- Kylie's makeup artist friend Samuel Rauda was involved in an accident and needed medical help
- The cosmetics queen shared the story asking fans to donate to his medical bills and also gave out R73k of her own
- With the bill being around R870k, some felt she could have just handled it all instead of "asking for money" because she has more than enough
Reality TV star Kylie Jenner has found herself on the end of bashing on social media after making a request that some felt was unwarranted.
The mother of one shared a picture of a makeup artist, Samuel Rauda - believed to be the one who does her makeup - who recently got involved in an accident and was hospitalised.
Kylie urged fans to visit the family's Go Fund Me page and donate funds as the artist reportedly needed around R870k for surgery.
According to The Sun, Kylie donated around R73k to the drive and, in the post, wished Rauda protection from God as he fights for his life in hospital.
However, fans felt her move was disrespectful, being she is believed to be have been the richest earner in the world in 2020 and has a whopping R13 billion to her name.
Others even pointed out the kind of luxuries she rewards her daughter, wondering why she could not offer to pay and instead 'beg' for cash.
Here are some of the reactions online:
Kylie previously made headlines after she was slammed for her daughter Stormi's birthday party. Kylie has always thrown over-the-top birthday parties for Stormi but the circumstances had to change due to Covid-19 regulations. She still threw a party though but kept the guest list much smaller.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star posted the details of Stormi's party on her Instagram stories and fans couldn't help but notice that the table she laid out was for a big group. A few attendees were not wearing face masks, further angering the public.
According to a report by Glamour Magazine, it is not that Kylie threw a party during a pandemic that angered people. It was rather that her family is in South Carolina, which is the epicentre of Covid-19 in the United States.
