After facing a tsunami of backlash for releasing T-shirts that superimposed their faces onto hip-hop and rock legends, Kendall and Kylie Jenner are back in legal hot water.
The Doors are suing Kendall and Kylie after using the band's images to sell their now-pulled T-shirt line.
As stated in our previous post, the "vintage" T-shirts used iconic images of Tupac, Biggie, Ozzy Osbourne, Pink Floyd, and The Doors with Kendall or Kylie stenciled over them. The Jenner sisters did not get permission from any of those artists or their estates to use their images to sell the line of $125 shirts.
The Doors' lawyers issued a cease and desist letter to Kendall and Kylie's team, stating that they're now planning to sue, according to TMZ. The T-shirts supposedly "tarnish the trademark" belonging to The Doors and the estate of Jim Morrison.
It's unknown if the other musicians' estates will pursue lawsuits, but they're definitely not happy. Shortly after the T-shirts were released, Biggie's mom sounded off on 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!!!," Biggie's mom, Violetta Wallace, said in an Instagram post.
Hopefully, from now on the sisters will find fashion inspiration in ways that aren't appropriative — or illegal.
Or else their reputation could be at stake.
