Kendall and Kylie Jenner are back at it again and no, we don’t mean another reality show.    

The sisters, who were already having a bad year, released a new collection limited-edition clothing line this week. One of the items for their Kendall & Kyle label, sold exclusively through Saks Fifth Avenue, has gained a lot of negative attention.    

Unfortunately, the Jenner duo thought creating a handbag modeled after a Chinese takeout box was a good idea: news flash, it wasn’t.    

The $150 handbag has a visible tiger graphic on the front with “KK Express – Los Angeles, CA” written in bold, red lettering. According to Huffington Post, the Jenner sisters have also added $45 fortune cookie coin purse to their line.    

Huffington Post managed to snag a photo of the handbag before the product image disappeared from Saks’s website:


This, of course, is not the first time the Jenner sisters have been accused of culture appropriation.    

In June, Kendall and Kylie came under fire for displaying their faces over images of iconic musicians including Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. 

The reality stars crossed another line last month after posting an outfit on Instagram that appropriated the Mexican Cholo/Chola culture in the Latinx community.    

You would think the Jenners have learned their lesson by now, but maybe that next soft drink commercial will set them straight.
