There’s been a lot of chatter surrounding Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s fashion line, but, once again, it’s not exactly for the right reasons. The reality stars are coming under fire for a newly released bag on the Saks Fifth Avenue website that’s raising a lot of eyebrows.
The bag in question is a $150 handbag that’s designed to look like a Chinese takeout container. The front of the bag reads “KK Express — Los Angeles, CA” and the words are accompanied by the drawing of a tiger. Making matters worse: the purse’s name is the “Lee Clutch,” which only pushes it even further toward being totally tone deaf.
Unfortunately for the Jenners, this isn’t the first time that their fashion line has caused controversy. Back in June, the sisters received a load of backlash for selling vintage t-shirts that merged their own photos with the images of iconic rappers and rock stars like Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, and Pink Floyd without receiving permission from any of the artists’ estates.
The shirts were being sold for $125 each, and were quickly pulled from retail after two scathing statements from Sharon Osbourne and Violetta Wallace (Biggie’s mom). Just a month later, a black and white plaid button-down shirt from the Kendall + Kylie fashion line was being questioned for cultural appropriation: Shortly after the item was posted for sale, the sisters were accused of exploiting Chola culture.
The Jenners have yet to release a statement about the purse but it has apparently already been pulled from the website.
