Roommates, recently Kylie Jenner had social media in an uproar after she suggested that her followers donate to the GoFundMe set up for a popular celebrity makeup artist—despite the fact that she is almost worth billions. Responding to the backlash, Kylie Jenner headed straight to her Instagram to offer some clarification and to clear her name.
Kylie wrote the following message regarding the backlash:
“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 to share or donate.”
She continued, adding “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.”
Kylie Jenner’s critics apparently still aren’t onboard with her method of asking her fans to donate, as most of them are still calling her out on social media.
