Yesterday, I reported that Kylie Jenner is being trolled on social media due to her request for donating makeup artist Samuel Rauda. Many of her fans think that she should not ask people to donate as she is rich and can pay all of his medical bills.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star came to know about Samuel Rauda’s surgery and took to Instagram to request her followers to donate something for his speedy recovery. When making the request, she drew people’s attention toward a social media page managed by Samuel Rauda’s family members. The name of this page is GoFundMe and it reads "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."
What happened to Samuel Rauda?
Despite what people have to say about Kylie Jenner, everybody wants to know what actually happened to Samuel Rauda. This is because his horrific car accident has shocked Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, and the rest of their family members. According to the GoFundMe page, the makeup artist underwent surgery on March 14 because of a road accident. This page is being organized by someone named Johanna Portillo.
Samuel Rauda’s friend, reality TV star, and influencer La Demi has provided complete details on the awful accident on her Instagram Stories. She writes “He flew off of a moving vehicle crushing his head into the pavement,” she wrote, adding that Rauda had been “suffering from internal bleeding and 8 different injuries to his brain.”
It is not clear when the accident took place and how many people were involved or present at the scene. La Demi further says that Samuel Rauda’s surgery has gone well but the ailing makeup artist and his family have been left with overwhelming medical expenses.
Kylie Jenner opens up about the backlash
23-year-old Kylie Jenner has shared dozen of posts on Instagram to make her 220 million followers understand that their funds could save the life of the injured makeup artist. Instead of supporting her, a significant number of people dragged her for donating only $5000 while pushing others to make as many contributions as possible. According to Kylie Jenner, she has been the victim of a false narrative. Her social media posts are misrepresented and people are criticizing her for no good reason.
What does Kylie Jenner say on this matter?
Kylie Jenner said “I am very disappointed about the misinformation. I feel it’s important for me to clear up this false narrative that I’ve asked fans for money and am not paying for my makeup artist’s medical bills. Sam isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately, we don’t have a personal relationship anymore but I have worked with him a few years ago and think he’s the sweetest."
She continued “I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s GoFundMe and I called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam." She then posted the link to the GFM on her Instagram Stories to reveal more details. It is a good thing. Kylie Jenner does not want people to take her efforts in the wrong way. She has made it clear that Samuel Rauda’s family had reached out to her via Ariel. They wanted her to support them via prayers, donations, and love, and this is what led the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star to take this step.
