Kendall + Kylie Slammed with a Lawsuit Over Their Controversial Line of Graphic Tees
Outrage. That pretty much sums up the collective feeling after Kendall and Kylie dropped their line of graphic tees last week. But now s**t has really hit the fan. Lawyers for The Doors, a band depicted in the collection, have issued a cease and desist and are now threatening to sue the sisters for using their image without permission.
Since the launch last week, Kendall and Kylie have pulled the entire line and apologized to the artists and families involved including Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Tupac, Biggie Smalls and Pink Floyd.
Twitter reactions have been pretty unanimous in their disapproval.
These vintage tees were such a horrible idea. Who thought it would be a good idea to put Kendall & Kylie's pictures over these icons?
