“Kylie Jenner said a billion dollars is not enough, let me keep capitalising on poor people in the middle of a pandemic.”
Kylie Jenner is facing backlash after releasing a new hand sanitiser product through her Kylie Skin brand which has led to many people accusing her of “profiting from the pandemic”.
Kylie made the announcement that she had released a hand sanitizer across social media on Tuesday.
“Kylie Jenner said a billion dollars is not enough, let me keep capitalizing on poor people in the middle of a pandemic,” one person wrote. “Like if you actually wanna help make it free or rot.”
“Kylie really made Kylie Skin hand sanitizer?” wrote another, “Like, let’s profit off a pandemic.”
“Not Kylie capitalizing off hand sanitizer,” another commented. “Period sis.”
Others just expressed their disbelief.
While some said that the product was completely unrelated to the rest of the Kylie Skin collection and should be given away free with other purchases.
This isn’t the first time the Kardashian/Jenners have been accused of exploiting the pandemic for profit. Back in March, Kim was criticised for quickly producing and marketing face masks through her Skims line.
And this latest backlash comes after months of criticism aimed at the Kardashian/Jenners over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic .
In April, Kylie was called out for breaking social distancing and stay-at-home orders by mixing with other households . Shortly afterwards, the family once again flouted official guidelines to celebrate Scott Disick’s birthday .
The family then travelled to a private island with 40 other guests to celebrate Kim Kardashian West’s birthday in October, attended a party with 100 guests for Kendall Jenner’s birthday days after returning, and also ignored multiple official CDC guidelines to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Christmas together.
“Everyone mad at Kylie Jenner for flying around the world during COVID like did y’all really think she cared about anyone but herself???” wrote one person on Twitter after Kylie shared a series of photos from the lavish trip.
