Kylie Jenner has finally responded to the controversy with regards her donation appeal for a makeup artist’s GoFundMe campaign.
In the event that you haven’t been on earth, the 23-year-old ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ television star posted on Thursday, 18th of March for her Instagram fans to give to cosmetologist, Samuel Rauda’s GoFundMe to assist in raising money for his hospital treatment and brain surgery after a he was involved in a car crash.
Kylie’s $5,000 donation, however, incured the wrath of her fans who believe she should be able the cover the cost of the health bill due to her networth.
Kylie has, however, shed more light on the controversy with a statement that reads:
“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,” She said.
“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 [donated] 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 asserted.
“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,” she finished.
