Kylie Jenner got dragged by her followers after she shared an image of her customized chopsticks.
Kylie Jenner has often shown off her designer products on social media, but when she did so recently, her fans were unimpressed.

According to Hollywood Life, the 22-year-old had uploaded a video of her new $450 custom-made Louis Vuitton chopsticks to her story over the weekend. The clip showed her hands carefully opening the case to reveal the chopsticks within.
Kylie and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been active in encouraging people to stay home amid the pandemic.

Instead of getting applause from her fans, her critics told her that she should be using her money to help people suffering during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
One person had, in fact, tweeted “Sick, people are starving to death. Do something if you can.” Hollywood Life noted that another user told her that it was not helpful for her to keep showing off her luxuries while people around the world were starving.
A third person added that if they ever owned a pair of Louis Vuitton chopsticks, they would never use it to eat.
As the outrage against Kylie’s action continues, it would be worth noting that the reality star was recently called out by U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams.
People revealed that Jerome’s call out occurred when he appeared on “Good Morning America” and addressed how young people needed to start taking the virus more seriously. While speaking to the show’s co-host, Michael Strahan, Jerome stated that:
“We need to get Kylie Jenner and our social media influencers out there helping folks understand that this is serious, this is absolutely serious, people are dying.”
People, however, noted that Kylie and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been active in encouraging people to stay home amid the pandemic.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail previously reported that Kylie claimed that being pregnant prepared her for self-isolation.
It would be recalled that after she became pregnant with her daughter, Stormi, Kylie had ensured that she did all she could to hide her growing baby bump from the eyes of the public.
To that end, the business mogul and mother-of-one began wearing baggy clothes for her Instagram updates and stayed away from the public at the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018.
