Arcade Fire are selling their own version of those controversial band t-shirts created by Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
The t-shirts in question faced a wrath of criticism after the Jenner duo released some horrendous prints of their own face merged with music icons of the past.
The likes of Pink Floyd, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, The Doors all Ozzy Osbourne made the cut as a new fashion statement. However, Ozbourne’s wife Sharon, took to Twitter to slap them down: “Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss,” she said.
Now, Arcade Fire, whose new album is taking on a whole new sarcastic capitalist tone with the emergence of branded fidget spinners and mockingly interactive music video, have mockingly released their own branded Jenner shirts as spotted at one of their intimate London shows.
Of the original shirts, Kendall Jenner moved to apologise for the potential offence caused: “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,” she said.
“We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway.
“The t-shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry.”
