Biggie Smalls’ estate has rejected Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s apology after they used the late music icon’s image on their T-shirt line.
The Jenner sisters sparked an uproar after promoting a line of shirts that merged images of the likes of Biggie, Tupac, Metallica, Kiss, and The Doors alongside images of the girls themselves. The T-shirts retailed online at $125.
After seeing the line, the late rapper’s estate fired off a cease and desist, ordering them to stop selling the T-shirts by 5pm on Friday or face a lawsuit.
Kendall later issued an apology and all merchandise was pulled from shelves. However, it looks like Biggie’s estate is still not satisfied.
In a statement to Billboard, they shared:
“While we appreciate that the Jenners have made an apology and pulled the unlawful and unauthorised items, this matter has yet to be resolved.”
Earlier in the day, Biggie’s mum Voletta Wallace took to social media to slam the sisters for using the late star’s likeness on their range.
“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!”
Sharon Osbourne also slammed Kendall and Kylie Jenner over their controversial T-shirt range that features Ozzy Osbourne and other rock and rap music icons.
Sharon Osbourne, who tweeted:
“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know… lip gloss.”
Kelly Osbourne also took a swipe at Kendall and Kylie with a photoshopped picture of the girls and Kelly sticking her middle finger up.
