This weekend, Kylie Jenner asked fans to donate to a GoFundMe for friend and celebrity makeup artist Samuel Rauda, who was undergoing surgery after a serious accident, Page Six reports.
23-year-old Jenner promoted the fundraising page on her Instagram story, which has a $120,000 goal. Under the list of top donators, “kylie jenner” apparently donated $5,000. In 2019, Forbes named Jenner the world’s “youngest self-made” billionaire at 21-years-old. Page Six reports that last spring that title had been revoked by Forbes, who noted at the time: “Kylie’s business is significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe.”
Still, Jenner’s post did not sit well with most fans, with many of them calling out Jenner for being more than capable of single-handedly funding the costs.
Kylie Jenner asking her fans to donate to a GoFundMe for her makeup artist who needs a $60,000 brain surgery after a horrible car accident when her kid has a handbag that costs $15,000 is peak 2021. Oh, but at least she donated 5K when her net worth is 900M. 🙄— I'm So Tara (@Homegrowngirl2) March 21, 2021
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.— Moumita for City Council D24 (@disruptionary) March 21, 2021
Her makeup artist apparently needs $60k. Kylie Jenner paying that would be like someone with $100k net worth sparing $6.72 to pay off a friend's medical bills.— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) March 21, 2021
