The clothes might be incredible but people are definitely not happy!
Listen, we all love the Jenners okay. Their amaze make up sets (thank you Kylie), the fact that they're kick-ass business women and of course they're actually a lot of fun on KUWTK. But they keep making silly mistakes don't they?!
The pair just can't seem to catch a break at the moment. Whether it is choosing the wrong skin colour for their emojis or printing their faces on top of legendary rap artists on t-shirts, the sisters aren't having the best of luck.
And now they've pushed the buttons of the 'chola culture' with the most recent shirt they're selling, check it out:

When we —Latinas and Xicanas— dress in flannels and big pants, we get profiled and frowned upon. But when they do it, it's ‘fashion.’”
BTW, Kylie unfollowed a LOT of people and here's the reason why...
