Last week Kylie and Kendall Jenner kept up their quota of controversial public stunts by releasing shirts with their faces superimposed over famous musicians including Ozzy Osbourne, the Doors, Notorious B.I.G., and Tupac. The shirts, criticized as distasteful, were sold on their site for a whopping $125 before outrage from the internet and family members of the artists pressured the Jenners to apologize and remove the product.
In an apparent response to the noise, indie rockers Arcade Fire have taken a humorous stab at the messy situation by releasing shirts with a design from their Everything Now project, placed over an image of Kendall Jenner’s face.

Tuesday night’s Arcade Fire show in London sold the winking shirts, which cost 25 pounds. All the proceeds of the shirts are going to Partners in Health, a nonprofit healthcare organization.
Arcade Fire also tweeted a photo of Kendall with a fidget spinner on Tuesday, which may be related to the joke, but we’re actually not sure.

Backlash from Notorious B.I.G.’s mother Violetta Wallace, Sharon Osbourne, and the rest of the internet torpedoed the pair’s “Rap vs. Rock” line. Critics insulted the products for their exploitation of black culture—and their tackiness. According to TMZ, the Doors are planning to sue the youngest members of the Kardashian clan.
