Another week, another display of disrespect. The youngest Kardashian-Jenners just debuted the newest product from their Kendall + Kylie line. What they did this time is unforgivable: they put their faces and initials on top of Tupac Shakur‘s face and are selling them at $125 a shirt. They also put their faces on top of a shirt featuring both Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. You can see stills below:
Kylie and Kendall really put their faces/logos overtop Biggie and Pac pictures and are trying to sell it for $125. I don't even have words. pic.twitter.com/IhbJMkUg2E

Every week we hear a new story on how the Kardashian clan steal from African-American artists, designers and — perhaps most importantly — women and manage to get away with it. How can anyone explain this? Again: they are making a profit on black culture. Of the many critics, Voletta Wallace (Biggie’s mother) isn’t here for the violation and let it be known via social media:
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!!!
The Kardashian fans felt Diddy disrespected them when he cut the two sisters out of a past image, and now we see why. How do you disrespect the culture that you keep stealing from? How do you disrespect hip-hop royalty? Enough is enough!
