Kylie Jennerwas once dubbed the world’s most youngest “self-made billionaire” by Forbes Magazine.
Although this title has since been revoked, her net worth is just shy of a billion dollars, and at 23 that is very impressive.
Therefore, when the youngest Kardashian sister took to Instagram to ask fans to donate to her makeup artist’s emergency surgery, it didn’t sit well with many online.

Kylie shared a link on to a GoFundMe page for her friend Samuel Rauda.
The 26 year old, who often does the star’s face, was seriously injured in a road traffic accident last weekend.
He had to have major surgery on 14 March, and his family set up a page to raise money to pay the medical bill.

Kylie then took to Instagram to enlist her followers’ help in raising $60,000 (which translates to £43,258.83). The star apparently donated just $5000 (£3,604.90) of her own money.

Posting a link to the page, she 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’ GoFundMe.”
Many took to Twitter to share their outrage, with one writing: “#Billionaires like Kylie Jenner sharing GoFundMe for close friends? Speaks to BIGGER ISSUE.
“We make rich people richer. We keep giving celebrities our hard earned money when clearly many of them wouldn’t let go of their money even to save a life of a close friend.”

Another wrote: “Kylie Jenner makes almost half a million dollars every day and she is still asking her relatively poor fans to pay for her friends $60,000 medical bills? Eat the rich.”
A third person commented: “kylie jenner bought her toddler a $15,000 handbag but is asking her fans for money”
