Kylie Jenner’s representative confirmed that she has donated $1 million to the Australia wildfire relief efforts.
The 22-year-old beauty mogul posted several photos to her Instagram story regarding the sad incident in Australia, including an image of a koala alongside the caption: “Over half a BILLION animals have been killed in Australia. This breaks my heart.”
But she was branded ‘hypocrite’ as she shared another Instagram Story of herself wearing a pink pair of Louis Vuitton mink slippers just hours later.
“Kylie posting about how she is feeling heartbroken about the death of animals in Australia due to fire and then posting her wearing a slipper made of mink’s fur is the biggest hypocrisy of 2020…,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Another said: “I don’t understand how Kylie Jenner can post about the poor animals dying in the Australian fires and then two snaps later post a picture of her wearing real mink fur shoes.”
One wrote: ‘’kylie Jenner posting on insta about how many animals have died in the bush fires and then immediately afterwards posting pics of her MINK FUR LV slides… that billion dollars didn’t buy taste clearly.’’
“Kylie Jenner posting about saving the koalas and then posting her real mink fur slippers… make it make sense!?!” another added.
After a lot of criticism, a representative for Kylie confirmed that the reality star has donated one million US dollars towards the various relief efforts helping to fight the Australian fires.
A source told People magazine that the “post was completely unintentional.”
“Kylie stands behind her desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation the fires have caused,” the insider added.
Kylie has not officially announced the donation but her sister Kim revealed on Twitter that her family had made donations to relief efforts.
A social media user said, “Nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires & not donate even a penny” in a since-deleted tweet.
Kim responded to the tweet saying, “Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything.”
