Kendall and Kylie Jenner (ugh.),
came under fire for once again, trying to prove their relevance. But why is it that every attempt they make, they end up offending a whole group of people? The Jenners released a collection of “vintage band tees”, with the likes of legendary rappers, Biggie and Tupac as well as other well-known bands on them. However, it didn’t stop there. The girls decided to print their faces over these iconic artists in pink and yellow. Now they are facing multiple lawsuits, and have been confronted by family members and estates.
1.Whose idea was this? 2. Why did they think it was okay? The disrespect. Putting your face on top of important musicians, some of which have died, is not cool or edgy, it’s downright disrespectful. Their actions symbolize how important they think they are, and how much influence they believe they have. What they fail to understand is how false their glorified importance is. They have and continue to ride on the backs of others to get where they are. Now they are facing multiple lawsuits, and have been confronted by family members
Dear Kendall and Kylie,
Taking something that is not yours, and claiming it is stealing. And the number of ideas and things that you have stolen and made a profit off of is simply too much.
“Jail braids” or “Boxer braids” are cornrows. I grew up wearing them, and back then they were only affiliated with ghetto black people. Now because of you, it’s cool and chic and cute. Same with full lips and wide hips and big butts. All things once shamed. now sought after because of you guys.
This must make you guys feel special, giving you a sense of false relevance. Leading you two to believe that anything can become trendy or important once one of you or both of you prove it is. Like protesting or solving social justice issues with Pepsi.
Here’s the thing, just because you’re rich and white, just because you have huge followings and a large audience doesn’t give you the right to take things you didn’t come up with because you assume once you put your name on it everyone will love it. Sooner or later people will catch up to your bull.
So on behalf of us people who do and create things first for the right reasons, stop stealing and claiming our ideas for the wrong ones.
