It’s always hard to keep up with the Kardashian-Jenners and the drama that surrounds the famous family. So, it’s no surprise that Kim and Khloé Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner have already found themselves at the center of some backlash. Take a look at the family’s high-profile blunders of 2017. (Kourtney, keep up the good work!)

Kendall Jenner’s tip snafu

Did Kendall Jenner stiff her bartender? According to Brooklyn bar and restaurant Baby’s All Right, the millionaire model cheaped out on her $24 bill. The restaurant posted a photo of the receipt with the tip field left blank. Jenner, 21, responded to the accusation on Twitter, writing, “damn, i guess next time we won’t tip in cash.” Baby’s All Right wasn’t done trolling the reality star yet. “‘I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.’ – Nietzsche #nocashtip,” a since-deleted Instagram post read. This isn’t the first dust-up Jenner has had with a restaurant. (Photo: Gotham/GC Images)

Kendall and Kylie’s vintage t-shirts

Kendall and Kylie Jenner found themselves in hot water with music royalty. The reality stars decided to sell “vintage” T-shirts with their faces superimposed over icons, such as Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, and Ozzy Osbourne, but they did not get permission from the families. The Doors issued a cease-and-desist, while many others threatened the same thing. Kendall and Kylie pulled their T-shirts and issued an apology, saying, “These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists.” (Photo: Getty images, insets: Kendall + Kylie)

Khloe Kardashian’s bodysuit drama

Nothing good about this! Khloé Kardashian was accused of ripping off Destiney Bleu’s designs for her new line of Good American’s bodysuits. The reality star is not taking the accusations lightly and has hired power attorney Marty Singer to fight back. Khloé has denied the accusations and claims Destiney Bleu is trying to “get her 15 minutes of fame” and has “outrageously defamed Good American and Ms. Kardashian.” We’ll wait for the jury to decide this one.

Kendall Jenner and Fyre Festival

Kendall Jenner’s motto must be… if I don’t acknowledge it, did it really happen? The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was one of the many models to promote the doomed Fyre Festival where concertgoers had the and ultimately saw no music. While Bella Hadid apologized for promoting a mess of an event, Kendall stayed mum. (Photo: Samir Hussein/WireImage)

Kim Kardashian’s blackface line

Kim Kardashian was accused of using blackface in a promotional photo to promote her new makeup line. However, the star said it wasn’t what it looked like (literally). “I would obviously never want to offend anyone… I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off,” Kardashian later explained. “We saw the problem, and we adapted and changed right away. Definitely I have learned from it.” (Photo: KKW Beauty)

Kim’s Manchester misshap

The Queen of Social Media has had a few Twitter missteps this year. Kim Kardashian took heat for an insensitive tweet following the Manchester attack at Ariana Grande’s concert. Like many, Kim sent her love to Grande, but the way she did it rubbed people the wrong way. “Concerts are supposed to be a place where u [sic] can let loose & have fun. So scary not to feel safe in this world. @arianagrande I love you,” Kim said. The problem? She posted a photo of herself (front and center) with Ariana from one of Kanye’s concert. Kim deleted the tweet and picture and then tweeted, “I’m praying for everyone in Manchester. This is truly so senseless & heart breaking. (Photo: Kim Kardashian/Twitter)

Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi Ad

One of the biggest controversial stories of the year involved Kendall Jenner and Pepsi. The model participated in the brand’s “Moments” campaign and starred in an ad that appeared to borrow imagery from the Black Lives Matter movement. “Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly, we missed the mark and apologize,” the company said in a statement before pulling the commercial. Kendall has yet to publicly comment on the fiasco, but she did wipe any mentions of Pepsi from her social media accounts. (Photo: Pepsi)
