Internet users pulled no punches when Kylie Jenner flaunted her expensive branded chopsticks during a time of crisis.
They didn’t hold back in calling out the beauty mogul after Jenner took to her Instagram stories to share a video of her unwrapping her Louis Vuitton chopsticks. “Gotta start traveling with these,” Jenner captioned her story.
The utensils were packaged in a fancy case and emblazoned with the brand’s logo, and US Weekly reported that the they were retailing for US$450.
Her spending habits angered many social media users, who dissed her for splurging money on chopsticks instead of donating money to those affected by the coronavirus.
“It’s funny how influencers like Kylie Jenner post about needing to remember to travel with her Louis Vuitton chopsticks while there are people being laid off and wondering how they will earn their next paycheck during this pandemic,” a Twitter user described.
Other users wrote that it made them “sick” to see Jenner splurging money on luxurious goods like that. “We in the middle of a pandemic with lack of funding for basically everything and then there’s Kylie Jenner showing off her LV chopsticks,” another tweet read.
Following the backlash, Jenner made a huge donation to help Los Angeles hospitals in the fight against COVID-19. Jenner’s doctor, Dr Thaïs Aliabadi, announced on Instagram that the reality television star donated US$1 million to fund masks, face shields and protective gear.
Jenner responded to the post, writing, “I love you, and thank you for all the love and care you put into everything that you do. You are an angel on Earth.”

I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. I made a wish to the Universe to gather protective masks for our brave healthcare workers and today my dream came true. One of my patients, a beautiful Living Angel just donated $1,000,000 to help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear which we will have delivered directly to our first responders, as too many masks at hospitals are disappearing before making their way onto the faces of our front line heroes. I have never felt more blessed to be a doctor, as helping our brave ER and ICU workers feels just as gratifying as helping my own patients. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner ❤️. You are my hero. This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million....
