Oops. The Jenner sisters come under fire for misrepresenting yet another sacred part of pop culture - this time the estate of Biggie Smalls and Tupac

Oh man, someone really should have advised Kendall and Kylie Jenner about the sacredness of deceased musicians. Or, at the very least, the perils of appropriating American rap culture. Yesterday we reported that the sisters had introduced a line of "vintage" band tees under the banner of their Kendall + Kylie clothing brand. The tees featured superimposed images of the sisters laid over classic band logo from legends like Black Sabbath, The Doors, Pink Floyd, 2Pac and the like. And boy, were they wrong (and kind of ugly).

In fact, so woefully executed were the T-shirts that the resulting Greek chorus played out on Twitter, eventually reaching the families of said legends. Voletta Wallace, the mother of late '90s rapper Notorious B.I.G. was the first to snap, calling the tees "disrespectful, disgusting and exploitation at its worst!", while Sharon Osbourne, wife of Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne was next, tweeting a classic burn.

In a move reminiscent of the famous Pepsi ad debacle earlier this year, it didn't take long for Kendall to tweet an apology and swiftly pull all traces of the offending articles from the Kendall + Kylie website. (Twitter = 1. Kendall + Kylie = 0.) We fear those girls need an overhaul of their advisory committee too, because 2017 is really not shaping up to be their banner year.

At any rate, the hilarious backlash circulating the interwebs today also made me realise another thing: in times of terrorism and darkness, we really need Twitter. Click through the gallery above for the funniest responses.
