A Tupac Photographer is Suing Kylie and Kendall Jenner Over Their T-Shirts
So...we're guessing theapology wasn't enough?
Famed photographer Michael Miller, who's shot everyone from Tupac to Kendrick Lamar, is suing Kylie and Kendall Jenner over their disastrous vintage T-Shirt line they were going to try and sell.
The T-shirts featured the girls' faces over the photos of iconic acts like the Notorious B.I.G., Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Tupac. The shirt that featured Tupac used an image that Miller shot and owned the copyright to:
\u201cSo who's gonna start flaming Kendall and Kylie for putting their trash initials over Tupac's face?\u201d— keely \ud83e\udd5d (@keely \ud83e\udd5d) 1498670727
Miller's lawyer Scott Alan Burroughs filed the lawsuit. He says that the sisters "at no times notified Miller that they intended to exploit his photography, let alone obtained his authorization...an association with Kendall is particularly problematic given that she was complicit in not one but two of the worst public relations disasters in recent memory."
One of those "public relations disasters" was the infamous Pepsi commercial.
These shirts have been a disaster for the Jenners. They were panned the second images of the shirts hit the 'Net. Voletta Wallace, Biggie's mother; Sharon Osbourne and Suge Knight's son Jacobwrote scathing posts on social media.
The Jenners soon pulled the shirts, which were going to cost $125, and apologized. It doesn't seem like that will be enough.
