The reality TV stars came under fire after superimposing their own faces over those of rap legends including Tupac and Biggie.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been accused of cultural appropriation after releasing their new range of vintage tees.

The sisters are facing heavy criticism for their new designs, which involve popular Instagram photos of the social media stars overlaid over the faces of iconic musicians.

Each shirt features a photo of either Kendall or Kylie, or the initials 'KK', superimposed over the top of artists including Tupac, Biggie, Pink Floyd, Metallica and The Doors.

The images sparked outrage across the Internet, with users branding the move as "disappointing", "disrespectful" and "sad".

One shirt features a controversial image of Kylie donning cornrows - which was previously criticized for appropriating black culture - over Pac's face.

The 'One Of One' T-shirts are currently selling for $125.

Kendall and Kylie are yet to respond to the criticism.

Interestingly, this isn't the first time the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been accused of cultural appropriation.

Earlier this month, Kylie was called out after allegedly copying the designs of another brand, whilst stealing a look previously worn by Destiny's Child.

In addition, older sister Kim was recently targeted after Internet users claimed she used blackface to promote her new makeup line KKW Beauty, which she has since denied.
