Billionaire Kylie Jenner comes under fire for asking fans to donate money for a makeup artist, Samuel Rauda’s brain surgery after car accident


Kylie Jenner has come under fire after asking her fans to help pay for a makeup artist’s brain surgery that was required after a car accident.

The 23-year-old star requested her followers go to a Go Fund Me campaign to chip in which revealed the TV star had put in $5,000 herself.

But the initial goal was $10,000 and there was already $6,000 pledged so she added another $5,000 to bring it over its goal. The amount pledged ballooned to over $100,000 after Jenner’s support became public.

Still, Jenner – who is worth around $1billion thanks to the success of her Kylie Cosmetics – was criticized for not doing more for the makeup artist she worked with only twice in 2015 when he was a stylist.Giving something: Jenner\'s donation of $5,000 is currently one of the campaign\'s top contributions, with the highest being in the amount of $12,000

Kylie wrote: ‘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.’

The online campaign is soliciting donations for Samuel Rauda, a makeup artist who underwent emergency surgery after sustaining multiple injuries in a recent car accident.

He previously worked with the influencer as her stylist only twice in 2015 and is not her makeup artist.A good cause:\u00A0The 23-year-old star requested her followers go to a Go Fund Me campaign to chip in which revealed the TV star had only put in $5,000 herself.

Many of the reality television personality’s fans were quick to notice that she had only donated $5,000 to her friend’s medical fund.

But they did not know that the initial fund was for only $10,000. When she dropped in her $5,000, the fund had $6,000 in it, bringing the amount past its goal.

Still, the haters took to their social media outlets, particularly Twitter, to voice their disapproval of Jenner’s donation.

The Go Fund Me campaign, which was started on March 16, has raised $97,443 with an updated goal of $120,000; the organizers initially sought to raise $10,000 for Rauda’s medical care.
