Kylie Jenner has been feeling the burn after fans criticized her for not donating to the Australian Fire Relief. Recently, Jenner rectified this by donating $1 million to the cause as reported by PopCulture. This is far from the first time that the Kardashians/Jenners have been accused of acting selfishly in regards to their wealth.
Before donating, Jenner was condemned by fans in two separate instances. People magazine has confirmed that star did, in fact, donate the $1 million that she claimed to donate.
Kylie posted a picture wearing a fishnet bodysuit. The caption initially read “find ur fire.” She then changed the caption to “night out” after backlash from fans.
“Imagine being so wealthy, with money the majority of humankind will never comprehend. Us lowly working class are donating our money, why can’t you use your money for good, for positive change? Sure, keep much of it for yourself and that lifestyle you wish to uphold, but why not do more for the world,” one user wrote.
“Be someone young people can look up to for their amazing humanitarian work, not superficial stuff like fashion and makeup, things that mean nothing in the end. Be someone in this world, someone with meaning.”
“HEY YOUNGEST “SELF MADE” BILLIONARE, why dont you go donate and stop being a waste ?,” another user put bluntly.
“That post was completely unintentional,” a source said to People in Jenner’s defense. “Kylie stands behind her desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation the fires have caused.”
Jenner received criticism during another instance when she reposted sister Kim Kardashian’s Instagram story raising awareness for the animals perishing in the Australian wildfires. “this breaks my heart,” Jenner wrote along with the posts. Fans are criticizing for being hypocritical since Jenner hadn’t yet donated.
“Nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires & not donate even a penny,” one user tweeted.
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter to respond to the tweet directed at her family.
“nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything,” Kim tweeted.
Khloé Kardashian had also tweeted., “Good deeds should be done with intention and not for attention. We are all blessed to be able to bless others even if it is in the slightest way. But we do not need to be boastful about that. Be boastful in regards to teaching others how they may be able to help as well.”
