Gary Holt Blasts Kardashian ‘Fashion Rip Offs’
Remember the time Kendall and Kylie Jenner completely disgraced rock and metal artists with their offensive line of band tees? If you've forgotten, Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt is here to remind you. He blasted the Kardashian family earlier today (Feb. 20) for being "fashion rip offs" and pointed out some hypocrisy in the process.
Holt's attack was not undeserving. Kim Kardashian recently went on a twitter rant about fashion companies stealing ideas from designers, calling it "devastating."
Holt responded to the statements in an instagram post, saying, "So says this dumb fuck from a dumb fuck family with THE longest history of ripping off designers on this earth. Like when they thought NOTHING of taking musicians album covers WITHOUT permission and slapping their faces over them for 120 dollar T shirts, or buying one of each design by a designer (paper trail leading straight to them) then copying them, down to the last thread." See the full post below.
Maybe Kardashian should have sat silent. Holt's argument is in reference to a "fashion" attempt by her younger sisters, who "designed" t-shirts that had their faces over logos of legendary rock and metal musicians like The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica and more back in 2017. The rock world was furious, even Sharon Osbourne called them out for it.
Holt has made his resentment toward the family clear multiple times before.
He even designed the shirt for sale.
