 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.
