Kylie Jenner has been criticised on Twitter after asking fans to donate to a GoFundMe page set up to support her makeup artist’s brain surgery.
Celebrity makeup artist Samuel Rauda was in a accident and earlier this month and as a result is undergoing major surgery.
A GoFundMe page has been set up in his name to raise money, with the description reading: “Your donations will help cover the cost of his medical expenses and what’s to come.”
On Thursday, Jenner shared a photograph of Rauda on her Instagram Story alongside 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.”
Currently, the GoFundMe page has received $97,418 (£70,236) and reveals a user by the name of “kyliejenner” as having donated $5,000.
But Jenner’s fans have criticised the beauty industry mogul for calling on others to donate to Rauda, pointing out her own substantial net worth, which Forbes currently estimates at $700m.
“Kylie Jenner on IG said swipe up to visit her friend’s Go Fund Me, and someone said why doesn’t she ‘GO FUND HIM’,” tweeted one person.
Another added: “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.”
Many people pointed out that Jenner has previously been labelled a billionaire by Forbes, though the publication later relinquished the title.
“Why is Kylie Jenner asking fans to pay her for friends brain surgery through GoFundMe when she’s a literal billionare?!?!? I’m honestly confused,” tweeted one person.
The American television reality show that shot Kim Kardashian and her family to fame is ending in 2021 after 14 years, the E! network said on Tuesday.
Forbes said in a story posted on Friday that an examination of financial filings after the reality star and beauty mogul sold a majority share in her cosmetics company revealed that Jenner's worth was inflated.
