Kendall + Kylie remove $125 'vintage' T-shirts from website after backlash
Kendall + Kylie’s limited-edition 15-piece collection of “vintage” T-shirts have been removed from their website following a major social media backlash.
Instagram posts promoting the Ts have also been deleted.
The T-shirts retailed for $125 USD a pop and featured major musical influencers such as Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Pink Floyd, KISS, The Doors and Metallica, with a picture of a Jenner superimposed on top.

Despite the backlash, it seems like the shirts were still a hit with some, with many listed as being low in stock. Still, both Kendall and Kylie offered apologies on Thursday afternoon:
“These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists. We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway. The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.”
