Watch out, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Biggie Smalls’ mother wants to take the shirts right off of your backs.

Voletta Wallace, the mother of slain rapper Biggie Smalls, tore into the reality TV duo on Thursday over a T-shirt featuring Kendall Jenner’s face superimposed over an image of her deceased son.

Wallace made it abundantly clear that she did not approve of the use of her son’s image.

“I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this,” Wallace wrote on Instagram. “The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me.”

“I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt,” Wallace continued of the shirt, offered as part of the Jenners’ collection of vintage-inspired T-shirts. “This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!”

To further emphasize the point, Wallace posted an image of the shirt with a red “X” drawn over it, with the message, “THIS PRODUCT HAS NO AFFILIATION TO THE NOTORIOUS B,I,G. ESTATE. The estate was never contacted about using The Likeness of Biggie.”

This isn’t the first time that Kendall Jenner, in particular, has drawn criticism for he commercial endeavors. Earlier this year, she was eviscerated on social media for starring in a protest-themed Pepsi ad, which critics said appropriated protest culture to hawk soda.

The widespread backlash prompted Pepsi to pull the ad.
