Original Story (6/30/17 at 9:30 a.m. ET):
Michael Jackson’s daughter seemingly slammed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars for using the late Notorious B.I.G.'s face on T-shirts for their latest Kendall + Kylie Collection.
The supermodel and makeup mogul have withdrawn the controversial shirts, which superimposed images of the sisters over portraits of music icons like B.I.G, Tupac Shakur, and many others.
The Star actress, who did not mention the reality stars by name, reportedly condemned the shirts on Twitter.
"As a huge fan of zeppelin, the doors, floyd.. i mean these bands literally helped shape who i am today. i can't condone this 'fashion,’” she shared.

"Legends like these who completely changed our world today, not just the music world, should be respected and honored. not turned into this.”

She continued, "Pink floyd is not chanel. led zeppelin is not michael kors. metallica is not givenchy. don't get it twisted. #bandsnotbrands #RESPECTMUSIC [sic]."
Meanwhile, the 21-year-old and 19-year-old issued a joint statement on their social media accounts and apologized profusely for the designs.
"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,” the said.
"We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in any way.”
They continued, "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."
But the estate of Notorious B.I.G. — who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997 — said the apology was not good enough.
"While we appreciate that the Jenners have made an apology and pulled the unlawful and unauthorized items, this matter has yet to be resolved,” the family said in a statement.
Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, also took to Instagram to express her distaste over the controversial shirts.
“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,” she captioned the photo.
“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!!!”
Sharon Osbourne, whose husband Ozzy Osbourne was also featured on a shirt, blasted the sisters on social media.
“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss,” she tweeted.
