Kylie Jenner asks for donations for injured makeup artist: ‘Eat the rich’ – Kylie Jenner is fielding intense criticism after asking followers to donate money to a fundraising campaign for the medical expenses of a makeup artist who was injured last week.
Makeup artist Samuel Rauda was injured in an unspecified accident, according to the GoFundMe page organized by his family. He underwent “major surgery” on March 14, and “has a long road to recovery ahead of him.”
“Anyone who knows Samuel can say he is the most loving and kind person you could ever meet! He has a big heart and doesn’t hesitate to help someone in need. When you are having a rough day, he certainly knows how to make you laugh and turn that frown upside down,” the GoFundMe page reads. “At this moment, he needs our support and prayers more than ever.”
On an Instagram Story, Jenner, 23, asked her 222 million followers to donate to the fundraising campaign. Along with a black-and-white photo of Rauda, Jenner shared a message requesting prayers and donations for his recovery, according to the Sun.
“May God watch over you and protect you @makeupbysamuel,” the message is said to have read. “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 GoFundMe.” The message included a link to Rauda’s GoFundMe page, which has raised $97,593.
But Jenner’s request for donations didn’t sit so well with some followers, who found the fact that the cosmetics tycoon and reality star was asking for money to be unseemly since she’s worth $900 million, according to Forbes.
