Is Kylie Jenner downright greedy? That’s what people are discussing on social media after the makeup mogul donated $5,000 to makeup artist Samuel Rauda’s family’s $60,000 GoFundMe. Samuel was in an accident and in need of surgery and Kylie thought she would donate then ask her fans to cover the rest.
Kylie is worth more than half a billion and is often seen posing on Instagram with accessories, vehicles, wardrobes, jewelry, and other items that cost well over $60,000. Fans were furious when Kylie donated $5,000 then encouraged her fans to give of their hard-earned money to help the makeup artist. Many of Kylie’s fans are feeling the brunt of the Coronavirus pandemic and have either received or are waiting on stimulus checks to making ends meet. The idea of Kylie Jenner asking them to donate what little they have to someone they don’t know when she could have clearly covered the entire GoFundMe has left many seething.
This isn’t the first time that Kylie Jenner was out of touch with her fans who are struggling due to COVID-19.
During the height of the first wave, Kylie was under fire after posting photos of herself flaunting her wealth and traveling the world going to exotic locations while people were struggling, battling the pandemic at home.
When the Kardashians and Jenners celebrated their birthdays, they did so with large parties that defied social distancing rules. But though the Kardashians and Jenners were living life to the fullest and enjoying luxury trips around the world, it upset people that the family showed little compassion for those who were suffering.
Kylie’s request that her fans donate to the GoFundMe was slammed.
What do you think about the backlash against Kylie Jenner over the fundraiser? Do you think Kylie should have paid for Samuel Rauda’s medical bills, or do you think Kylie Jenner should have donated the money and then not asked her fans to donate as well?
