Voletta Wallace Slams Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s Biggie and 2Pac T-Shirts: ‘Exploitation at its Worst!’
After they got dragged on social media for having the gall to plaster their faces over The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac on t-shirts, Kendall and Kylie Jenner are rightfully catching it from Biggie's mother, Voletta Wallace.
Wallace went on Instagram to let the Jenners know exactly how she feels about them using her son and 2Pac to sell $125 t-shirts, and she didn't hold back.
"I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this," she captioned a photo of the controversial shirts with a red "X" through them. "The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me."
She went on to say that she doesn't appreciate having her son and 2Pac's image and legacy exploited for profit.
"I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt," she continued. "This is disrespectful , disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!"
Indeed. The t-shirts are no longer available for sell, though it's unclear whether it's because they sold out or because they caught wind of the backlash and pulled them. We can't imagine who'd want to rock a Kylie-Biggie shirt, so it's like the latter.
Of course, this isn't the first time the Jenners or other members of the Kardashian clique have been called out for cultural appropriation and just general tone deafness and dumbassery. Seriously, they couldn't have sold shirts with their faces plastered on A$AP Rocky or Tyga? Or Travis Scott? That would've at least been a little more appropriate.
Maybe someone should get Kendall a Pepsi to smooth this whole thing over.
