Known for her title as “the youngest self-made billionaire”, Kylie Jenner has faced backlash after asking fans to donate to her makeup artist's GoFundMe page, after they were injured in an accident. 

The 23-year-old celebrity wrote on her Instagram:

“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."

Jenner’s makeup artist Samuel Rauda had emergency brain surgery following a car crash in March 2021. Rauda’s family set up a GoFundMe page, 'Samuel Rauda’s Medical Expense Fund', which included the description:

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. At this moment, he needs our support and prayers more than ever. Sam underwent major surgery on Sunday, 3/14/21. He has a long road to recovery ahead of him. I know he is loved by many. Your donations will help cover the cost of his medical expenses and what's to come. Please know that a donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. The Lord bless you abundantly!

Fans have criticised the Kylie Cosmetics founder, for asking fans to donate rather than funding the medical expenses herself. Jenner has an estimated net worth of $900 million (USD) which means she makes $450,000 a day. It caused lots of opinions to be shared on Twitter:

People have also compared the situation to the recent shooting of Lady Gaga's dog walker. Gaga's French bulldogs were involved in a kidnapping which resulted in her dog walker Ryan Fischer being shot four times. She reportedly paid for the $97,500 medical bill.

Rauda’s GoFundMe page currently has a $120,000 target.
