The Real Reason Kylie Jenner's Twitter Request Has Fans Seeing Red

The youngest member of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan, Kylie Jenner, has really put her foot in it. The 23-year-old sparked a frenzy on social media after she made a simple request. Twitter fans were seeing red as they blasted her for what they thought was an inappropriate ask.

Kylie commands an impressive 222 million followers on Instagram, while another 27 million people follow her on Twitter. The entrepreneur often uses her social media pages to promote Kylie Cosmetics, including the line's new hand sanitizer. In fact, Celebrity Net Worth dishes that Kylie has amassed a fortune of just under $700 million. Not only does she have killer business instincts, but she's also the mother of 3-year-old Stormi Webster. The Lip Kit Mogul told Harper's Bazaar, "I'm just trying my best, even though she's still little, to remind her how blessed we are and that this isn't normal, the way we live."

If Kylie's trying to keep it real with her daughter, works hard for her money, and is immensely popular with her fans, then why are her followers up in arms? Keep reading to find out why Twitter is ripping her to shreds.

Kylie Jenner under fire

Kylie Jenner's fans are upset because they think that she's stingy. She highlighted the plight of one of her makeup artists, Samuel Rauda, in a recent Instagram story. According to a GoFundMe page for Rauda, he was in a motor vehicle accident. Nikita Dragun shared a message on her Instagram story that read, "An awful accident happened and he flew off a moving vehicle crushing his head into the pavement, suffering from internal bleeding and different injuries to his brain..."

Cinema Blend shared that Kylie asked her fans to support the GoFundMe page because Rauda reportedly needs brain surgery after donating $5,000 of her own money. Again, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Stormi's mom is worth a cool $700 million. Irate followers called her out because her request did not sit well with them.

One person tweeted, "So Kylie Jenner who apparently earns over $450k A DAY and is a billionaire shared the 60k gofundme of her friend who got in an accident for us poor people to donate to? Celebrities are a different breed."

Another did the math to illustrate the celeb's wealth in real terms. "Kylie Jenner has a net worth of $700,000,000. A $5,000 donation for her is the equivalent of a person making $50,000/year donating $.35. Most people wouldn't even bother to pick that up off the sidewalk."

It appears as if her fans are adding up her lifestyle costs and wondering why she couldn't cough up just a little more.
