Arcade Fire are selling their own version of the controversial Kendall and Kylie Jenner band t-shirts.
Kendall and sister Kylie Jenner were widely mocked last week over a new fashion line which appropriated a range of classic rock and rap t-shirts. Merch from the likes of Pink Floyd, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne and Notorious BIG had been edited for the pair’s new range, with the Jenners’ likenesses displayed across the classic artwork. The shirts were originally being sold for £125 each via their web store, but were later removed after the stars were sent cease and desist letters.
Arcade Fire’s merch stand at their London show this evening (July 4) included one of the stencils of Kendall Jenner featured in the offending t-shirts with a logo of their new album title ‘Everything Now’ emblazoned on top. See in the tweet below. All proceeds from the shirt sales go to non-profit health care organisation Partners in Health.
