The self-made billionaire and cosmetic mogul donated $1 million to numerous relief organizations in Australia to make things right after receiving negative attention she didn’t expect.
22-year-old Kylie Jenner contributed one day after landing in the hot seat for her posts that many fans deemed insensitive.
Her one post read ‘this breaks my heart’ below a photo of an injured koala with the text ‘over half a BILLION animals’ being killed by bushfires. Her next photo was ‘baby pink toes’ showing from Louis Vuitton slippers that are made from mink fur.
A source told People about the posts, saying it is just an unfortunate coincidence.
The insider said: “That post was completely unintentional. Kylie stands behind her desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation the fires have caused.”
However, the issues for the cosmetic mogul did not end there as she also shared another photo of herself sitting in front of a fireplace and wrote ‘find ur fire’ with a yellow love heart and a fire emoji.
When people started commenting the disaster happening in Australia, Kylie quickly edited the caption to ‘night out’ and removed the fire emoji.
“If anyone needs fire… you can have ours – Australia,” one comment read.
Kylie is not the only KUWTK star engaged in controversy regarding the situation. Her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kim Kardashian-West hit back at trolls who slammed the family for their apparent lack of concern for the circumstances in Australia.
The 39-year-old hit back at a hater that claimed the family didn’t donate a dime.
The user wrote: “Nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires and not donate even a penny,” tagging the family members.
Kim replied: “Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything.”
But one commented: “A girl selling her nudes online has almost made 17k to help with the Australian fires and the Kardashians only been tweeting emojis do ya’ll see why I’m angry.”
Another said: “You publicize everything else tho AND STILL WEAR FUR…AND TAKE PRIVATE JETS…wild.”
Khloe defended Kim by retweeting her sister’s post before including a bible quote: “Modern King James Version. Therefore when you do your merciful deeds, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may have glory from men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward.”
