Kylie Jenner Responds to Makeup Artist GoFundMe Backlash

  • Kylie Jenner sparked a social media outcry after asking her fans to donate to a GoFundMe for makeup artist Samuel Rauda’s medical expenses.
  • Many social media users pointed out Jenner’s extreme wealth and her ability to cover the expenses herself.
  • Jenner addressed the backlash on her Instagram Story Monday, saying it arose from a “false narrative.”

Kylie Jenner sparked an uproar on social media last week after asking her fans to donate to a GoFundMe for the medical expenses of celebrity makeup artist Samuel Rauda, who required major surgery after an accident. Jenner, who donated $5,000, shared a link to the fundraiser on her Instagram Story, writing, “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.”

Jenner’s post triggered a major outcry on social media, with many pointing out the reality star’s extreme wealth (after previously branding her “the world’s youngest self-made billionaire,” Forbes now pegs her net worth at $700 million) and her ability to cover Rauda’s medical expenses without seeking donations from her fans. “wait so kylie jenner’s make up artist got into a car accident and needed $60k for emergency brain surgery and she asked her fans to donate???? and then only donated $5,000 when she’s a literal billionaire? the wrong people have money,” one viral tweet read.
