Kim Kardashian Claps Back at Claims That Her Family Hasn't Donated to Australia Wildfire Relief Efforts
Kim Kardashian accuses a fan of being misinformed about her family's efforts to help Australia. Her sister Khloe Kardashian also responded with her own clap back.
Kim Kardashian spoke out against a fan who accused her family of not donating to the relief efforts for Australia.
The reality star took to her Twitter account this week to express her dismay over a fan’s misinformed notion about her family. In a now-deleted tweet, the fan suggested that the famous family did not donate a penny to help Australia and tagged Kim and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
Since news of the devastating wildfires that killed over half a billion animals and burned millions of acres in New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia, many celebrities have stepped up to offer their financial help.
In response, Kim retweeted the post and strongly stated, “nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything.”

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE FAMILY'S RELIEF EFFORTS
Kim did not provide details about her personal efforts to help Australia but Khloe responded by explaining why it shouldn’t be necessary to broadcast their family’s philanthropic actions.
"Good deeds should be done with intention and not for attention," she wrote and added that their family has been active in encouraging others to donate to their causes.
Good deeds should be done with intention and not for attention. We are all blessed to be able to bless others even if it is in the slightest way. But we do not need to be boastful about that. Be boastful in regards to teaching others how they may be able to help as well.— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 6, 2020
Kim likewise posted on her Instagram Stories about the pledge of a teeth whitening company she endorses to donate $100,000 to the wildlife rescue efforts in Australia. This in addition to her daily tweets sharing stories about the fires and directing people to where they can donate.
As of this week, Kylie made a considerable donation of $1 million split to various organizations which assist in putting an end to the bushfires and taking care of affected animals.
We often bring attention to causes and ways you can donate. It’s our job to bring awareness to situations so we all can help as a human race. We Frequently post/speak about organizations/websites where we can all help save our planet.— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 6, 2020
