The stars of Keeping Up With The Kardashians have caused a lot of debate over their reactions to the COVID-19 outbreak. Previously known as the Coronavirus, the outbreak has grown to the point of a global pandemic.

People around the world have been airing their reactions to COVID-19 online. Sharing their tips for self-isolation. And in some cases, sharing photos that lead to outrage and backlash. Kylie Jenners has done both. But it looks like she's trying to make up for that.

In the earlier days of the COVID-19 outbreak, Kylie upset her social media followers by posting a photo of herself from inside her Kylie Cosmetics headquarters. Some people had already begun staying home at that time, though self-quarantine was not nearly as frequent as it is now.

In the photo, Kylie appeared to suck on her finger. People had an immediate reaction to this pose, as the CDC has been cautioning not to touch the mouth or face at this time.

Self-Isolation And Paying Rent

Since then, Kylie has gotten on board with the experts saying we need to self-isolate and be careful about spreading the virus. The makeup mogul has been encouraging her followers on social media to stay home as often as possible. She shared a video in which she credited her pregnancy with Stormi Webster for preparing her for quarantine, as she stayed inside for months at that time.

However, some of Kylie's followers were not very impressed with her messages. Some commenters insisted that they needed to go out in order to afford their bills and badgered Kylie to pay their rent for them.

Shutting Down Her Empire

Despite her photos from inside her Kylie Cosmetics headquarters, the reality TV star has decided to shut down production of her makeup line. Shoppers will have access to place orders, but shipments may not be filled until things calm down and return to normal. Kylie Skin production will remain open for now, as that is maintained through a separate headquarters.

Kim Kardashian West also shut down production of her makeup company, KKW. Like Kylie, Kim will still take orders, but shipments might be delayed.

Donating For Doctors

Well, Kylie's followers who insisted that she pay up in this time of a global pandemic are getting their wish ... sort of. While the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has yet to pay anyone's rent, she is donating $1 million to COVID-19 relief.

Kylie's donation is intended to go toward the procurement of masks and other medical supplies that have been in desperately short supply since the outbreak began growing in the United States. Kylie's doctor who helped deliver baby Stormi Webster, Dr. Thais Aliabadi, thanked her for her donation.
