Kylie Jenner Donates $1M To Help BattleAustralian Wildfires After Initial

The world’s youngest self-made billionaire, Kylie Jenner recently posted about being heartbroken over the loss of nearly half a billion animals in the devastating Australian wildfires.

The 22-year-old reality as part of providing Australian wildlife relief has now donated $1 million (N362,500,000). The money will go into firefighting relief efforts on the burning continent.


Jenner’s donation is coming on the heels of the backlash she received when she posted an Instagram story to express her sorrow about the loss of wildlife. She shared a picture of a firefighter holding a terrified koala bear next to a burning tree and wrote: “this breaks my heart.”

Later on, she shared an Instagram story of her wearing pink mink Louis Vuitton slippers with her pink pedicure showing. Jenner’s fans bashed her for wearing mink and shared her two posts side by side.

An Instagram user ashleyollie269 captioned the post, “SAVE THE KOALAS BUT MURDER THE MINKS.

This is not the first time Jenner is coming under attack in regards to the wildfire as she had to distance herself from it on January 6.

She had posted a photo of herself next to a burning fireplace while wearing a sexy outfit of a nude crop top and high-waisted underwear with nude fish net fabric over it. She initially wrote “‘find ur fire” along with a flame emoji as the caption, but got called out for it. One fan named itnfdg commented, “If anyone needs a fire, you can have ours — Australia.”

Kylie then changed the caption to “night out,” but fans still went after her in the comments of the photo.

User franaz94 wrote, “What have you and your fam done for the Australian Bushfires!? The Hemsworth Fam donated 1 mill. Your family can definitely do better? Also a lot of companies are giving proceeds to help out as well. While you love to flaunt how much money you have.” paolackp added, “How can the suffering of one animal break your heart and you wear mink???? Have you seen how they suffer???” User ravengispert commented, “We LOVE a girl that talks about how she cares about animals but wears them.”
