musicians who weren’t directly affected by Kendall and Kylie’s idiocy are getting in on the fun:
Paris Jackson is roughly Kylie’s age and two years younger than Kendall, so hopefully her stern words about the importance of respecting one’s musical elders will hit home especially hard:
“As a huge fan of zeppelin, the doors, Floyd.. I mean these bands literally helped shape who I am today. I can’t condone this ‘fashion,'” Jackson wrote on Twitter.
“Legends like these who completely changed our world today, not just the music world, should be respected and honored. not turned into this.”
“Pink Floyd is not Chanel. Led Zeppelin is not Michael Kors.
Boom. Hopefully Kendall and Kylie heard the deafening sound of that mic drop.
The sisters issued the following apology on their social media pages yesterday, but it could be a case of too little, too late:
“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,” reads the statement.
“We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in any way. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from theses mistakes, and again we are very sorry.”
Biggie’s estate has already rejected the apology, and no one else seems to be in any hurry to accept it.
It’ll be interesting to see how many PR crises these girls can endure.
