- A fan called Kim Kardashian and her sisters out on social media, accusing them of not donating to the Australia wildfire relief
- However, Kim wasn't having any of it
- The reality TV star hit back at the fan, saying trolls should not assume things they knew nothing about
Kim Kardashian-West took to social media to set the record straight regarding her ‘donations’ to the Australian wildfire relief efforts on Sunday night.
According to People.com, a fan accused the 39-year-old reality star and her family of not donating to the cause.
“Nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires and not donate even a penny,” wrote the fan, who has since deleted the tweet. The fan tagged Kim along with her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Kim then clapped back, saying just because they hadn’t spoken out about an issue, it didn’t mean they weren’t doing their part.
“Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think what we donated to and to think we have to publicise everything,” tweeted Kim.
Kim didn’t reveal the details of her donation, however she joins a growing list of international celebs who have pledged to help those affected by the wildfires which have claimed at least 17 people’s lives and burned more than 11 million acres since they were sparked in September.
Ecologists from the University of Sydney believe almost half a billion total mammals, birds and reptiles have also died in the fires since September. More than 130 separate fires continue to burn.
Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that the world is looking on in worry as scorching fires are devastating Australia - millions of hectares of land have been destroyed.
According to The Guardian, 8.4 million hectares have been burnt and at least 25 people have died as a result of the fires. Millions of animals are estimated to have perished in the blazes as well and extensive emergency rescue efforts are underway.
As the country continues to fight the blazing natural disaster, international celebs have been donating money for assistance.
