Kylie Jenner recently donated $1 million to aid injured animals, volunteer firefighters and people who have lost their homes and properties to the bush fires currently devastating Australia.


The fires have been spreading uncontrollably throughout parts of Nothern Australia since late December 2019 and are said to have caused the deaths of over 500 animals and 24 people.

The 22-year-old cosmetics investor's act of compassion, which made it to viral news, came a little late after the public's criticism, for the fact that she had not contributed cash unlike other celebrities to help Australia.

As it stood by Sunday, other celebrities such as Chris Hemsworth, Nicole Kidman, Pink, and more had collectively given out $2 million for that purpose. But according to a source, Kylie was already in the process of donating before the public criticism came about.

Kylie Jenner Posts a Photo of Her Wearing Shoes Made of Animal Material

Hours later after contributing 2 million dollars to help animals and people devasted by the fires, the Los Angeles born billionaire posted about the environmental impact of the infernos on wildlife right before sharing a picture of herself in slippers made out of animal fur. In the post, beauty had talked about the fact that too many animals have been killed in Australia in recent years and there is a need to protect the remaining animals through environmental protection.

Attracting further controversy, her critics called her out for not being sincere. Many were outraged and took to Twitter to voice their disappointment with the wealthiest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. One user wrote, "Just another case of preaching water and drinking wine".

Another one wrote, "She is a hypocrite who pretends to stand for animal rights but wears shoes made of animal materials, which were probably acquired through killing animals."
