Volette Wallace, the mother of the Notorious B.I.G. (aka Christopher Wallace) has responded to the Kendall and Kylie clothing line t-shirts featuring her dead son's face partially covered by Instagrams of the sisters with all the fury of a mother defending her child.
She wrote: "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!!!"
Kylie and Kendall have yet to respond to the controversy.
Kendall and Kylie's new klothing line has been taking the e-commerce world by storm, but the addition of their vintage
"rock" tees, for which the superstar sisters superimposed their picture and initials over the faces of beloved music legends, immediately garnered a whole heap of online backlash.
Each of the t-shirts go for $125 a pop, have a wee peruse through.
The Internet came down swift and hard on those choices, particularly the reproduction of Tupac and Biggie's photographs, which serve as backgrounds for a screenshot of Kylie on vacation in Costa Rica and Kendall in massive hoop earrings. These were perceived to be the most offensive, given the two beloved hip-hop icons are deceased.
So who's gonna start flaming Kendall and Kylie for putting their trash initials over Tupac's face? https://t.co/0O6VhI9mUE
