To be honest, I saw this story this morning and didn’t even want to entertain it with a blog post, but after thinking about it more, I want to politely tell Kylie Jenner to go fuck herself.
I mean, the audacity…
For those of you that are not familiar with the pop culture bullshit popping off on Twitter right now, celebrity makeup artist Samuel Rauda, who has worked for Jenner in the past, was seriously injured in an accident and has recently undergone a major surgery. Kylie shared a link to his GoFundMe with the caption:
“May God watch over you and protect you @makeupbysamuel. Everyone take a moment to say a prayer for Sam who got into an accident this past weekend. And swipe up to visit his families’ go fund me.”
She also donated a measly $5,000 herself.
Naturally, the internet took exception to the fact that someone as rich as Jenner would ask their fans to donate to a GoFundMe. I mean, she could pay all of his medical bills five times over with the loose change she finds in her couch.
Not to mention, the “self-made billionaire” could only manage to scrounge up five thousand bucks? You know damn well the socks she has on right now probably cost more than five thousand dollars. It’s just utterly absurd.
And thankfully, Twitter let her hear it.
Here’s a quick look at the backlash:
Kylie Jenner, who makes $19K/hr asking for $$$ from her fans to help her make up artist pay for a $60,000 surgery, is an excellent example of why we need universal healthcare. Even billionaire employers like Kylie and Walmart aren’t willing to pay for their employees' healthcare.
It’s the fact that Kylie Jenner owns purses that cost more than her close friends emergency brain surgery and she’s out here begging poor people to donate to his Go Fund Me page……… that doesn’t sit right with me.
So Kylie Jenner who apparently earns over $450k A DAY and is a billionaire shared the 60k gofundme of her friend who got in an accident for us poor people to donate to? Celebrities are a different breed.
