Kylie Jenner Criticized For Being Uncharitable
Kylie Jenner was called out for donating $5,000 to a GoFundMe for makeup artist Sam Rauda’s medical expense fund. Obviously it’s because she is filthy rich and fans expect her to be more charitable. Then the beauty industry icon put his GoFundMe page in her Instagram Story to encourage her fans to donate too.
Rauda’s family wrote on his GoFundMe page that ” he underwent major surgery on Sunday.” He recently got into an accident over the weekend. The donated money will help cover his medical expenses. In fact, the family raised $100,000 of the goal of $120,000.
Kylie Jenner Breaks Her Silence
Kylie broke her silence on social media this past week, clearing the air about her relationship with Rauda. She exerted that he’s not her MUA, but mentioned that the two have worked together in the past.
Kylie Jenner wrote:
“I feel it’s important for me to clear up this false narrative that I’ve asked fans for money and am not paying for my makeup artist’s medical bills.
Sam isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately we don’t have a personal relationship anymore but I have worked with him a few years ago and think he’s the sweetest. I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s gofundme and I called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam. After learning in more detail about the accident it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was set at 10k. They had already raised 6k so I put it in 5k to reach their original goal and thought I’d post on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled the share or donate. I don’t know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative of all the donations, prayers, and love towards Sam.
Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let’s all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let’s encourage each other to help.”
The Calm After The Social Media Storm
Kylie reportedly spent 10 times the donated amount by paying $50,000 for her sister Kendall to get to New York.
Fans clapped back by saying it’s not Kylie’s responsibility to take care of someone who isn’t close to her.
