Not only did Kylie and Kendall Jenner outrage pretty much everyone when they issued a line of T-shirts slapping their own images over the iconic visages of Tupac Shakur, Ozzy Osbourne and the Notorious B.I.G. – now they could face a lawsuit.

I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!”
