Kendall and Kylie Jenner have apologised after their new T-shirt collection attracted widespread criticism.

The sisters superimposed their faces over images of legendary musicians such as Biggie Smalls, Tupac and Pink Floyd, which were then printed on T-shirts. The collection received huge backlash by the public and also by Biggie Smalls' mother, Voletta Wallace, who described the range as "disrespectful", "disgusting" and "exploitative". The line was removed soon after and all related social media posts deleted.

The Jenners have since said that they never meant to offend anyone and pledged to learn from the experience. The statement was shared first by Kylie Jenner, and then retweeted by sister Kendall.

"These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologise to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists," Kylie wrote.

The T-shirts were described as "one of a kind" and sold for for $125 each.

In April, Kendall Jenner found herself the centre of international backlash after she starred in a Pepsi advert after it was accused of co-opting the Black Lives Matter movement.
