Kendall & Kylie Jenner's Vintage T-Shirts Are Making Fans Upset
To answer today's round of, "Why is the internet mad at the Kardashian/Jenner family?" I present to you Kendall and Kylie Jenner's new T-shirt collection.
The two Keeping Up with the Kardashian stars added a limited-edition vintage T-shirt collection to their Kendall + Kylie fashion line on Wednesday.
For a whopping $125 a piece, you can get Kendall's or Kylie's face or simple "KK" printed over the top of original artwork, like an image of Tupac or a Pink Floyd album cover.
The tees, which are described on the site as "one of a kind," "perfectly worn," and "hand picked," appear to be a success, judging by all the "low stock" markers on the site.
There is also a disclaimer in the description for each product that reads,
All shirts are assorted and one of a kind. What you get may vary from your friends and what is pictured on site, as each tee shirt is a vintage original.
But while some people are clearly excited by the "one of a kind" Kendall + Kylie merch, hoards of others are straight-up pissed the Jenner sisters would dare to cover up legends like Tupac and Biggie with their own faces.
The fact that Kylie Jenner's Instagram (frame and all) is covering up famous art is particularly disturbing to Twitter.
Kendall and Kylie have not addressed the backlash.
Interestingly, neither of them has promoted the shirts with an official Instagram post, although they both sent out tweets. Of course, the brand has its own social media accounts, but then again, so does Kylie Cosmetics and the young reality star pushes those products on her personal page all the time.
This isn't the first time this week a member of the Kardashian/Jenner family has sparked Twitter controversy.
Kim Kardashian came under fire for not tagging a blogger in an Instagram from her KKW Beauty launch, which led many to assume it was because she didn't like the blogger's review.
Kimmy was quick to fire back and clear the air on that one, but I think with Kendall and Kylie, the damage is already done.
Everyone's anger certainly doesn't seem to be affecting sales, though.
