It seems like wherever the Jenner sisters go, drama follows. The duo is now embroiled in a new controversy over an accessory in the latest collection from their clothing line,Â Kendall + Kylie.
The sisters recently released â€œDrop Three,â€ a limited-edition collection available at Saks Fifth Avenue â€” and among the clothes and accessories is the â€œLee Leather Clutch,â€ which looks like a Chinese takeout box.
The handbag is also emblazoned with a red tiger and the words â€œKK Express Los Angeles.â€ Critics called out the duo for cultural appropriation.
This further proves Kendall and Kylie Jenner legit have NO original ideaâ€¦or culture and fashion to call their own.

Some people also noted that the clutch the sisters are selling looks suspiciously similar to Kate Spadeâ€™s â€œHello Shanghai Cruzâ€ bag from that labelâ€™s Fall 2014 collection.
They know the oyster box was created in America right? Also Kate Spade made one just like this.

Here are the two bags side by side:
The Lee leather clutch has been pulled from both the Kendall + Kylie site and Saks Fifth Avenue. However, this isnâ€™t the first time the Jenner sisters have been accused of cultural appropriation. Just last month, the reality stars were slammed for a now-deleted Instagram post that appeared to rip off Chola culture. The sisters were also accused of stealing the likenesses of musicians and rappers when they released shirts with images of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Notorious B.I.G., and Tupac â€” to name a few â€” and sold the â€œvintage shirtsâ€ at $125 a pop.
â€œI am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this,â€ wrote Biggieâ€™s mother, Voletta Wallace, in an Instagram post.Â â€œThe 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. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!â€Â
What do you think of Kendall and Kylieâ€™s â€œLee Leather Clutchâ€?
