Kylie Jenner: billionaire, make-up mogul, meme queen and award-winning vocalist. OK, so the last one isn’t true but it could be her next achievement thanks to her instantly iconic Rise and Shine bop (if you have no idea what we’re talking about, catch up here).
Kylie sent a cease and desist letter to a family selling T-shirts that say “rise and shine.” They’ve been selling the shirts since 2017 though.

And, as usual when the Kardashian-Jenners are involved, rumours were circulating in Hollywood and beyond of controversy surrounding the meme – specifically accusing Kylie of sending cease and desist letters to an Australian family business over their use of ‘Rise and Shine’. Of course, haters quickly flooded her Instagram comments with cries of “how could you?!” and now the youngest Jenner sister has responded.
guys, please don’t believe everything you read. I have not sent any Rise and Shine cease and desist letters. Rise and Shine was an unexpected moment.. I had a lot of fun with it, and I have laughed so hard seeing everyone’s memes since the video came out a few weeks ago..— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) November 10, 2019
“Guys, please don’t believe everything you read. I have not sent any Rise and Shine cease and desist letters” Kylie tweeted. The small business supposedly being attacked confirmed the rumours were untrue by sharing a statement on Facebook which read “We are in no way cooperating in this drama and will be closing the website down until this all blows over. We currently do not and have never had a problem with Kylie Jenner”.
